Did you know that way before Richa Chadha was offered powerhouse performances in Sarbjit and Cabaret, she was approached by Dharma Productions about playing Hrithik Roshan’s mother in Agneepath? Shocked, aren’t you? “It freaked me out,” the actress reveals on The Firstpost Show with Renil Abraham. And of course she told them off! No wonder we believe her when she says despite her fame, she remains grounded.

As a person who speaks her mind, Richa also weighed in on the issue of pay gap between leading actors and actresses in the industry. It’s more a matter of experience and stardom than one of gender, she says. After all, the three Khans and an Akshay Kumar or Ajay Devgn “fill more bums in the seats” in a cinema theatre.

Richa also does not shy away from talking about the hottest topic in Bollywood right now – the Hrithik-Kangna scandal. Her solution? Talk it out like adults.
