Chitrangda shares, "My mom told me about the army hospital where I was born and even remembers the room number. I saw the place and it felt special. Then, I also got to know that I had almost been named Jodhabai. According to my mother, the lady who was looking after me at the time had taken to calling me Jodhabai. Thank God mom didn't go by her suggestion."

On her upcoming film, the 'Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi' actress says "We are staying in a 300-year-old fort and there's so much history here. It's a different world altogether. I play a Rajasthani girl in the film and that shows in my outfits and the way I speak. The look is not urban so we had to work on the costumes carefully. I also had to take some dance lessons as part of my prep to get the traditional moves right," unveiling details. The beauty is currently shooting in Bikaner for 'Saheb Biwi Gangster 3' in September. Talking about her happiness of reuniting with Tigmanshu, Citrangda also said, "Tigmanshu and I were supposed to work together way back in 1997, when he was making his first film, Haasil. Somehow, that didn't work out. If it had, it would have probably been my first film instead of Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi. Today, neither of us recalls why the collaboration didn't work out then. Tigamanshu is extremely edgy and I like his style of filmmaking."
