Actress Richa Chadha is set to play a lawyer in the upcoming courtroom drama “Section 375”. As part of preparation for her role, she met law professors from law colleges here.

This will be the first time that Richa will be donning the black robe of lawyer in a film.

Earlier, she had visited some of the lawyer’s law firms to read books on law and to understand the nuances of the judicial procedure.

Richa has now taken one step ahead to prepare for her role. She has started meeting law professors from law colleges in Mumbai.

The film “Section 375” deals with some real-life incidents and how a critical section in law to protect women can also be misused.

“My character is that of a very driven and ethical lawyer. Hence, I wanted to see what drives people to take up litigation in the first place. That’s why law schools were a good idea and spending time with them was of great help. The research came in handy and has been crucial,” Richa said in a statement.

The film is to be directed by Ajay Bahl and will also star Akshaye Khanna. (IANS)

Actress Richa Chadha has become a part of a special promotional initiative of the US Consulate here to extend support for the Pride Month in India.

A post on the official Instagram account of the US Consulate General in Mumbai, shows Richa posing in a bright yellow ensemble and making a heart gesture with her hands.

Alongside that is a post which reads: “It’s 2019! Obsolete ideas of morality, misinformation about LGBTQIA+ must go. By repealing Section 377, India has joined the ranks of other progressive nations in the world. For the common man, there’s now a growing understanding that being LGBTQIA+ is normal. But repealing the law on paper and having greater acceptability as an LGBTQIA+ in society are very different things.

“We need to work tirelessly to remove ignorance, misinformation and stigma attached to the community and its choices. Life must be made easier. An open and welcoming approach to the LGBTQIA+ must percolate down to the tier two cities and villages in India, and not stay restricted to the cosmopolitans.”

The actress added: “As a society, we must become more inclusive and aware about all genders and their needs. The role of LGBTQIA allies is crucial in this regard, as we can help bring issues of stereotyping and harassment to the notice of people and popular media. We should team up with artists who fight for freedom of expression, against censorship, and also join hands with those fighting for marginalised groups.”
