Talking to a daily, Sudhir Mishra said, "The roles of women I write are slightly mysterious and they are women who will never totally belong to you and are yet feminine and attractive. Chitrangda Singh personifies that for me and I don't have to convince her as she just comes and plays it."
The Inkaar director further told the daily, "She is quite strong-willed and has said no to me for a role. For me, she is an actor and as an actor I find her interesting. I like the fact that she is somewhere else and she comes and works well with me."
Chitrangada Singh has also worked in Mishra's Yeh Saali Zindagi opposite Irrfan Khan. Her upcoming film Inkaar is also directed by Sudhir Mishra.
