We did see her in an item song  and a guest appearance in a couple  of films. But Chitrangada Singh has been missing  in action from the  movies for the last five years. Her last full-fledged  appearance was in Sudhir Mishra’s Inkaar in 2013. Now she will be seen again in Tigmanshu Dhulia’s Sahib Bibi Aur Gangster 3.

Chitrangada refuses  to  call it a comeback. “The past few years, I’d say  was a  time  of  great churning. Many things were happening in my life. I needed  to sort out my life before plunging into a  new phase in  my career. Now I am far more settled and calm and ready for my next innings.” Chitrangda has now moved bag and  baggage to Mumbai. “Earlier I was shuttling between Delhi and Mumbai. Producers would wonder whether I was in Delhi or Mumbai. I am now full Mumbai based.” 

As for Saheb Bibi Aur Gangster 3, here’s how it happened. “The director Tigmanshu Dhulia and I were discussing projects  for a while. This time I  took the  plunge. And I  loved it. My role is that of a nautch girl. She comes  from a family that has served Sanjay Dutt. And now  it’s her turn.She’s secretly in love with him. But never expresses her  feelings. She is the only pureheart  among the  corrupt characters  of the  film.”

Interestingly, Chitrangada describes herself as a pure soul in  her other  project as well. “I play Saif Ali Khan’s wife in Bazaar. Again  in a world gone to seed she’s the fulcrum of  purity.” Chitrangada was very impressed by Sanjay Dutt during the shooting of Saheb Bibi  Aur Gangster. “He is so dedicated and  so focused on his work. Tigmanshu was apprehensive about Sanjay Dutt’s  schedules. But Sanjay surprised everyone with his discipline. I had worked with him when he did a brief role in Desi Boyz. This  time I got to work with him  full-on.And  it was  enjoyable.” 

She  now looks forward  to more quality work. “As I said , I am now more relaxed and  in Mumbai.My son is in Delhi. I  get to visit him whenever I  feel like. I am making a new life for my career and  looking forward to a fresh start in  my career.”
