Bet­ter roles be­ing writ­ten for ac­tresses: Richa Chadha

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Front Page -

Gangs of Wassey­pur ac­tor Richa Chadha (above) feels that Bol­ly­wood is a good place for fe­male ac­tors right now as there are bet­ter roles be­ing writ­ten for them. Richa, who will be seen in debu­tant Neeraj Ghay­wan’s Cannes-ac­claimed Masaan, said that the in­dus­try and the au­di­ence have be­come more re­cep­tive to ac­tresses, es­pe­cially in lead roles. “It is a good time for fe­male ac­tors be­cause there is greater ac­cept­abil­ity. I also feel meaty roles are be­ing writ­ten for ac­tresses. I loved Queen, NH10 and Piku... Great roles for women are there right now,” she said.

Richa, 26, is happy to be a part of Masaan, whose story is set in Varanasi, as she feels that it is time films utilised mod­est back­drops. “It is about time films with real char­ac­ters and mod­est set­tings got made be­cause in the past we have seen movies set in for­eign lo­ca­tions and big cities... Now it is time to see the more rooted sto­ries,” she said.

The Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye! ac­tor says that she can­not star in any movie if her char­ac­ter does not make sense to her. “I will do a big bud­get film pro­vided my role is sub­stan­tial be­cause I have to have fun do­ing a movie, I have to make sense. I am fairly se­lec­tive.You will be see­ing a lot more of me now, but ev­ery film has its des­tiny. I have done some films which are yet to re­lease,” she said.
