Actress Chitrangda Singh says she is thankful to filmmaker Sudhir Mishra for giving her life as an actor.
She was first cast in Mishra's 2003 film Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi, and is often called as his muse.
"Sudhir gave me a life as an actor. I owe him so much. Sudhir is a qualified man. He is a psychologist and he has a degree in that. So he understands different persons, and the way he directs his actors is outstanding," Chitrangada told IANS.
She will be seen in Mishra's next film Inkaar too, and says she has experimented with three different looks in the movie.
"I am quite open to experimenting with different looks. In this film, I have explored three different looks. This film is a story spanning over seven years, so I have to look like a college kid initially who works as an intern, then a corporate look and then wear a much more mature look," she said.
Inkaar is based on the theme of sexual harassment at the workplace and falls under the category of an A certificate movie. However, Chitrangda says she is open to such movies as long as there is strong content.
"I think the censor board is doing a great job. I am open to do an adult film as long as it has a strong content and (it is not) just not to titillate the audience," the 36-year-old said.
Inkaar also features Arjun Rampal. It is slated to release Jan 18, 2013.

Back in the early 2000s, Neha Dhupia had famously stated that only sex and Shah Rukh Khan sell in Bollywood. Shah Rukh Khan, of course, continues to be saleable, and as far as sex goes, the makers of upcoming film Inkaar can surely vouch for its commercial power. How else would you explain a major condom brand offering the whopping amount of Rs. 2 crore for an exclusive tie-up with the Arjun Rampal-Chitrangada Singh starrer? STORY INSIDE

Arjun Rampal, Chitrangda Singh's next revised four times due to its explicit content
Movie trailers are usually meant to create a buzz and set expectations among audiences high. But the promo for Arjun Rampal and Chitrangda Singh’s next film, Inkaar, has ended up going through more than four additional cuts, thanks to the sizzling on-screen chemistry between the two.
Inkaar, which is about sexual harassment at the workplace, will see Arjun and Chitrangda battle it out in a war of the sexes. A source close to the film says, "Played as a courtroom drama, the content of Inkaar is bold and controversial. The theatrical trailer of the film has gone through four revisions as the team feels that the content is too steamy. They want the revisions to be honest so that the film doesn’t look cheap." The source further adds, "This is an intelligent film and therefore the team wants the target audience to be communicated correctly." READ ON
