Chitrangda Singh: ‘Desi Boyz’ is like a debut film for me

The actor of intense films says she enjoyed doing a commercial film like Desi Boyz

Actor Chitrangada Singh, so far seen in offbeat roles, is excited about her first commercial film Desi Boyz. She plays a professor with dollops of oomph, and says she feels as though she is making her debut. Talking about the kind of work she has so far done, Chitrangda said: “Kaam ata tha, but ek jaisa kaam ata tha (Work came to me, but always the same kind of work)…People couldn’t imagine me doing a commercial movie.”

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 said.

Chitrangda made her Bollywood debut in 2003 with Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi, and was subsequently seen in films like Sorry Bhai! and Yeh Saali Zindagi among others. In Desi Boyz, Chitrangda plays Akshay’s love interest. Sharing her experience of working with the action star, she said: “Akshay is fantastic. He’s very encouraging, warm and very humble. He helped me out with tips during a dance sequence.”

The actor refuted reports of constant catfights with Deepika during the film’s shoot. “All is well between Deepika and me 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 a 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 November 25, Nahta’s tête-à-tête with Chitrangda will be aired tonight.

    Desi Boyz will too be a disappointment , Have u not learned from recent movies like rascals , Ra -one , kambakkt ishq Etc , it has same childish loud comedy , no story line . it tries to attracts as many people to come to theater at first week , through marketing fundas like publicity stunts ,appearing in shows to promote movies ( like appearing in big boss ) , attending news interview , they will try much hard do do marketing (promoting) rather than making good movie . and get same reaction from people “arey movie bekaar thi” paisey waste , and collections fall from next week .The me is here ,but they recover cost in first week by all these promotions (fooling people ,same like telemarketing huge claims )Same is with Desi boys ,hyped ,promoted , marketed hugely to recover money , no money for script , dialog ,story and quality

      Are you gonna post this everywhere. Every site I visit, you have post this same lame comment, obviously cos you hate one of the actors in the film. Get a life!! You haven’t even seen the film. Watch the movie and you’ll see that it is the best comedy in recent times, and definitely the best comedy of the year!!
