Chitrangda Singh was the original choice of director Arsala Qureishi and Sabrina Louis, of The Unforgettable. The directors did try to reach out to her, but Chitrangda who had withdrawn into matrimony and parenthood wasn't keen on cinema at that point in time.

Say debutant directors Arsala and Sabrina, "Chitrangda Singh was our original choice. But she was not keen on doing movies at that point of time. Dejected by this, we moved to foreign shores and opted for the stunning Sofia Hayat. Sofia, who just had her autobiography released by Amazon, was more than happy to slide into the role." As things turned out, Arsala had to make some changes to suit Sofia's persona and also make the script sexually explicit to lend strength to the character. It was but obvious that, had she cast Chitrangda, Arsala's script would have had to do without the hot scenes, which are now realised to be integral to the storyline.

The Unforgettable is all set to release in India on the 11th of September 2009. It is an unusual passionate love story that depicts the stark contrasts in individual beliefs, interwoven in a web of romance, mystery, travesty and triumph. The thought provoking concept and aesthetically executed cinematography by W.B. Rao has lent an incredible sensuality to the love story.
