Chitrangda Singh to team up with Anees Bazmee for second film as producer
After debuting as a producer with Shaad Ali’s biopic on hockey player and former India captain Sandeep Singh (the film features Diljit Dosanjh and Taapsee Pannu in the lead roles), Chitrangda Singh seems to have gathered quite a lot of confidence and is now all set to start her next project (again, as a producer) with Anees Bazmee.
Mumbai Mirror recently reported that the No Entry and Welcome series director, Bazmee is all set to produce a comedy which will have liberal doses of drama as well. The film will be directed by Abhishek Dogra and Chitrangda has agreed to co-produce the film.
Production on the film will begin in January 2018; Dogra, who previously directed Dolly Ki Doli, has confirmed the script is currently being finalised. Dogra currently is busy shooting a situational comedy titled FryDay with Govinda and Varun Sharma in Delhi.
Multiple sources have also confirmed that the Bazmee-Chitrangada bond is pretty strong and the duo is also planning to come up with a studio of their own. “Chitrangda has had three meetings with Anees and Abhishek in the last two months and finally gave her nod to back the film as co-producer,” a source said.
Chitrangda has earlier praised the 'Bazmee-kind-of' drama and she had also expressed that her liking towards the same genre. “I really was laughing while watching Thank You, same with Singh is Kinng. I felt it just too funny, especially Jaaved Jafferi," she said in a press meet.
Chitrangda recently made headlines for quitting Babumoshai Bandookbaaz. She is now shooting for Tigmanshu Dhulia’s Saheb Biwi Aur Gangster 3 in Rajasthan which also stars Sanjay Dutt. She has also been tweeting quite frequently from the sets of the film.
The film also features Nafisa Ali, Kabir Bedi, Jimmy Sheirgill and Soha Ali Khan.
