Richa on her mistakes
Asked about her choices, Richa said she has always been choosy but she has also made her mistakes. “There are films that, when I look at my filmography, I cringe and regret.” She added that when she took up those films, she did not know if they would be badly executed, and simply gave her best. She added that she has made ‘regrettable decisions’.
Richa has worked in five-six really bad films
“However, now that we are also producing, I think they will be at a minimum because I’ve realized that working in a toxic environment or working on a bad film, or working on a film, which you know, is now going down south, you have to really detach yourself. So yeah, so I’m kind of in that space now. There’s at least five or six in there. We have no point talking about all those. The directors will get sent and send me messages. The truth is, it was really bad. The films are really bad,” she added.
In the interview, she also revealed that she has worked with toxic women and it was once a woman on sets of a film who made her feel 'less' because she is a woman.
Richa's new projects
Richa was most recently seen in her hit comedy franchise Fukrey 3. The film opened to mixed reviews and crossed ₹100 crore at the global box office.
