Dusky diva Chitrangada Singh walks out of the film Babumoshai Bandookbaaz when director Kushan Nandy directed her to do an intimate scene with co-star Nawazuddin Siddiqui.
Looks like it’s no easy job to do an intimate scene, especially when it comes to directors such as Kushan Nandy. Rumour has it that the actress Chitrangada Singh has had a traumatic and scarring time while shooting for his film Babumoshai Bandookbaaz since the past few days till she could finally take it no more.
Let’s have a look at the circulation regarding the Chitrangada-Nawaz intimate scene and everything that followed:
Sources reveal: “Kushan got a bit too engaged in the scene in question, which required Nawaz to only pull Chitrangda roughly on the bed and realise that someone is watching them. Kushan was not happy with the first take. He thundered: Chitrangda, you ought to get literally on top of Nawaz.”
The actress went into a state of shock and couldn’t believe what she had heard. She had to pinch herself if she had heard it right.
The source further adds, “Chitrangda 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, Chitrangda 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, one of Kushan’s close friend says, “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. Chitrangda 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.”
Rumour also has it that being the gentleman that Nawaz is, he intervened- but Kushan was not convinced.
Chitrangda completed the shot in 3 takes and left the set in tears. After that, she had a long chat with Nawaz and informed him that she is quitting the film.
Now in an interview with Spotboye, Chitrangada revealed: “We finished the shot and Kushan said that he didn’t like it. He wanted me to lie on top of Nawaz. Now let me tell you that I was wearing a petticoat for that scene. I turned around to tell Kushan about my predicament. I told him: ‘Ho toh gaya. Kyun kar raha hai aise? Please try to understand that I am wearing a petticoat. But, he was in no mood to listen and we ended up having a big, loud argument. And wait till you hear this! A few minutes later he went and told Nawaz that we had shot the intimate scene very well! Can you beat that?”
She also spoke about her conversation with her co-star Nawazuddin, who told her that the director was already in search of a replacement for her. “Nawaz and I sat down for a long chat till 4.30 am. He said that Kushan had been telling him that he’ll get some other heroine. Frankly, Nawaz was quite bewildered,” said the actress.
She further added that she was asked to shoot the scene in consideration ‘again and again and again.’ “Yes. And he said that I should do it bindaas. What is a bindaas woman? One who wears a petticoat and jumps on a man? Kushan argued that my character in the film is that of a poor woman who goes a tad wild. Does being wild mean that she will start humping her man every time she sees him?,” she told the webloid.
Chirangada also mentioned that the film’s co-producer Kiran Shyam also ‘interfered’ on the sets. “We had already shot a montage where Kushan wanted me to do something similar. Nawaz and I had also kissed in that montage, and now Kushan wanted a 7-second kiss in the intimate scene. Even Nawaz told him ‘Kiss kiya toh hai, ab kya chahiye Kushan?’ Kiran interfered and I turned around to tell her: Who are you to explain my scene to me? That woman decided almost everything on the set, even the nose ring that I wore. She takes the final call on clothes too. She interfered in the intimate scene and said that she wants a long smooch between Nawaz and me. I couldn’t take it lying down and I questioned them that who’s the director: Kushan or Kiran? Kushan became embarrassed and asked her to leave. She is mighty pissed with me, I guess,” the actress said.
She told Spotboye: “Nawaz called me when I was headed to the airport. He asked me to return. And do you know what I told him? I told him: Speak to Kushan and if he sees my viewpoint, I am still 30 minutes away from the airport and ready to come back. But Kushan did not revert.”
Babumoshai Bandookbaaz also stars Tahir Raj Bhasin, Roopa Ganguly and Prosenjit Chatterjee while Chitrangda’s replacement has still not been found.
