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