Two projects to finish next year: Chitrangada

Actress Chitragada Singh said that she’s currently working on two projects “Babumoshai Bandookbaaz” and “Band Of Maharajas” and both will get completed next year.

“You should see me next year. There are two projects which will finish this coming year,” said Chitrangada.

“‘Babumoshai Bandookbaaz’ is coming back on track. It was very unfortunate that Nawaz’s (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) dates went a little haywire; of course he’s doing really well which is great,” she added.

The film directed by Kushal Nandy had run into trouble with the local film association when the cast and crew were shooting for the film in Burdwan district of West Bengal in December last year.

Nandy had complained of extortion from the members of the association and also claimed that he had to take help of local police to get Nawazuddin and Chitragada back to Mumbai. The film also stars “Mardaani” baddie Tahir Raj Bhasin.

About the other project, she said: “I’m working on ‘Band Of Maharajas’. It’s about a Pakistani singer called Billo Mumtaz (her character) and it’s about her journey. There’s a lot of presence of Taliban in Pakistan and places like that where a lot of musicians are having a lot of trouble in pursuing (music) because the religion (Islam) doesn’t allow, it basically deals with all that.”

The film has been directed by Girish Malik of “Jal” fame. Popular singer Hans Raj Hans’ son Navraj who’s acted in Punjabi films before, makes his Bollywood debut with the film.
