Actor Richa Chadha, in a new interview, said that she cannot take those people in the film industry seriously who have ‘zero credibility’ but try to make themselves relevant by appearing as panellists on news channel debates. She called it ‘very opportunistic’ of them.

On being asked about the film industry being polarised, Richa said, “As far as polarisation in the film industry goes, I don’t know but I refuse to take seriously people who have zero credibility. I don’t want to name them here and give them more importance, because that’s actually what they thrive on. But the fact is, they have no credibility, they are the rejects of the system. They are what my friend Mini Mathur calls the ‘khurchans (scrapings from the bottom of the pan)’ of Bollywood.”

“If they are going to gather together, appear on TV debates, froth at the mouth and try to be relevant, they should not be taken seriously. I mean, they are not insiders, they don’t know… They are the ones who stand outside a room and bark at you for not being included. They are holding grudges from 1952. That polarisation I would not be able to speak for, because I think it’s very opportunistic,” she added. She was speaking to Film Companion.

Richa, who made her Bollywood debut with Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye! in 2008, has acted in films such as Masaan, Fukrey, Panga and Shakeela. She was recently seen in the Voot series Candy.
