Okay, so it is a known fact by now that Chitrangda Singh has been roped in to do a special song and dance number for Shirish Kunder directed Joker. Though this development made quite a few stand up and notice, more so because no one could see this coming, the fact remains that even for Chitrangda this was a surprise no less. For everyone though, the surprise turned out to be a pleasant one since it is the best birthday gift that Chitrangda has earned for herself ever since she stepped into the world of films few years back.
Says a friend of the actress, "Joker releases on 30th August next year and that happens to be Chitrangda's birthday too. The 'item song' that she has managed to bag for herself is a birthday gift for her and a matter of double celebration. Since she hasn't done an item song before and this is the first time ever that she has been roped in for a guest appearance like this, Chitrangda is really elated."
In fact as we go to press, the song has already been shot, canned and sealed, hence turning out to be a huge calling card for Chitrangda who seems to be fast making her presence felt in commercial Bollywood cinema.
"Her Desi Boyz is round the corner and there too she has done a song and dance number with Akshay", says a source, "In fact this film is her first ever out and out commercial film and her naughty-n-spicy scenes with Akshay have already attracted quite a few eyeballs. Now with Joker too in her kitty, albeit just for a song and dance appearance, Chitrangda is making her intentions quite clear that she is ready for the 'jhatak-matak' act."
While one waits to see whether the 'Kaafirana' number in Joker turns out to be the 'Sheila'/'Munni'/'Chammak Challo' moment for Chitrangda, the makers (Shirish as well as film's choreographer/producer Farah Khan) are confident that they have managed to create something special for her.
"When it is someone's birthday, you are bound to make it extra special; especially so by gifting a person something that she would be thrilled to own", says Shirish, "Farah has gone all out to make Chitrangda's first ever item number special while for me too it is now an added advantage to have someone in addition to Sonakshi adding on to the glamour quotient of the film. With Chitrangda's birthday falling on 30th August, the D-day is special for both of us now."
