Chitrangada Singh’s closeness with Salman Khan is well-known. The actress has often been spotted horse-riding and swimming in his Panvel ...
Has Chitrangada Singh burnt bridges with Salman Khan?
Probably that’s why we didn’t expect the sultry actress to do anything that might jeopardise her friendship with the Sultan star. But this news had us doing a double take.
The story goes that the Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi actress was approached by Samir Ingle (financer of Tanu Weds Manu) for his debut production Kalpanik. The film's writer Amit Khan met Ms Singh with the offer, which will be helmed by debutante Rajesh Nair.
We hear, Chitrangada was extremely excited about the film and gave her nod to it- but with a suggestion that Randeep Hooda should be roped in as the male lead because he is a terrific actor.
Amit was a tad surprised by the actress' putting forth her choice, but promised to get back.
Cut to a few weeks later – the writer contacted Chitrangada to tell her jubilantly that everything had been put in place, including the lead actor – Arbaaz Khan.
Erm...Arbaaz as her film’s hero didn’t quite sit well with Ms Singh’s plans. While she did not express her displeasure to the writer or the producer-director duo then, she virtually disappeared on them.
