Richa stated that the idea makes her "laugh out loud" as it is "hateful".
Actress Richa Chadha has criticised Bollywood celebrities for “shedding crocodile tears” following Sushant Singh Rajput’s death.
She made the claims in her blog about nepotism, favouritism and privilege.
Richa called out celebrities for faking their emotions on social media for the deceased actor and called their actions a “visual display of Chita par roti Sekhna”.
The actress went on to explain her claims, saying that several filmmakers who shared messages of condolence on social media are the same ones who “ran down movies of their peer’s pre-release, have replaced actresses who refused to sleep with them at the last minute and several have repeatedly forecasted their judgments”.
Richa slammed their actions, calling them “strategic and pathetic”.
Sushant Singh Rajput tragically died on June 14, 2020, having taken his own life.
It was reported that he had been suffering from depression due to a lack of acting roles.
Many said that he felt unwelcomed in the Bollywood fraternity, with filmmakers opting to cast members of prominent acting families as opposed to a fresh face like Sushant.
On the subject of nepotism, Richa stated that the idea makes her “laugh out loud” as it is “hateful”.
She recalled a story with Sushant. Richa revealed that she used to take acting workshops with him approximately 10 years ago and that he would often take her to auditions.
Richa said that while she was not penniless at the time, she was considerate about finances when she had to go to an audition for a skin brand.
She said that she would worry about her makeup running while in the rickshaw on her way to the audition.
Referring to the story, Richa Chadha said that it would never happen with a star kid.
If in the event that it did, they would receive attention and be praised for being humble enough to take a rickshaw instead of their chauffeur-driven car.
Despite criticising star children, Richa said that one cannot blame themself for being born into a film family.
On the work front, Richa Chadha is getting ready for the next film of the popular franchise Fukrey.
It has been reported that the filmmakers, Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani, are currently working on the script for the film.
They will start shooting the film once the Coronavirus pandemic in India calms down.
