Bollywood actress Richa Chadha showed her disregard towards the inequality prevalent in the Indian society.
As a nation, we want 4G and 5G, but we don’t want women to have the same rights as men and we don’t want all communities and castes to have same rights as othersRicha Chadha
In an exclusive talk with Hindustan Times, Richa Chadha expressed her discomfort in sharing the details of her personal love life and also holds Indian society responsible for her being tight-lipped. “The way it goes, even if I was (seeing someone) I wouldn’t be able to tell you.”
She thinks Indians are way too judgmental especially when it comes to women, which prevents her from disclosing her private life.
“I am sure that if I were somewhere else [other than India], I would probably be a lot more open. So, for the practical purpose of leading my life peacefully, I don’t say anything about my personal life because it is a waste of time,” says Richa.
Richa also agrees that small films do not receive enough attention like that of the big budget flicks. “We have a lot of systematic problems which kill small films. Like films don’t get the number of shows they should. They already have very limited number of slots. So, if you are playing Masaan once at 9pm in the night and another show at 11am, they will not pull the crowds in normal days because people are working. In small cities, the problem is that there are no screens at all, because single screen were shut down,” she says.
Richa presently works for web series and has received applause for her work at international film festivals.
