My mother is an inspiration for me, says Richa Chadha
Actor Richa Chadha (left), who’s known for her portrayal of offbeat characters in Bollywood, says that she wants to educate children through her films. She is inspired by her mother, who is a teacher in Delhi University.
The actor recently produced a short film, which she decided to take to small towns in order to spread education through cinema. “My mother is someone my entire family looks up to. She is an educator and has worked her entire life towards being a teacher. She’s an inspiration for me. My short film, which I produced, happened to be based on historical events. And having an educator in my family, I was keen to take the film to educational institutes and make people aware,” says Chadha, who produced the short film Khoon Aali Chithi.
The actor, who has been part of critically acclaimed films such as Gangs of Wasseypur (2012) and Masaan (2015), has already started targeting the towns she wants to go to with her film.
“We will begin with Punjab and try to go to a few high schools and colleges, and show the films to the students there. It’s important that good films are taken to young minds so that they can learn things through a different medium that holds their interest,” she says.
