Working as hard as my first film: Chitrangada Singh

Mumbai, Feb 24 (IANS) Actress Chitrangada Singh, who has been part of films like "Hazaaron Khwaishen Aisi", "Yeh Saali Zindagi" and "Inkaar", says she works as hard in her films as she did in her debut project.

"The level of effort in any film doesn't change. We make the same level of effort for our first as well as 10th film. The way you make the effort changes... I am just working as hard as I did in my first film," said Chitrangada, who has been in the industry for eight years now.

Chitrangada made her Bollywood debut with "Hazaaron Khwaishen Aisi" and was later seen in films like "Sorry Bhai!", "Yeh Saali Zindagi", "Desi Boyz" and "Inkaar".

"I think there has to be something different in the script. Also, the director makes a lot of difference to me," said the actress, who is married to golfer Jyoti Singh Randhwa.

Asked how she manages time for her family between shooting and other activities, Chitrangada said: "I just somehow do it all."

After doing some offbeat films, Chitrangada entered the commercial films zone with "Desi Boyz" and will now be seen in "I Me Aur Main". Directed by Kapil Sharma, the film also features John Abraham, who was her co-star in "Desi Boyz" too.

Talking about her relationship with the actor, she said: "I knew John a little bit from 'Desi Boyz' initially. I know him a lot more now. He is a great guy and makes people feel comfortable around him."

On the professional front, Chitrangada says she will be part of two more commercial films this year.
