Richa Chadha produced a Punjabi short film Khoon Aali Chithi last year. The short film was set against the backdrop of the Khalistan movement that took place in the ’80s. This was showcased in two film festivals. Now encouraged by the response, the Fukrey (2013) actor is planning to take her interest in production forward. Richa has collaborated with an all-women production house in New York owned by her friend Sameena, which makes features and documentaries.
A source has been quoted 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 the 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.”
When asked about her collaboration, Richa says, “My friend runs a fun, all-women company, which I think is fantastic. It has an amazing energy. I collaborated to co-produce content with them in India. More power to such initiatives.”
