The film was a moderate box office success but it was widely praised by critics. In 2005 she starred in Kal: Yesterday and Tomorrow.

Childhood and Education

Chitrangda Singh’s Childhood

Chitrangda Singh is well-known for her military background. The actress grew up in different parts of the country because her father was in the army and she credits her mother with raising her and her brother while their father was away at work. Chitrangda Singh was born in Jodhpur Rajasthan and spent her formative years there as well as in Kota Rajasthan Bareilly and Meerut Uttar Pradesh. 

Chitrangda Singh's father Col. Niranjan Singh an ex-Indian Army officer with a transferable job was stationed in the latter city. Digvijay Singh Chahal her brother plays golf. She attended Sophia Girls' School in Meerut for her formal education before graduating from Lady Irwin College in New Delhi with a degree in home science in food and nutrition.

Family

Chitrangda Singh Family

Chitrangda Singh’s father is Niranjan Singh. Niranjan Singh is a retired army officer who has worked as a Colonel in the army. Chitrangda Singh has one sibling Digvijay Singh. Digvijay Singh is an Indian professional golfer who competes on the Professional Golf Tour of India and the Asian Tour. 

Chitrangda Singh’s Dad was in the army so we were constantly on the move depending on where he was posted. My mother deserves credit for making the process of moving homes appear simple. For army wives moving is a huge responsibility. My mother would pack the entire house except for the kitchen which she did last. She would unwrap and set up the kitchen first when we moved into our new apartment. It used to take a long time for furniture to arrive. So my mother would place pillows and bed sheets on the unpacked boxes to create a sofa.

Boyfriend and Affairs

Jyoti Singh Randhawa

From 2001 to 2014 Jyoti Randhawa was married to actress Chitrangda Singh. They also have a son named Zorawar. Chitrangda and Jyoti's fathers both served in the Indian Army. The first time I saw her was when I went to her house; she was in class 8 at the time and I was in my final year of school the golfer explained in an interview with a website. However romance blossomed after Chitrangda relocated to Delhi. They relocated because Jyoti's father was stationed in the same city. The couple married in 2001 after a five-year courtship.

‘It used to bother me initially that we weren't together as much as we used to be ’ Jyoti said in an interview. The golfer continued ‘I really miss her. Without the woman of the house the house feels empty’. Chitrangda and Jyoti divorced a few months later in 2014 with the actress receiving primary custody of their son. She recently told a leading daily that being a single mother was not easy. Raising a child as a single parent is difficult. However society is no longer dismissive of it. Divorce and single parenthood have become the norm She stated.

Sudhir Mishra

Sudhir Mishra was allegedly arrested for causing a schism between the couple. Sudhir Mishra who gave Chitrangda her first role in Hazaaron Khwaishen Aisi was close to her and served as her industry mentor. Their relationship appeared to be more than just professional bonding due to their frequent outings together. Several news outlets even claimed that the director and actress are addicted to each other. So was there any connection between this alleged link-up and the alleged divorce Chitrangda Singh is said to have wanted to explore her options in Bollywood? Chitrangda has appeared in films such as Hazaaron Khwaishein Aisi Sorry Bhai! Yeh Saali Zindagi Desi Boyz and Joker. But it appears that juggling marriage and work was difficult for Chitrangda especially since she lives in Gurgaon rather than Mumbai. ‘I love cinema it completes me ’ the actress once said in an interview with Mumbai Mirror.

Struggles

Chitrangda Singh’s Struggles

Chitrangda Singh revealed in an interview with the Bombay Times that she faced bias not only as a child but also professionally as she was passed over for modelling assignments. For the uninitiated the actress posted an Instagram story in which she described herself as brown and happy. In response to the existence of skin-color prejudices Chitrangda Singh stated that not everyone goes out looking for white-skinned people. 


I did lose out on modelling assignments because of my skin colour Chitrangda said of losing work because of her skin colour. In fact when I lost out on one ad early in my career I was told specifically why because it came down to choosing between two people for the part. 


Fortunately Gulzar Saab saw an audition I did for a product and hired me for his music video. I realized that not everyone here goes out looking for white people. Chitrangda Singh stated in one of her interviews ‘I understand how it feels to be a girl with a dusky complexion. This is not something that people will say to you directly. It's only a feeling. I have experienced biases particularly while growing up in the north.’
