Actress Richa Chadha feels honoured to be a part of the jury for Nara International Film Festival.”I am excited to go to the Nara International Film Festival as a part of the jury. It’s a huge honour because I have been invited by none other than Naomi Kawase (the festival’s director). I became friends with her during Marrakech last year,” Richa, who was a part of the jury for the Marrakech International Film Festival, said in a statement.
“She’s a filmmaker of international repute. Nara is a beautiful historical city and it’s my first time there,” she added. Richa also shared that she has been lying low because she was working on her fourth big project for the year.
“Besides, visiting this quaint town to watch cinema is a delightful getaway,” she said. Richa Chadha earlier faced the wrath of some social media users after she backed Fawad Khan at an event in Melbourne and said India and Pakistan have a lot in common. Richa said she, as a north Indian, has a lot more in common with Fawad as compared to people from south India or the North East.
The trolls were having none of it. Richa was called “a bimbette” for her labours while many questioned her for backing “Pakistani Fawad.” Since then, Richa has been shutting down trolls and giving back as good as she got.
Richa has been busy replying to trolls and trying to convince people what she exactly meant. She wrote as an answer to one comment, “Thanks for missing the point. I love Tamilians so much that I can read and write the language. But troll on.” She blocked another user for saying “she showed south Indians their place”.
