Richa talks about experiences with female producers, co-actors

Richa said, "I don’t think I subscribe to the fact that all women are saints. I’ve had some terrible experiences with female producers whose cheques bounced and they pretend to be feminists on Twitter (now X). I’ve also had toxic co-actors constantly competing with me by not giving the right cues and cutting out the lights in scenes. I can’t say that I have had a uniform, monolithic experience. Sisterhood definitely exists and it’s real when you build it, craft it and nurture it. But it takes more than one person to understand and create that."

Richa speaks about “vile women”

Richa added, “I think it’s an anti-feminist notion to think that women are not capable of evil. That’s just a dumb thing. We have enough vile women around us. Women defending rapists are vile, corrupt and horrible but they’re often in positions of power. They’re often given a platform by the media too...I know plenty of women who are downright patriarchal and misogynist and plenty of men who are feminists. It’s not a gendered thing.”

Richa in Heeramandi

Richa was recently seen in the web series Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar. She essays the role of Lajjo, a courtesan with a captivating persona. The series marks Sanjay Leela Bhansali's debut on OTT.
