Even before the release of their first film together, the sizzling chemistry between co-actors Arjun Rampal and Chitrangda Singh seems to be hitting home with their fans. Not only have the two been getting a positive response at live events that the two are attending together, but even their recently launched digital calendar featuring the leading jodi of Inkaar has become an instant hit.
According to sources — the sizzling calendar that talks about men’s point of view versus women’s point of view — registered more than 1,44,000 people downloading within 24 hours of its release.
Meanwhile, an insider has revealed that parts of the film have been inspired by director Sudhir Mishra’s real life. "Most of Sudhir’s films have been inspired by real-life incidents. But in Inkaar there are shades from Sudhir’s own life. The story of the film is about the discovery of a new talent, how Arjun Rampal’s character grooms Chitrangda and shapes her to become the creative director of an advertising agency.
And once she gets groomed she chooses to take her decisions. This angle of the creator and the muse is to a large extent inpsired by Sudhir and Chitrangda. Though the film then goes on to be played out as a courtroom drama, the premise of the story as far as the mentor and the muse is concerned echoes with that of Sudhir and Chitrangda," reveals the source.
Sudhir says, "The roles of women I write are slightly mysterious and they are women who will never totally belong to you, yet are feminine and attractive. Chitrangda personifies that for me and I don’t have to convince her as she just comes and plays it. She is quite strong-willed. For me, she is an actor and as an actor I find her interesting. I like the fact that she is somewhere else and she comes and works well with me."
