Chitrangda turns playback singer

Shirish Kunder’s Joker will not only see Chitrangda Singh debut as an item girl. The actress will also make her playback singing debut with the film. When contacted, the director confirmed that the actress would indeed be lending her voice for a song in the film.

According to a source close to the venture, along with Chitrangda’s item number Kaafirana, another song that was ‘leaked’ online, became the talking point of the film. The song I Want Fakht You became viral online and its popularity made the filmmakers think.

Shirish was very keen on acquiring a U certificate for the trailer of his film. When the censor board objected to the word ‘fakht’ in the song, they changed it to ‘just’. But the song had already become pretty famous. So, Shirish decided to make a remix version of the song

said the source.

And that’s how Chitrangda came into the picture. The actress will now record portions of the song originally voiced by Sunidhi Chauhan for the remix. In fact, she will record her first song within a couple of days, revealed the source.
