Actress Richa Chadha says making her debut as a singer with Punjabi track “‘Gwandian from Dr. Zeus’ album “Global Injection”, was a decision that came about as a “happy accident”.

What drew her to come up with a song?

“It was a happy accident at best. I met with some friends and they were looking for a vocalist. I hummed and they asked me to record it. We were done with the whole thing in about 5 hours,” Richa told IANS over email.

The song, launched on Thursday, features the dynamic duo Dr.Zeus and Zora Randhawa and Richa Chadha with her “Fukrey” co-star Varun Sharma. Its video has already received over 1,757,750 views.

“‘Gwandian’ is a party track and also could be a wedding song. Hence, we didn’t want to shoot it in a typical fashion. We wanted to give it a family feel and make it relatable for people who live in big cities in apartment complexes,” she said.

Is the response encouraging enough to follow it up with another track?

“Sure. Since I am an actor first and not a singer, if anyone wants to collaborate with me, I am more than happy to,” said Richa, who is not opposed to the idea of singing for a film.

“Why not? If some one trusts me with it, why not?”

As a listener, she enjoys light Hindustani classical music “because it’s vast”.

“I listen to a lot of house and instrumental too. I like old Hindi songs and Sufi music. But my cardio playlist is usually hip-hop and pop,” the actress added. (IANS)

Actress Richa Chadha says women are still paid lesser than their male counterparts in the film business across the world despite all the talk on discrepancies.

“We have been discussing the discrepancies between male and female remuneration in every industry for quite some time now. Making up for the gap in remuneration has taken us years. Across the film business globally, women are still paid lesser compared to their male counterparts but there’s been some changes happening on that front in some parts,” Richa said.

“I see a change in the OTT world. We are writing stories where such issues are being discussed and debated, thus creating a shift in conditioning. There’s a reason we broach the subject in the second season and it clearly is an important facet in Zarina’s personality shift (Zarina Malik from ‘Inside Edge’). I am glad that at this point in time I am working with filmmakers and artistes who believe in the idea that merit should be the only measure for remuneration,” she added.

On the work front, Richa is seen in “Inside Edge 2”.
