Hello, just when she had been deleted from the mind, there's news that she's coming up with two movies Aseeema and Desh Drohi. Associated with two big time hits – Lagaan and Munnabhai MBBS – something seemed to have gone topsy turvy for the actress who was first seen briefly in Gulzar's Hu Tu Tu.
Gracy Singh hasn't been seen for months (or is it years?). Expectedly, when you talk to her, she says that's because she has become "selective and wiser. I've been offered loads of work from all over. But I don't want to make any hasty moves."
If she hasn't been cast again by her mentor directors Ashutosh Gowariker and also by Raju Hirani, she states, "They know whom to cast for which role. I'm cool about not being approached for their next projects."
Vis-à-vis, recent reports that she had slapped an assistant director on the sets, she snaps,"Why would I be so juvenile? If I have a problem with smoking, I'd rather move away from a guy who smokes. I think it was just a gimmick to get some media attention."
In the last season of Koffee with Karan, Lara Dutta had called her Miss Congeniality. To that GS chuckles, "Really? If she did, she's really a sweetheart. I'm sure there was no malicious intention there."
Recently, designer Reza Shariffi was quoted as saying, "Gracy is never happy.. no matter what you design for her." Singh clarifies that she has worked with Shariffi only once on a photo-shoot with Subi Samuel.
She denies knowing him and retorts, "I wore whatever was designed for me at the shoot. I didn't throw a fit. I wonder what's wrong with him? He's not even my designer.. personal or professional."
