Hindustan Times (Gurugram) - City - - LIFESTYLE - Yashika Mathur yashika.mathur@htlive.com

Ac­tor Richa Chadha played the role of a sex worker in her last film, Love So­nia, which high­lights the is­sue of global sex traf­fick­ing. While she is happy that the film has cre­ated a strong im­pact on the minds of peo­ple, the in-depth re­search about sex traf­fick­ing, es­pe­cially in In­dia, deeply moved her. Thus, the ac­tor has de­cided to talk about the is­sue on global plat­forms.

Richa will head to the United Na­tions (UN) to dis­cuss the me­nace which af­fects women across the globe. She has also been in­vited to seven plat­forms to talk about the sub­ject, in­clud­ing a sum­mit in Sin­ga­pore and Los An­ge­les (USA).

“So many peo­ple have re­lated to the film. It’s great to know that the mes­sage is be­ing spread out to so many peo­ple. I’m ec­static for the film to have reached the au­di­ences in the right way. And be­ing in­vited by such im­por­tant fo­rums, that have an in­ter­na­tional au­di­ence, to dis­cuss about such a cause and women em­pow­er­ment in gen­eral, is a great feel­ing,” says Richa.

She adds, “It gives me an op­por­tu­nity as an ac­tor to be a part of a global con­ver­sa­tion and to ex­change thoughts and ideas with so many peo­ple who are do­ing so much for the bet­ter­ment of women and girl rights.”
