Richa Chadha who is known for picking up projects with unique subjects has announced her next feature. The actress will be seen in a film based on the impact of Covid-19’s second wave. Richa is playing the role of one of the thousand frontline workers who put their lives on the line with selfless determination for the sake of saving the lives of their patients.
Speaking about her film and her role, Richa Chadha said, “The film is based on those real incidents that we all witnessed during the second wave of Covid. While there was loss and despair, there was also hope. In fact I was so moved by this kindness of strangers that I started ‘The Kindry’, a small social media initiative that only amplified stories of goodness, selflessness through the second wave. The film takes a hard look at all our lives during the pandemic, where we were afraid to be human, there was enforced and mandatory distance. It talks about the doctors and nurses who were doing their job selflessly. I am honoured to play the role of one such resilient nurse”.
Directed by debutant Abhishek Acharya, the untitled project will be presented under the banner of Zee Studios. The makers have kept the rest of the details about the film’s cast and plot under wraps.

Meanwhile, on the work front, Richa was last seen in Zee5’s spy thriller Lahore Confidential (2021). Apart from the upcoming untitled project, Richa will be next seen in Girls will be Girls, the first movie of her co-owned home production.
