Richa Chadda is yet to establish herself fully in Bollywood, but that hasn’t stopped her from aiming for a Hollywood career. It seems that the actor is being considered for a role in the upcoming prequel to Peter Pan. International media claims Hugh Jackman has already been approached to play one of the main characters, the villain called Blackbeard.
“The role requires an Indian-origin girl. Richa gave a taped audition for it last month. And after attending an awards ceremony in the US recently, she stayed back because she was called in for a screen test,” says a source close to the actor.

Meanwhile, Richa has also been signed by a UK-based Indian producer for a bilingual Hindi-English film. Currently, she is working out her dates as the project is supposed to start in August, around the same time her film with Mira Nair, Words with God, premieres at the Venice Film Festival.
We tried contacting Richa, but she was unavailable for comment.
