Working outside of ones comfort zone can always be a challenge, but there’s only so far one will go until they reach their limit. This is certainly something director Kushan Nandy found out when her told actress Chitrangada Singh to do a scene in a very inappropriate way, leading her to walk out of the film.
The film titled ‘Babumoshai Bandookbaaz ‘, included a scene where actor Nawazzuddin Siddique and Singh become slightly intimate. However, not being happy with the first shot, Nandy told Singh to go all the way. “Kushan got a bit too engaged in the scene in question, which required Nawaz to only pull Chitrangada roughly on the bed and realise that someone is watching them. Kushan was not happy with the first take. He thundered: Chitrangada, you ought to get literally on top of Nawaz. Tange ragdo and sex karo,” Spotboye reported a source stating.
It went on to explain, “Chitrangada told Nandy that how can he speak to her so outrageously while giving directions about an intimate scene in front of the entire unit. Kushan replied: Okay, let’s talk it out aside. But by then, Chitrangada had lost it. She shot back: Now that you have started it in front of so many people, why end it in a place away from them? What do you think of yourself, Kushan?”
However, there are other who claim that these reports are untrue, and it was actually Singh who was giving Nandy a hard time. “Blatant lies. These allegations are false. Chitrangda was continuously arguing on the scenes. We don’t make erotic films.��Directors get involved in their scenes and exaggerate a bit to get the best out of their actors.��Chitrangada was not performing well, the film was suffering and we asked her to leave. She has too much attitude and not only wanted changes in the script but even reported late on the sets,” a source close to Nandy revealed.
Reports also suggest that the actress and director had problems from the start. Apparently the actress wasn’t happy with the revealing costumes that she was appointed to wear. When confronted by the director of wearing such clothes for her other films, Singh responded with how they were all commercial flicks, where her scenes were shot in a different way.
Regardless of what happened the actress is no longer a part of the film, and Nandy will now have to look for another actress who will be a little more flexible.
