Her co-star Rajeev Pillai, who is from Kerala and cancelled his wedding to help people affected by the floods, was helping on-ground and needed more support. 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.”

The NGO, ResQ, who Richa has been associated with for over a year, deployed a team of volunteers to Kerala. Using her large social media fan base, she appealed to the masses by posting videos of animals that were rescued by the NGO.
