Mumbai: It was just recently that Chitrangda Singh walked out of Kushan Nandy's 'Babumoshai Bandookbaaz' also starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui, claiming that he used crass language while shooting a scene.
According to reports, it all started when Kushan asked her to do an intimate sequence but he was not happy with the first take. He then thundered, “Chitrangada, you ought to get literally on top of Nawaz. Tange ragdo and s*x karo.” The actress, who was totally taken aback by his behaviour, ended up having a huge showdown with him.
Her co-star Nawazuddin who had maintained silence about the entire incident has spoken up about the controversy. In an interview to DNA, Nawazuddin said, “We did a normal scene. There was nothing unacceptable about what we shot. The incident being described did not happen. Kushan is a decent softspoken person. He’s a gentleman, incapable of crass behaviour.”
Kushan said, “Those who know me will know I never use filthy words like she has accused me of using. I don’t know people who use language like that. This is character assassination.”
The long-in-the-making film had gone on the floors earlier this month in Lucknow. The team had earlier shot portions of the film in December 2014 in Kolkata, Bolpur and Burdwan in West Bengal. The shoot was, however, affected due to alleged trouble with local technicians and non-payment of dues. They soon started a new project and scrapped whatever was shot earlier.
Apparently, Nawazuddin's 'Gangs of Wasseypur' co-star Richa Chadha is likely to step into Chitrangada's shoes....
