A source says, “Richa will play the role of a successful actor. Her character is the owner of a cricket team, and will have some obvious parallels to Preity Zinta, who also owns an IPL team. This is unlike anything she has played before. Richa is excited about the venture, which will be aired on a global platform. She is also happy that she is reuniting with the producers of her hit film Fukrey (2013).”
