Richa Chadda, who will now be seen as a lawyer with the hard-hitting drama 'Section 375', says she is well aware that this film will stir debate. The actress plays a public prosecutor fighting to get justice for her client, who claims she was raped by Rahul Bhatt's character, who is represented by Akshaye Khanna's character in court.
"We shouldn't look at a case from a gendered point of view. It is a controversial film, and people will say this film is based on this case or that case. In this film, the director is trying to take a very truthful approach," says Richa about the film. Especially in today's day and age, where actors are constantly judged and questioned for the roles that they choose, the 'Fukrey' actress assures that 'Section 375' is not misogynistic.
"I don't think it is a misogynistic film at all. I did not watch 'Kabir Singh', but after hearing the director's interview I may not want to watch it. The director has put me off. As an actor, Shahid has done a great job. The whole joy of acting is to play a character that is out of the ordinary." She adds that she and the 'Section 375' team have tried to be honest. "There might be criticism for the film, but I have done a lot of research.
There are fake rape cases being registered, but a lot of actual rape cases simultaneously go unreported because people lose faith in the legal system," she says.
