Richa Chadha is possibly one of the most brazen and outspoken heroines we know. But she always stands up for the right causes and in the rightest manner possible. In this unabashed and unapologetically honest and exclusive interview, she reveals the several ills of the society she has battled over the years. She not only called out people for making sexual moves on her but also reveals how she has been offered ridiculous roles - whether it was the character of Hrithik Roshan's mother in Agneepath or getting scripts filled with abuses. 

About facing casting couch, Richa said, "A couple of times I did not get it. I was very young and stupid. Once a man came to me and said 'we should have dinner suggestively' but I was too naive to understand and I said I have already had dinner.' and then he insisted. It has happened to me even after I got established as an actor. If you are an established actor and the person opposite you, who is making advances, who has power in the industry. Given the outcome of MeToo or what is happening today, this is stuff we have to navigate every day. I have managed to bypass it. I am sure I have lost the project because of this but doesn't matter."

Richa also revealed she was horrified when she got a call to play Hrithik Roshan's mother in a movie. She had called up the casting director to put him in place and never received any revert from him since.
