For 'Pehle Aap Janab', Chitrangda is again teaming up with her mentor Sudhir Mishra, The duo have worked together on 'Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi', 'Yeh Saali Zindagi' and 'Inkaar' in the past. The actress calls him "genius of improvisation".
"His scripts are very different from the end results. he is one person whose characters in the films have loads of interesting realities attached to them. His character has an honesty and most importantly he always portray women in a powerful light in his films," she said.
Mishra's last release 'Inkaar' dealt with sexual harassment faced by women in corporate set-up. Asked what she feels about Tarun Tejpal issue, she said, "I don't know what exactly happened in Tarun Tejpal's case. I just want to say that whenever there is a powerplay by men there will always be issues like sexual harassment." Chitrangda walked the ramp for Azva at the ongoing India Bridal Fashion Week in Mumbai.
She graced the runway as a modern bride in fashion designer Tarun Tahilian's red lehenga. Her walk on the ramp as a bride brought the memories of her marriage back with Indian golfer Jyoti Randhawa.
"It reminded me of my marriage. I was very anxious the whole day but the moment slipped off quickly. But today, I am feeling very different as the outfit is specially carved for a modern bride. My whole look was designed by my friend Tarun," she said.
