Richa Chadha turns feature film producer with teen love story
On the acting front, Richa will be seen in an upcoming biopic on southern adult star, Shakeela. She is also a part of Ashwini Iyer Tiwari’s upcoming film, Panga
Actor-turned-producer Richa Chadha has greenlit an upcoming teen love story as her first independent feature film production. The yet-to-be-titled film will be directed by US-based filmmaker, Shuchi Talati. Richa had previously presented the short film, Khon Aali Chithi, as an independent producer.
Speaking about venturing into film production, Richa says, “In today's day and age, actors are moving towards producing content by themselves in a serious way. An actor isn't bound to just acting in front of the screen — given the space and opportunity that there is today, an actor can write, direct, produce and much more. There are so many great examples of actors who are both successful in front of the screen, but are also pioneering and championing content as producers, writers and directors.”
Richa and Shuchi studied in the same college in Mumbai and are excited to rekindle their friendship with their new association. “I was glad that Shuchi asked me to produce this feature for her, as it has given me an opportunity to commence my little venture. We are in the process of finishing formalities for the name of the venture amongst other things, but I am glad my first feature will be with a dear friend.”
On the acting front, Richa will be seen in an upcoming biopic on southern adult star, Shakeela. She is also a part of Ashwini Iyer Tiwari’s upcoming film, Panga, which co-stars Kangana Ranaut and Pankaj Tripathi.
