Richa Chadha in her career spanning 15 years has done a number of lucrative projects. The talented actress has garnered much praise for her acclaimed performances in films like Gangs of Wasseypur, Masaan, Fukrey, Panga, and Madam Chief Minister. But the role of DCP Sudha Bhardwaj, an upright police officer, in The Great Indian Murder, is one of her favourites.
The Great Indian Murder is based on Vikas Swarup’s riveting novel, Six Suspects. It revolves around the murder of the son of a high-profile minister. Directed by Tigmanshu Dhulia, the intriguing mystery features Pratik Gandhi, Richa Chadha, Raghubir Yadav, Ashutosh Rana and others.
In an exclusive interview with Bollywood Bubble, Richa Chadha not only spoke about The Great Indian Murder but also reflected upon her journey.
Richa said, “It’s not that all the scripts I have done have been phenomenal. Each time there are different motivations. Sometimes there are some dates available, sometimes it is the manager’s nephew who is making a film. We are not surgeons and are not saving lives. Sometimes something good happens and sometimes something bad. many a time something very nice too happens. Sometimes you are invested in a particular manner but later you think what was I thinking about. Therefore I do not think that it is necessary to be aesthetic. It happens in each actor’s life.”

She further added, “But I think pressure, hmm I mean it is for the best that my first film did not farewell. Therefore I am very stable about success and failure. I always look at it with a perspective that gives me a clear picture. It is like riding a wave. So I don’t take the pressure. The only thing that I have done consistently is not to read the reviews. As sometimes they are very good but sometimes the reviews can read like a roast.”
