Richa Chadha, a well-known Bollywood actress known for her forthright and outspoken nature, recently wrote about the realities of the “imaginary” Bollywood. On Tuesday, the ‘Madam Chief Minister‘ actor wrote a write-up on her Instagram Story, highlighting the harmful things that can be deceived into doing in the film industry.
Richa Chadha Opens Up About Bollywood
Richa related her experience when she was naive and others took advantage of her without naming names.
“Bollywood,’ a make-believe address halfway between Bandra and Goregaon. When people need you to do something bad for you, your health, or your job. They will tell you how beneficial it is for you and want you to believe them. When I was naive, I used to believe them,” she wrote.
Richa also called out some “press peeps” for their hypocrisy when it comes to nepotism in the profession. “On the pretext of ‘freedom of expression,’ some press peeps would write long pieces about how nepotism damages the industry while creepily following any pre-pubescent with a renowned last name and dissing every self-made professional in their terrible writing,” she continued.
Richa concluded her message with a statement that seemed more akin to a warning. “If it is to withstand the onslaught of OTT, VR, and everything else in the future, it must reform faster. Please take a whiff of the coffee,” she put her signature on the document.
‘Girls Will Be Girls,’ their first picture as producers, is planned to be directed by Suchi Talati. The next film will be set in an elite boarding school in a small Himalayan hill town in northern India. It will tell the story of a 16-year-old girl whose rebellious coming-of-age is hijacked by her mother. She never had the opportunity to do so.
In terms of acting, Richa and Ali will reunite in ‘Fukrey 3’ for the third time.
