Chitrangada SinghChitrangada Singh plays down comparisons with Smita Patil

Resemblance with Smita Patil is a complement but it is not right to compare me with the legendary actress, says Chitrangada Singh of critically acclaimed 'Hazaaron Khwaishen Aisi'.

"A lot of time people refer to me as another Smita Patil, which of course is a complement. But it's not right to compare me with 'one of the best actresses of all times'. I have done just two movies, so it would be unfair to put me in the same league," says the actress.




"I believe this tag comes with a lot of responsibility and I am still nowhere near her. Still it is a great compliment," the beautiful actress says.

Chitrangada, who is making her comeback from her self declared exile after a gap of almost three years with director Onir 's soon to be released Sorry Bhai in the lead role opposite Sanjay Suri feels that she couldn't have asked for a better comeback than this romantic comedy.

"'Sorry Bhai' is a very different film and a very different concept. It's a romantic and funny movie, different than what I have done earlier as serious cinema," she says.

"Onir made me an offer I simply couldn't refuse. It's very different from what I have done as serious roles," says Chitrangada who also acted in the movie Kal - Yesterday and Tomorrow in 2005.

'Sorry Bhai' is about a happy family - the parents and their two sons. Everyone has his own values in the changing times but they all love one another.

Chitrangada, who quit acting following her marriage to India's golfer Jyoti Randhawa escaped questions about alleged relationship turmoils between them and said it was something personal.

"It was something which has passed away with the time and I don't want to discuss it any more. All I can say is it was all because of bad press my family and me received."

The actress also asked for some time from the industry people to prove her mettle and said she can give some powerful and memorable appearances.

"I always do films, which interest me most and I need to be given a chance to prove myself. Today I see myself associated with good cinema and there is a sudden increase in the level of sensibility these days coming through commercial films," says Chitrangada, who is going to enact the role of Chandramukhi in Sudhir Mishra 's 'Devdas'.

On being asked about reports of her refusal to play lead role opposite Ranbir Kapoor in Aamir Khan production's next venture Delhi Belly , she said something between them didn't work out and there was nothing personal.

"It's got nothing to do with refusing to work with someone. Script was fantastic but something between us didn't work out. It's just about project and nothing personal," says the beautiful actress.
