Actress-turned-producer Chitrangda Singh, gearing up for the release of her forthcoming production ‘Soorma’, says she feels a sense of pride in being an Indian. On Wednesday, Chitrangda interacted with the media on the sidelines of the fifth edition of NRI of the Year Awards ceremony hosted by ICICI Bank and Times Now. In a statement to IANS, the actress said, “My basic identity is of an Indian. Wherever I travel, people recognise me with face and skin colour that I am an Indian, so it feels really proud.”
She further added, “My father served in the Indian Army, so that patriotic feeling towards the country is much stronger. I think we all are very proud of living in India and we have so many reasons to feel proud about it.” Chitrangda was among known names like Mandira Bedi, Samir Kochhar, Union Minister of State for Home Affairs Kiren Rijiju, Indian football team skipper Sunil Chhetri and Akriti Kakkar, who attended the event here.
Helmed by Shaad Ali, ‘Soorma’, is based on the life of former Indian hockey team skipper Sandeep Singh. Talking about the film, Chitrangda said, “I am just praying that people like our film and I am feeling really nervous. I have never felt so nervous in my life.” The film is slated to release on July 13, 2018. Watch this space for further updates.
