Filmi Fun­das

Richa Chadha, ac­tor, on act­ing, the fu­ture and the un­ex­pected

India Today - - LEISURE - —with Suhani Singh

Q: If you weren’t an ac­tor, what would you be?

A: A pho­tog­ra­pher. I stud­ied it for a lit­tle while. Even now I carry a Po­laroid around with me every­where, with ex­tra film handy.

Q: One thing you dread?

A: I don’t see a bright fu­ture for the coun­try or the planet. I hope it changes. What dis­turbs me is that his­tory re­peats it­self and we don’t seem to learn.

Q: One thing you can’t do with­out while on a shoot?

A: I carry a can­dle. Van­ity vans are very im­per­sonal, tube­lit and some­times smelly, so can­dles make things beau­ti­ful.

Q: What’s some­thing you did to­day that no­body would be­lieve a star would do? A:

I opened a sewing kit be­cause I had a wardrobe mal­func­tion. A thread had come off [my clothes]. I didn’t do a good job.

Q: If you could work with any ac­tor, liv­ing or dead, who would it be and why?

A:

For rea­sons of at­trac­tion, maybe Ryan Gosling and Clive Owen. And Meryl Streep.
