Actress Richa Chadha has turned producer, joining hands with her New York-based friend Sameena, who runs a storytelling company that showcases features, documentaries and entertainment content.
The Fukrey actress is going to be a member of an all-women production house in New York, founded by Sameena, with her latest stint and hopes to take the next step in production. She is in collaboration with a 60-women team.
In a statement, an elated Richa said, "My friend runs an absolutely fun all-women company, which I think is fantastic. Literally, every staff member is a woman, even the interns are teenaged girls. It has some amazing energy," reported Business Standard.
She added, "I have collaborated to co-produce content with them in India and I'm looking forward to it. More power to such initiatives."
Quoting a source here, who talked to Hindustan Times, saying, “Richa has been constantly involved in promoting women empowerment as a cause. She has been raising voice for women to be respected as much as men are in society. Furthering her belief, Richa will be working with her friend to develop and maintain productions in India starting this summer. The first few projects are supposed to be shot in May this year, in California, USA and Delhi. They will announce the first few projects soon.”
This is not the first time that this versatile actress has been involved in a production project. Earlier, she had produced a Punjabi short film 'Khoon Aali Chithi', which was released last year. Based on the Khalistan movement from the ’80s, the short film was screened at two film festivals.
You know you’re hooked to something once you get the unexpected appraisal for your work. The same happened with Richa. She was hugely encouraged by the response and thus took her interest in production a little ahead. Way to go, Richa!
