Chitrangada Singh is finally getting her due for DESI BOYZ. Though she was missing in action for the film's first theatrical promo, she can now be seen much more visible in the second promo that has just been released. While it is pretty much established that Akshay Kumar addressed Deepika Padukone as his bhabhi in the film, it is Chitrangada who entices him with her moves, especially the one where she promises to strip for her.
"Chitrangada is known for her bold image and in each of her films so far, most of them being offbeat, she has come across as a lady who is quite sure about her sexual quotient," says an industry follower, "Whether it is YEH SAALI ZINDAGI, SORRY BHAI or HAZAARON KHWAHISHEN AISI, she has made a definite statement that she is a woman who wants to be on the top. Now even a hardcore commercial affair like DESI BOYZ, she conveys the point quite clearly to Akshay who grabs the offer with both hands."
The sequence is centered on a situation in the film where Chitrangada offers to gradually strip for Akshay provided he gets the right answers for all the questions he is preparing for. However instead of getting into a seductive mode, the sequence has a fun feel to it which is meant to incite laughter amongst audience. CHECK OUT: Akshay and John aren't being 'yo dude' buddies
Says a source, "Even the promo is clearly indicating that there is this naughty banter between Akshay and Chitrangada. DESI BOYZ isn't another AMERICAN PIE in the making where actors would go all the way. Also, despite the on-screen image that Chitrangada has built over the years, she has never indulged into skin show despite what her gestures and mannerisms may suggest."
Director Rohit Dhawan adds, "Even Akshay always caters to family audience and DESI BOYZ isn't going to be any different. Don't expect any adult content here but yes, laughter is definitely guaranteed due to the way this scene is played."
