Her choice of films and roles have earned her the ‘bold’ tag in Bollywood but actress Chitrangada Singh feels she is real and much more subtle than other heroines. “I don't think I am bold. It is not the right word. I am not physically bold, but very strong headed. I am not a 'sati savitri.’ There are lot more bold scenes in other films done by other actresses. But I am very proud of my choices," said the 36-year-old actress, who made a successful debut with the critically acclaimed film "Hazaaron Khwaishen Aisi" in 2003 and followed it up with other off-beat films like "Kal: Yesterday and Tomorrow," “Sorry Bhai" and "Yeh Saali Zindagi."

However, Singh says she is concerned about being typecast by some directors. ”Having a particular image does bother me. I hate being boxed and have others thinking I can only be a part of certain kinds of films and do particular roles. I want to do everything and I am happy that there are good directors who are giving me something different," she said. Singh officially forayed into commercial cinema with Rohit Dhawan's "Desi Boyz" opposite Akshay Kumar in 2011 and then followed it up with an item number in Shirish Kunder's "Joker" last year. Now, the actress has reunited with director Sudhir Mishra for the third time — after "Hazaaron Khwaishen Aisi" and "Yeh Saali Zindagi" — for her upcoming film "Inkaar," which deals with the issue of sexual harassment at a workplace. ”When he (Mishra) came up with this film, I was very drawn towards the character. She is so powerful, equal, vulnerable and a very real girl," said Singh, who plays the character of a creative director of an advertising agency, who files a case of sexual harassment against her boss, played by Arjun Rampal.
