Sudhir is my mentor: Chitrangada Singh
Actress Chitrangada Singh was shocked to read recent reports that quoted her as saying that filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj is her mentor and not Sudhir Mishra, the director who discovered her in Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi. “That was really wrong. Sudhir Mishra is my mentor, and he’ll always be. I was asked who besides him, so I said ‘okay, Vishal Bhardwaj’, because I share a comfort level with him and I turn to him for advise if I want another opinion, and they really had fun playing up the whole thing,” she says.
Singh has just wrapped up Mishra’s Dil Dar Ba Dar. “There’s some patchwork left. It was quite an experience shooting in Delhi. We shot in the worst of winter at three in the morning, but then I used to come back home, so it was a relief,” says the actress who still spends most of her time in her Gurgaon house with husband Jyoti Randhawa. “I haven’t shifted base to Mumbai, as is speculated.
I’ve a house there. I keep shuttling between the two cities.” Chitrangada admits her busy schedule keeps her away from her husband. “We recently spent a wonderful week together, but now he’s again travelling... I’ll join him in Italy soon, and then we’ll catch up with each other,” she says.Her next project Driver, again with Mishra, is supposedly based on the Sanjeev Nanda hit-and-run case. “But I can’t talk about it,” she says.
