Mumbai: Actress Richa Chadha, who rose to fame with her character of Bholi Punjaban in the Fukrey franchise, became nostalgic as the second instalment of the franchise Fukrey Returns completed one year of its release on Saturday.

Reminiscing about the film's memories, Richa said in a statement: "Fukrey is a very special film. I am personally a huge fan of Bholi. She is brave and extremely intelligent and it has been amazing to play her twice. I have made lifelong friends...thanks to Fukrey. The success the film has had has been surprising and rewarding."

It seems the actress wants to take her Bholi Punjaban character ahead as she wrote to the film's director Mrigdeep Singh Lamba that it's time a third film should be made.

"I definitely do hope to work again with the team again on part 3 of the film, it would be amazing to reunite for the third time. I think we definitely deserve part 3 of Fukrey", she added.

Richa also posted a few photographs with the film's cast including actors Ali Fazal, Varun Sharma, Pulkit Samrat and Manjot Singh on social media. She is currently dating her Fukrey co-star Ali Fazal.
