Ac­tor Richa Chadha ven­tured into pro­duc­tion with the Pun­jabi short film Khoon Aali Chithi. Now for her sec­ond pro­duc­tion, she is keen on fi­nal­is­ing a direc­tor, who’s new and has a fresh take on film­mak­ing. She wants to fo­cus on dig­i­tal con­tent, and is look­ing for a film school stu­dent or an as­pir­ing direc­tor.

“I be­lieve that ev­ery in­di­vid­ual should get a chance to prove their tal­ent,” she says, adding, “Ev­ery­one can’t have a god­fa­ther to launch them. So if we need good qual­ity con­tent, we need to ex­plore and fetch it. Young film­mak­ers and their vi­sion to­day is giv­ing a new per­spec­tive to cin­ema, she says. ” Richa also says that she be­lieves in giv­ing them a chance at this level. “This could go a long way for them and would ben­e­fit the film in­dus­try as well,” adds Richa, who was last seen in the film Sar­b­jit (2016).

The Delhi ac­tor has also been part of hit films such as Gangs of Wassey­pur (2012), and Masaan (2015). “Richa comes from a non-film back­ground and un­der­stands how dif­fi­cult it is to break into Bol­ly­wood with­out a men­tor. She is cur­rently work­ing to zero in on one such direc­tor who will get the op­por­tu­nity to make his de­but un­der her ban­ner,” says a source.
