‘We want 4G, 5G but not rights for women’
Actor Richa Chadha (right) prefers to be tight-lipped about her personal life and she holds society responsible for this. When asked about her love life, she says, “The way it goes, even if I was (seeing someone) I wouldn’t be able to tell you.”
The Masaan actor feels that people in India are too judgmental about everything, especially with regard to women. This prevents her from disclosing more details about her personal life. “I am sure that if I were somewhere else, I would probably be more open. So to lead a peaceful life, I would rather not say anything,” she adds.
She feels uncomfortable with this prevalent inequality in today’s society. “As a nation, we want 4G and 5G, but we don’t want women to have the same rights as men,” she says.
The actor, who is currently a part of a web series, has garnered applause for her work at international film festivals. However, she agrees that small films never get attention back home. “These films only have only a few shows in cinemas, and don’t have many slots. In many small cities, there are no screens at all, because the single-screens are shut down,” she adds.
