The trailer launch of ac­tor Richa Chadha’s (far left) up­com­ing film cre­ated a lot of buzz af­ter the ac­tor kissed her co-star Ran­deep Hooda (left) on stage. How­ever, Richa says that the two never kissed, but just pre­tended, as they wanted to give a sneak peak into the sub­ject of the film.

“This was never the plan. I never kissed him on stage. It just looked like we were kiss­ing. We were in our char­ac­ters and it was just to show the au­di­ence a lit­tle bit of what the film is all about. We never thought that peo­ple would ac­tu­ally be­lieve that we kissed. But I can’t say that I am sur­prised at their re­ac­tion,” she says.

The ac­tor, who will next be seen in Pooja Bhatt’s pro­duc­tion, has been jug­gling mul­ti­ple projects for some time now, but she is not com­plain­ing. “You have to mul­ti­task. In Hol­ly­wood, ac­tors do one film in a year, but here we have to jug­gle. I felt over­whelmed dur­ing the pro­mo­tions oof my last film — Masaan, but then I went along with it. You don’t re­alise it at the time, but later on you think about what all you had to do,” says RRicha, who took a break af­ter the film re­leased.

“I went trav­el­ling abroad. I was happy to bbe in a place where no one knew me and where I could visit places, sit in cafes and do every­thing that I wanted to do,” she says, aadding, “I am a worka­holic and nor­mally I never take time off. But, af­ter Masaan, I re­alised that I just had to. To re­lax, I of­ten mmed­i­tate,” she says.
