Chitrangada Singh is one of the most talented actresses in Bollywood, with her having carved her own niche in the film industry. The actress, whose latest film to release was Bazaar, has mentioned how the industry and audience tend to stereotype certain actors based on their on-screen image, which is scary at times, in a candid interview with IANS.
Chintrangada Singh has mostly portrayed strong, idealistic and intelligent women on screen, ever since her debut in 2003 with the film Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi. She then goes on to talk about how the audience tends to perceive the real-life personality of the audience along the lines of the characters they portray on screen.
While Singh’s performances have all been critically acclaimed in all of her films, they often fail to exceed expectations at the box office. When asked about how films showcasing reality fail, she explained that films such as Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi, Mandi, Masoom, Mirch Masala, and so on focus on showing the important stories to the society, rather than just commercial success. Some films do not earn a lot because they are ahead of their times, bending the formula for a commercially successful film. Eventually, these films turn into a cult.
The actress recently co-starred with Radhika Apte and Saif Ali Khan in the film Bazaar, that was released on 26th October.
