Chitrangada Singh who has lost a lot of weight, and is looking fit and healthy is all set to start shooting for Kushan Nandy’s Babumushai Bandookbaaz. The actress will be flying to West Bengal, and will be stationed there for almost a month to shoot for the action thriller in which she is playing a cobbler. Her co-star Nawazuddin Siddiqui will play a contract killer and Tahir Raj Bhasin of Mardaani fame also plays one of the principal characters in the film.
“I am leaving on the 10th of this month and will be there till January 8,” said Singh about the project, for which she has learnt how to mend footwear, and will be seen in a deglam avatar.
Meanwhile the actress is also in the process of setting up her production house under which she will make a biopic on renowned field hockey player Sandeep Singh, and ex-captain of the Indian hockey team. It was under his captaincy that the Indian team managed to clinch the Sultan Azlan Shah Cup in 2009, after defeating Malaysia in the finals. India won the title after 13 years, and Singh was also the top goal scorer in the tournament What makes the hockey player’s story inspirational is that, three years before that win, he was seriously injured after being accidentally shot in a train, while on his way to join the national team who were about to leave for the World Cup in Germany. He was almost paralysed and was on a wheelchair for two years. Singh not only recovered from the serious injury, but also consolidated his position again in the team.”There is time as the script is still being developed. It will be a biopic, and other things like getting another producer on board etc are being worked out,” said the actress who feels that sports is a good way to keep fit, and is presently into kickboxing.
