Chitrangda Breaks Down After Seeing Slashed Role In Sahib Bibi Aur Gangster 3

The aftershocks of the  fiasco that is Sahib Bibi Aur Gangster 3 can be felt all the way to the film’s collapse  a week after  its release.

And  while most critics have commented on the film’s uneven erratic editing,  it has now come to light that the  film was cut in  a particular way  to please one  of  the film’s  two leading ladies.

A  source  very close to the  film spills the beans.“We don’t know what the actually chakkar is. But the director(Tigmanshu Dhulia) seemed  absolutely taken up  with  Mahie Gill’s character in the film. It wouldn’t be wrong to say he focused  on her at the cost of all others, speciallyChitrangda who was the other leading lady opposite Sanjay Dutt.”

Apparently Chitrangda’s role was slashed to a smithereens on  the editing table.

“She was  not shown the film until the last  minute. When  she finally saw it with the cast and crew she was  in tears. She couldn’t believe what was done to her role. Her introductory sequence was knocked off. Her death scene in the climax was  cut. Her Mujra was reduced to half its original length. Chitrangda shot for  nearly 30 days  for Sahib Bibi Gangster .When she saw what remained  of her  role she broke down and  wept ,” says  the source.

One  can understand  Chitrangda’s angst. For  nearly three years she has been  out of circulation. Her attempts at a  comeback in Kushan Nandy’s  Babumoshai Bandookbaaz had ended in a  fiasco . She was  now looking forward to making a powerful impact  in  Sahib Bibi Aur Gangster 3opposite Sanjay Dutt.

Sadly her role was  slashed , apparently to please the other leading lady. In  the process poor Dutt’s role also  got slashed.

 The  result was  for all to see. If Sahib Bibi Aur Gangster looks like  a royal mess it’s because the director allowed  his heart to  rule  his better judgement.
