Richa Chadha plays a lawyer in Section 375.

Drawing inspiration from some real-life incidents, the trailer of Richa Chaddha starrer Section 375 is out and it reiterates the importance of ‘consent’ and ‘permission’ in a sexual act. Beginning with a victim giving a painful testimony of her being raped to an insensitive police inspector, the trailer is sure to send chills down your spine.

Richa who is playing the victim’s lawyer has been pitted against Akshaye Khanna, the accused’s lawyer with both doing everything to protect their clients. And if anyone is less acquainted or unaware of Indian Penal Code’s Section 375, here’s the film to make them familiar that ‘consent’ and ‘permission’ are needed for sexual intimacy.

The grisly tale of rape is directed by Ajay Bahl and also stars Rahul Bhat and Meera Chopra.


The film went on floors on January 14 and is being bankrolled by Bhushan Kumar, Kishan Kumar, Kumar Mangat Pathak, and Abhishek Pathak.

Section 375 will hit theatres on September 13 this year.
