Richa Chadha: Call­ing an adult film star a porn star is a sign of pa­tri­archy

Asian Journal - - WORLD -

Ac­tor Richa Chadha, who es­says south In­dian film ac­tor Sha­keela in a biopic of that name, says be­ing dis­re­spect­ful to­wards any suc­cess­ful adult film star and tag­ging her as a “porn star” is a sign of a hyp­o­crit­i­cal and pa­tri­ar­chal so­ci­ety. “Call­ing an adult (film) star a porn star is a sign of pa­tri­archy. You are dis­re­spect­ing an ac­tress (Sha­keela in this case) who is part of films that are adult in theme. And then you are watch­ing them so much that those films are mak­ing huge money. What kind of hypocrisy is that,” Richa told IANS in an in­ter­view on the set of the biopic Sha­keela here.
