When the going gets tough, go to Salman Khan: Chitrangada Singh

salman_chitrangadaWhen the going gets tough, go to Salman Khan. That is what Chitrangada Singh, whose Bollywood career has hit a low, did on Monday.

Salman, who is back from a visit to the US, was in a good mood. The doctors there had given him a clean chit and a happy Salman welcomed the actress into his home.

Heads turned when Chitrangada’s car drove into Salman’s Bandra residence around 12.30 pm. She spent the next two hours with him.

Salman doled out career advice and his little sister Arpita joined them for a tetea-tete in between.

Not so long ago, Mirror had reported the end of Chitrangada’s long-term partnership with Sudhir Mishra (July 3). After launching her in Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi in 2003, the filmmaker and the actress worked together, almost exclusively over the next decade.

Friction set in when Chitrangada signed up for a song-and-dance number in Shirish Kunder’s Joker (2012), which did not go down well with her mentor, who was also not too kicked about her glamorous avatar in Desi Boyz (2011). Their equation bit the dust in May when Chitrangada told Mishra that his interference was making her claustrophobic.

A source close to Chitrangada said: “She wants to do many films now. She is reading quite a few scripts.But she needs advice from well-wishers. And Salman has a good equation with her since she is the ambassador of his brother Sohail Khan’s CCL (Celebrity Cricket League) team.”

A friend of Salman added, “Naturally, they discussed work. Which actress doesn’t want to work with Salman?”
