Bidita Bag: You won't miss Chitrangda Singh...

By HT

New Delhi, Aug. 20 -- For actor Bidita Bag, it was a golden chance to bag the lead role in the upcoming film Babumoshai Bandookbaaz after Chitrangda Singh left the film in the middle of the shoot. 
 
It was reported that she walked out of the project due to differences with director Kushan Nandy, as he had made crass remarks during her intimate scenes with co-star Nawazuddin Siddiqui.
 
"I can promise you that no one will miss Chitrangda. I'm not boasting [about myself] but I add a different kind of flavour to the film," says Bidita, who plays the role of a sensuous cobbler in the film. "You cannot compare the acting. Had she been part of the film, it would have been something different. The director didn't want me to act like [a second] Chitrangda. They wanted somebody different."
 
Bidita, who has also been part of Bengali and Oriya cinema, says she had felt uneasy about doing bold scenes, when she first read the script. "After the shoot began, I was not uncomfortable. I had full faith in the script and director. I knew that even Nawazuddin will not take risks in his career and won't spoil his image by just doing steamy hot scenes. He knows what he is doing," says Bidita.
 
Talking about being typecast as a sensuous actor in the future, the actor adds, "Any sensible director will know that it is a part of the character I am playing. Doing such scenes is not that easy and it requires certain talent as well."
