After starring in a few offbeat movies, the dusky actress is all set to go mainstream. Chitrangada Singh has been signed opposite Hrithik Roshan for playing the role of a sexy female mutant in much-awaited Krissh 2.
So fans who are accustomed to seeing Chitrangada in a simple and serious avatar will have to gear up for her drastically different look. If reports are to be believed, the actress wouldn't be recognised easily after undergoing a make-over.
A source informed Mumbai Mirror, "There are two leading ladies in the film. Priyanka Chopra, who starred opposite Hrithik in Krissh (2006), will be back in the same role. The other major female protagonist will be played by Chitrangda. They needed someone who could look earthy and ethereal. Both Rakesh and Hrithik Roshan decided Chitrangda was the best bet for the part of the sizzling female mutant."
Chitrangada however is not ready to share the development with press as yet. She told the tabloid, "I’m really not allowed to talk about this. I’ve just returned from shooting Desi Boyz in London. I got to do some serious Bollywood dancing for the first time. Akshay Kumar really helped me with my steps. I am surprised at how much he understands cinema. I wouldn’t be surprised if he turns director soon."
With mainstream hotties making inroads in offbeat cinema, we really won't mind a serious actress dabbling into some commercial masala fare. Would we?
