Biography: The dusky beauty is one of the talented actress Bollywood has today. Chitrangada launched in the industry with Sudhir Mishra’s social and political drama, Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi (2003). Her performance as the protected yet unsettled Geeta Rao won her admiring reviews and several debut awards of the year in the Promising Female category. Originally a model from Delhi, Chitrangada worked in several advertisement campaigns and music videos before plunging into Bollywood. Often called Sudhir Mishra’s muse, Shekhar Kappor appreciated Chitrangada for having “outdone Smita Patil”. She worked in 2005’s Kal: Yesterday and Tomorrow, following which she took a short break. She reappeared with Onir’s Sorry Bhai (2008) starring alongside Sanjay Suri and Sharman Joshi. The film failed to create any ripples. But she bounced back with Sudhir Mishra’s Yeh Saali Zindagi and the commercially successful Desi Boyz in 2011. She shared screen space with Akshay Kumar, John Abraham and Deepika Padukone in her first ever commercial venture.
Presently, she has performed on the raunchy item song, ‘Kaafirana’ from Shirish Kunder’s 2012 comedy flick, ‘Joker’ with Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha in the lead. An active supporter of animal rights, she recently did an advertisement for PETA. She is currently working on projects like ‘I, Me aur Hum’ and Sudhir Mishra’s under production, Inkaar. She would also pair up with Arjun Rampal for Sudhir Mishra’s Lucknow based political thriller ‘Mehrunissa’.
Chitrangada has many commercials like Garnier, Airtel, Puma, Aliva Crackers, Parachute and Borges Olive Oil in her kitty.
