The actress immediately raised funds to help her co-star rebuild his native village. Apart from that, she also donated money to various relief funds across the state.

Speaking about it, Richa said, “It’s a human responsibility to come together during adverse times and everyone should do their best in their capacity to show compassion for those suffering. In times of calamity, it’s a collaborative effort of all who are willing to help. You could be anywhere but can always make a difference by doing the best you can and I pledged to support the post floods rescue help by doing my bit.”
