SHOCKING! RICHA CHADHA OPENS UP ABOUT 'CASTING COUCH' IN BOLLYWOOD

Actress Richa Chadda who is known for movies like Gangs of Wasseypur, Masaan, Fukrey and many other movies is currently riding high on the success of her recent release Fukrey Returns. Recently the actress put out quite a shocking statement in an interview with PTI. With the ongoing #metoo campaign against sexual harassment Richa was asked about casting couch in Bollywood. To this the actress replied,

“If you give me the pension for life, take care of my safety, my family, ensure I’ll continue to get work in films and TV or whatever I want to do, my career will grow unabated as it is right now after I name and shame somebody, sure I will.”

“Every time someone speaks there are repercussions. Whoever is speaking out people are like ‘oh you’ve to name and shame.’ If the press knows who is doing this, why not let it out? Every time we take a step, there is a backlash. The ecosystem and the structure of the industry needs to change. We don’t have royalties here for actors, in absence of proper legislation, who will take a risk?”
The actress also said that she speaks about things close to her heart but she is also a little too emotional. She says that she has a strong sense of justice and the events in the world affect her.
