Producing films is daunting for Richa Chadha


Actress Richa Chadha, who ventured into film production with the Punjabi short film titled “Khoon Aali Chithi”, says it’s more daunting than acting. Richa ventured into production in early 2016 and is gearing up for the film’s release next month. The film is about terrorism and state brutality in the late 1980s and early 1990s, and how common people were caught in the Khalistan movement.

Asked what’s more daunting – being an actor or producer, Richa told IANS “To me, it’s being a producer… Because I just produced a Punjabi short film and we are still grappling with some stuff and I worry how people make whole movies.”

On the acting bit, Richa will next be seen in the second instalment of “Fukrey”. She will be seen reprising the role of Bholi Punjaban in the film which also stars Pulkit Samrat, Varun Sharma, Ali Fazal and Manjot Singh. The actress also has “Love Sonia” in her kitty. The film is directed by Tabrez Noorani.
