Gangs of Wasseypur actor Richa Chadha knocked it out of the park with her last outing Section 375. Known to do diverse roles, the starlet has now revealed the character she will be playing in the upcoming Anubhav Sinha project Abhi Toh Party Shuru Hui Hai. The project is being called a black comedy and will feature Richa in a never-seen-before avatar – a commercial sex worker. Speaking about it, she told IANS, "I'm doing all sorts of roles now. These are going I explore all facets of my personality. I'm doing this comedy part for a movie with Anubhav Sinha. I play a character called Softie who has a lisp in her talk."
Richa continued, "After Section 375, I am glad that the next film people will see me in will be so different. Anubhav Sinha's next Abhi to Party Shuru Hui Hai, where I play this crazy character called Softie! Comedy is my favourite genre and I thoroughly enjoy it. In fact, have been actively trying to do more in the comic space, which is why I dived headfirst into stand up for a special show as well."
Richa will also be seen in Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari's sports drama Panga. She revealed how she feels mainstream cinema and social media tend to scrutinise female stars more than male stars at times. Talking about the same, she stated, “Mainstream media, as well as social media, tends to be unfair towards female stars, and female stars get trolled and criticised more than their male counterparts. I can say this from my observation of the way media constantly questions Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Swara Bhaskar, Sonam Kapoor and other female stars for their choices – whether it is fashion, political opinion or lifestyle. Do they question the male stars enough as well?" We’re excited for her upcoming role!
