This book, written by by Italian duo Miriam Mauti and Riccardo Ghilardi looks at actors from across the world and their remarkable work. It is currently untitled.

The book will release in 2017, and it is a prestigious moment for Chadha, as she is the actor chosen from the Indian film industry. A source speaking to HT Cafe said, "The duo will be interviewing actors from different countries for their work and they chose Richa from India to be featured in the book for her contribution to Indian cinema. This book will be released next year in Italy and later, will be available globally across film festivals.”

The actor also posted a picture with the Italian authors on her Instagram account.

With the lovely Miriam and Ricardo! :)

Richa Chadha has caught the attention of audiences and critics abroad with her performances in films such as Masaan and Gangs of Wasseypur, which traveled to film festivals abroad.

She will be seen next in Fukrey 2 and Love Sonia, which is an international project. She is also set to star in a musical inspired by Bollywood films with Fukrey 2 co-star Ali Fazal and Michael Jackson's daughter Paris.

Her own book, which she will work on after the second Fukrey film has been shot, will focus on misogyny. Chadha's take on the subject will be a humourous one. Set in Delhi, the book's protagonist is a girl from a middle class family. It will be released in August 2017.
