Actor Richa Chadda is looking forward to her debut production, Khoon Aali Chithi, a Punjabi short film.

Joining the bandwagon of female actors who turned producers in Bollywood, actor Richa Chadda too has stepped into production.

The 27-year-old actor, who has worked in critically acclaimed films such as Gangs Of Wasseypur I and II (2012) and Masaan (2015), has produced a Punjabi film Khoon Aali Chithi -- a short film based on the terrorism in the 1980s and 1990s due to the Khalistan movement in Punjab. She will also present the film.

“I’m glad that I could come on board as the producer for this project. It’s an amazing and powerful Punjabi short film. I really hope that we will be able to find great space for it at film festivals in the coming year,” says Richa, who is gearing up for the release of her next Hindi film, Sarbjit, directed by Omung Kumar.

“Richa would be presenting and producing a Punjabi film, Khoon Aali Chithhi, which is being directed by Rupinder Singh. Its title means ‘letters written in blood’. The film is doing the round of film festivals and has been selected for the International film festival of South Asia in Toronto. She has not just supported the film financially, but has also given a lot of creative inputs,” says a source from the production.

Earlier, actors such as Lara Dutta, Juhi Chawla and Anushka Sharma have also produced films.
