Chitrangada made a grand debut with the film Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi. Her performance has been critically acclaimed. But her film Sorry Bhai directed by Onir was a damp squib.
Now, Chitrangada is banking on her forthcoming film Yeh Saali Zindagi which is directed by Sudhir Mishra. In the film she plays the character of an ambitious singer who can go to any extent to win her love and do anything for her happiness. It is a grey character that of a woman hopelessly in love and believes that love is blind. Irrfan Khan plays the main lead and Arunoday Singh is the villain.
According to sources, Chitrangada is said to have given an award winning performance.
