Bollywood actress Chitrangada Singh, whose Bollywood career has hit a low, sought advice from Salman Khan recently. Salman, who is back from a visit to the US, welcomed the actress into his home. She spent two hours with him.
Salman doled out career advice and his little sister Arpita joined them for a tetea-tete in between. Chitrangada's long-term partnership with Sudhir Mishra (July 3). After launching her in “Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi” in 2003, Sudhir Mishra 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 happy 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.
Having lost her mentor, Chitrangada has now turned to Salman.
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?"
