‘Films need not have so­cial is­sues’

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

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.”
