The dusky beauty was in conversation with trade analyst Komal Nahta on his show on ETC Bollywood Business. She was also in the capital Thursday, along with co-stars Akshay Kumar, John Abraham and Deepika Padukone, to share insights on the film with her fans.
"Desi Boyz is kind of a debut for me as I have been part of different kind of films so far. I was getting a bit bored of doing the same kind of cinema so I thought I should do something different. I had a great time working in my first commercial film," she told reporters. The actress made her Bollywood debut in 2003 with Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi, and was subsequently seen in films like Sorry Bhai!, Basra and Yeh Saali Zindagi.
In Desi Boys, Chitrangada plays Akshay's love interest. Sharing her experience of working with the action star, she told Nahta: "Akshay is fantastic. He's very encouraging, warm and very humble. He helped me out with tips during dance sequence."
She also refuted reports of constant cat fights with Deepika during the film's shoot. "All is well between me and Deepika and there were no tiffs. We have just one scene together and we spoke on the day we shot it and that too was shot few days ago. As a matter of fact, we both have encountered each other more now during the movie's promotion," she said.
While Desi Boyz will release on November 25, Nahta's tete-a-tete with Chitrangada will be aired on Monday.
