Actresses Perceived By Reel Image In Real Life: Chitrangda

Having started her film career in 2003 with "Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi", the actress has mostly been offered films in which she has portrayed a strong, idealistic and intelligent woman

Chitrangda Singh, whose latest film to release is "Baazaar", says actresses get stereotyped by the film fraternity and audience alike based on their on-screen image, and this is "scary" at times.

Having started her film career in 2003 with "Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi", the actress has mostly been offered films in which she has portrayed a strong, idealistic and intelligent woman.

Chitrangda told IANS here in an interview: "I think actresses are perceived by their on-screen image in real life. I remember how after my debut film, people tend to think that I live my life wearing cotton saris like Geeta Rao of the film. If we are doing something 
on-screen, and doing it conveniently, whether it's the film fraternity or the audience -- they start thinking about us like that.

"I am sure actresses who are doing bold scenes if a character demands, they might be perceived in the same manner in real life, which is scary."

Whether it's a film like "Sorry Bhai!" or "Inkaar" -- while Chitrangda's performance was appreciated, the titles never made it big at the box office.

Asked if films that are close to 
reality find it hard to gain appreciation from the audience, Chitrangda said: "When it comes to a film like 'Mirch Masala', 'Hazaaron...', 'Mandi' and 'Masoom', more than looking at the commercial success of the film, these are important stories to be shown to the society.

"A commercially successful film that holds a strong entertainment value, may not be an important story, may not be a fragment of reality but that does not mean that the story is not worth telling."

Does projecting reality in a serious manner keep the audience away from watching such films on the big screen?

The "Soorma" producer said: "Maybe... That's true. Maybe that's too much reality to digest on a Friday night! Some films do not earn a lot of money because they are ahead of its time, they are bending the formula of a commercial film. But with time, those films become cult."

In "
Baazaar", Chitrangda worked with Radhika Apte for the first time, and she has good things to say about the "Sacred Games" actress.

"I think she is one of the secure talented actresses who are very non-filmy by nature. I like her because she is real, she is natural. Though we did not have a lot of scenes in the film, it was nice working with her."

"
Baazaar", starring Saif Ali Khan, released on October 26.
