Chitrangada Singh once considered filmmaker Sudhir Mishra her mentor. That was a long time ago and ever since she signed on Desi Boyz with Akshay Kumar she has been turning to Salman Khan for career advice. Apparently, when she was preparing to make her debut as a producer with the Diljit Dosanjh-starrer Soorma, she had made Salman’s home at Galaxy Apartments a regular haunt.
Insiders revealed that Salman is very fond of Chitrangada. He admires her drive and he advises her on important matters. Chitrangada had shared the first look of her sports film Soorma with Salman and asked him for his feedback. She has also been visiting him seeking more guidance regarding promotions and other aspects regarding the release of her film – after all, who better than the super successful Salman to support her in these matters!
Now the world will catch a glimpse of their warmth on ‘Dus Ka Dum’. Chitrangda had visited the sets of Salman Khan’s game show to promote her first film as a producer. And since the two actors share a good rapport both personal and professional, their camaraderie was there to see.
Known for his mischievous sense of humour, Salman kept teasing the gorgeous Chitrangda on the sets. First he congratulated her on turning producer but soon he was teasingly telling her that she was supposed to cast him in her production, but instead, she chose Diljit Dosanjh. The poor girl couldn’t come up with a suitable response to Salman’s question and laughed it off.
In a recent interview, Chitrangada has opened up about actresses turning producers. “If you have passion and experience, make a story that you want to make,” she declared. “Instead of just sitting at home and waiting for offers to come, I think it is fantastic that women producers if they are not getting the kind of parts they want to play, are going out and creating some.”
Incidentally, Chitrangada does not star in Soorma. The film pairs Diljit opposite Taapsee Pannu.
