Published: 14th June 2017

Actress Richa Chadha, who is known for portraying bold characters in films like Gangs of Wasseypur and Masaan, says that women are trolled all the time irrespective of the time and situation. Dangal famed actress Fatima Sana Shaikh has been shamed for posting a picture of herself in a bikini in the month of Ramadan on a social networking site.

When asked about this controversy, Richa said, "I am not aware of this controversy but, I feel that if she was an athlete or swimmer, who had posted her picture, then also people would have a problem with it. Women are trolled all the time, it is not because it's the holy month of Ramadan or anything. Even on any other normal day if she would have put picture like this, then also there would have been horrible comments." 

Richa further added, "People can only comment on things, so it shouldn't matter much. I don't think it is something to be discussed also and media people should also be aware of that."

When Richa was asked about the importance of looking presentable and good, she said, "As an actor, it is important because it is visual medium and people look at your beauty, hair and fashion. I try to be as natural as possible, and on regular days, I don’t wear makeup."

Her next film is Fukrey Returns, which she said is in the editing stage and will release in December. Fukrey Returns is directed by Mrighdep Singh Lamba. It also stars Pulkit Samrat, Ali Fazal, Varun Sharma,Vishakha Singh and Priya Anand.
