Richa Chadda is multi-faceted and over the span of her career, we have seen that over and over again. The actress can definitely act, she can dance, she’s an ace singer, she’s written and directed a short film and will soon also turn writer. If one has to look at the versatility of her roles, she’s been receiving fantastic reviews since she began her career in Gangs of Wasseypur.
All of these abilities and the fact that Richa doesn’t shy away from a challenge is clearly what made her bag the role of Shakeela in the biopic being directed by Indrajit Lankesh. The Masaan actress who will be seen in the titular role will begin shooting for the film in August.

While she has signed on for the film, there was some massive competition for the part of the adult film star. Actresses like Huma Qureshi and Swara Bhaskar were also in the running but the Masaan actress won the title.
Talent clearly goes a long way and we cannot wait to see how Richa does as Shakeela. Meanwhile, in June, Richa was honoured with the outstanding achievement award at the London Indian Film Festival for her performance in Tabrez Noorani’s “Love Sonia”. The film also starred Anupam Kher, Rajkumar Rao, Manoj Bajpayee and Sai Tamhankar.
