"Neither am I trying to change my image nor going to fit in anything. I think one just gets put into a box in which one has to live and be comfortable in it. I am just trying to do something out-of-the-box. It is a chance and risk that you take," Chitrangada said in an interview.
Known for portraying serious roles, the 36-year-old surprised the audience when she first opted for a glamorous role in "Desi Boyz".
"Sometimes you may just fall flat on your face. But I think it is worth taking a risk of what you can do and what you can't," the dusky beauty said.
She also admits that she had never imagined that she will be doing an item song.
"I had never thought I would ever do an item song as such and that this would ever happen to me. I think song and dance has always been an integral part of our films. And Indians enjoy it a lot," she said.
Chitrangada said for the rustic song she looked up to dancing diva Madhuri Dixit for inspiration.
"Madhuri is the item girl I look up to. My whole reference point for this song is Madhuri. When I was getting ready for the song I was very excited but when I reached the on the sets and saw the scale at which they were going to shoot it, I got nervous. But overall it was overwhelming," she said. (MORE)
