Her tantrums as Bholi Punjaban in Fukrey or as sister-in-law of Aishwarya in Sarabjit, have won her rave reviews.
Check out some of the roles of Richa Chadha that define her as powerful actor…
Bholi Punjaban in Fukrey and Fukrey Returns
Richa was recently seen as Bholi Punjaban in Fukrey Returns. This is the second Fukrey film and has got good response on the box office, earning more than Rs 50 crore. Bholi once again stood out as the don in the film. Her eccentric character is so far among her more popular ones.
In 2015, Chadha made her debut in a leading role with the drama Masaan, playing a girl caught after indulging in casual sex. The film got a ‘standing ovation’ when screened at the Cannes film festival.
Cabaret is an Indian romantic dance film which is based on dance. Richa is seen in a bold avatar as a dancer. However, speculation is rife that the film is inspired by Helen’s life.
In 2016, Richa was seen in the biopic Sarbjit, where she essayed the role of Sukhpreet Kaur, Sarbjit’s wife. While the film didn’t do so well at the box office and received mixed reviews from critics, Richa’s performance was appreciated and garnered her a second Filmfare nomination for Best Supporting Actress.
Goliyon Ki Rasleela- Ramleela
He was awesome in her Rajasthani look in Goliyon Ki Rasleela- Ramleela. The film with Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone in the lead roles had Richa playing the role of sister-in-law of Deepika in the Sanjay Leela Bhansali film.
Gangs Of Wasseypur
Her major breakthrough was a supporting role in the gangster saga tittle “Gangs of Wasseypur”, 4 years after her debut movie. Her role as the aggressive and extremely foul-tongued wife of a gangster earned her a Filmfare award.
Jia Aur Jia
Like in most films of this genre, the road-trip in Jia aur Jia is a metaphor for a journey of self-discovery. Kalki Koechlin is free-spirited Jia Grewal, and Richa Chadda is uptight Jia Venkatram. Kalki and Richa are really good off screen buddies and they are often addressed as the best of bestie in town.
