In­di­ans are rude. I have been in sit­u­a­tions where I have not even been asked for a pic­ture and peo­ple are al­ready click­ing. We need to learn how to re­spect bound­aries RICHA CHADHA, AC­TOR

Ac­tor Richa Chadha (right) is well aware that in­va­sion of pri­vacy is part and par­cel of be­ing a pub­lic fig­ure. How­ever, the 30-year-old says that there are times when she has been clicked by her fans with­out her per­mis­sion, which, she feels, is not right.

“In­di­ans are rude. I have been in sit­u­a­tions where I have not even been asked for a pic­ture and peo­ple are al­ready click­ing. I feel we need to learn how to re­spect bound­aries,” says Richa.

The ac­tor adds that there are times when she likes to “do her own thing”, but can’t be­cause of the fact the she is a pub­lic fig­ure. “I like to buy fruits, go cy­cling. But I can’t do that. This loss of anonymity is a big draw­back,” she says. How­ever, she has come up with a way to over­come this. “For the long­est time, I felt that peo­ple don’t recog­nise me. Then there were times when I would dis­guise my­self. So I bought a pair of glasses and wore that. That worked for a while. Then, there were times when I would cover my face with the cloth, the way peo­ple do to avoid the sun. I got away a few times as well!” says Richa, who was last seen in the film Sar­b­jit (2016).

Mean­while, Richa has just fin­ished shoot­ing for the se­quel to Fukrey, and is star­ring in a web se­ries called Pow­er­play.
