Sudhir Mishra’s dream project ‘Mehrunissa’ has now got its female lead’s face. She is none other than his favorite Chitrangda Singh. Vidya Balan and Katrina Kaif were earlier considered for the role. And Vidya’s candidature for much strong.
The director of ‘Mehrunissa’ says, “The challenge for Chitrangda is to make her presence felt between two stalwarts namely Big B and Rishi Kapoor. Mehrunissa is a love story with two heroes and the girl, who is the catalyst. I am sure Chitrangda will be able to create an eloquent space for herself.”
However rubbishing Chitrangda being his favorite, Sudhir says, “I don’t see why such a big deal is made about my working with Chitrangda. She is a very talented actress, beautiful, focused, does her work wonderfully and then goes home.”
“There is no baggage carried beyond the sets. Why is it that a director and an actress working together repeatedly draw such a response? When Priyadarshan and Akshay Kumar work together, no one questions their collaboration,” he adds.
Sudhir and Chitrangda will be working for the third time together on a project.Chitrangda Singh zeroed down as Sudhir Mishra’s Mehrunissa,
