Actor Richa Chadha’s team is looking for a student filmmaker to direct her next production.

Actor Richa Chadha turned producer for Punjabi short film Khoon Aali Chithi, and now for her next, she is keen on finalising a director who’s new and has a fresh take on filmmaking. The actor-turned-producer now wants to focus completely on digital content, and is looking for a film school student or an aspiring director.

“I believe that every individual should get a chance to prove their talent. Everyone can’t have a godfather to launch them. So if we need good quality content, we need to explore and fetch it. Young filmmakers and their vision today is giving a brand new perspective to cinema. I believe encouraging and giving them a chance at this level would go a long way for them and would benefit our film industry as well,” says Richa, who was last seen on the silver screen in the film Sarbjit (2016).

The Delhi actor, who made her Bollywood debut with Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye! (2008) went on to be part of hit films such as Gangs of Wasseypur (2012), Fukrey (2013) and Masaan (2015). “Richa comes from a non-film background and understands how difficult it is to break into Bollywood without a mentor or a godfather. She, along with her team, is currently working to zero in on one such a director who will get the opportunity to make his debut under her banner,” says a source.
