Richa Chadha is all set to turn author, will release her book in August.

In her eight-year-long career, Richa Chadha, who is known for her unconventional choices in films, has managed to carve a niche for herself in Bollywood. Richa, who is extremely active on social media, has also teamed up with various production houses to star in socially relevant videos. And now, going a step further, she has decided to write a book.

A source says, “After she wraps up the shoot of Fukrey Returns, Richa has some time to herself. This year, she is all set to debut as a writer with her first novel. The book is going to be focused on misogyny in India and has a humorous take on it. Richa, who is soon to do a live stand-up comedy act also, feels that through humour one can send across a great deal of message and create a lot of awareness among people.”

Set in Delhi, the book’s central character is a young woman who belongs to a middle class family. “It emphases on the kind of things women have to do every day to pursue everything - from focusing on their career to fighting sexist prejudices. Her book will release in August this year, but Richa is already excited as she has got a publisher on board,” confirms the source.
