‘Films need not have social issues’
Actor Richa Chadha (right), who has worked in films like Sarbjit (2015) and Masaan (2015), says filmmakers should not be burdened with the responsibility of making films based on social issues all the time.
Richa says, “I am happy that films are talking about various issues these days, but films are not meant only to speak about that. A film is a piece of fiction or piece of art which is made to make money at the box office.” She adds, “I don’t think film makers should be burdened with the responsibility of making films on social issues,” she added.
Having said that, Richa stressed that “if a commercial film has a relevant message that reaches wider audience, it’s a great achievement.”
“Films like Bajrangi Bhaijaan and PK made a huge difference,” she said.
The actor, who comes from a non-film background and is critically acclaimed for her flawless performances, says some good offers are coming her way lately.
“Great work is coming my way and I am excited about it. I think work will only get better and things are improving. I am happy with the kind of cinema I am doing.”
