If rumours are true, looks like the buzz about Chitrangada Singh apparently seeking a divorce from her golfer husband Jyoti Randhawa is taking a toll on the actress.
Sources say Chitra has pulled out of a fashion show at the Atlantis, The Palm in Dubai, where she was set to be the showstopper for Indian designer Archana Kochhar. The actress was to walk the ramp on May 27.
An insider says Chitrangada, who is very upset with all the talk about her divorce, has some urgent family issues to attend to at the moment.
A source close to the actress says, “That is why she pulled out of the event. It’s her personal life and it should not be made public.”
While Archana confirms that Chitrangada indeed was scheduled to walk the ramp and that a replacement has now been found, the actress incidentally denies having given her word to appear for the designer’s show.
Says Chitrangada, “There is absolutely no truth to the news that I backed out of the Dubai event. I did not confirm for the event in the first place. Though there was an offer I had never agreed to do it. I was available on that date but it was not something that interested me. No confirmation was made whatsoever.”
Over the past week, the actress’ personal life has come under intense scrutiny. Her joint appearance with her golfer husband of seven years at a Gurgaon court last Friday triggered rumours that the couple had filed for divorce through mutual consent. However on Monday, the 37-year-old star categorically quashed the reports, claiming that they were in court together to settle an internal property dispute.
Chitrangada adds, “We were at the court for the internal settlement of a property issue for which our family and we were in and out of the court the whole day. So the obvious speculation.”
In the meanwhile, Archana tells us, “Chitrangada was approached (for the show) and she was supposed to do it. I have worked with Chitrangada earlier and will take her for our next fashion show.”
