Why is Richa Chadda becoming an item girl?
Sari clad Nagma Khatoon of Gangs of Wasseypur will soon step into her dancing shoes. And we just had to dig in to find out why
We saw Richa Chadda play the role of a middle aged and then an old woman in Gangs of Wasseypur. And we feared that the babe might get slotted into such roles. Guess we were in for a surprise. Buzz now suggests that Richa has been roped in to do an item number in an untitled-as-yet movie to be directed by Akshay Chaubey. But what made the lady say yes to it?
“I agreed to the song only because Akshay (Chaubey) asked me to. Also, he’s one of the very few in the industry who knows that I can dance. The pub-type number was catchy and I learned my moves within a couple of hours when the choreographer scheduled an eight-hour shift to teach me the whole thing!” Richa said in an interview.
What’s more, Chadda and Chaubey have also known each other for a long time – Akshay is a friend of Richa’s brother and both have shared a neighbourhood in Delhi. And the said item number will be shot in that same location. Ooooh! Now that’s some coincidence, no?
So apart from the desire to flaunt her moves, Richa wants to honour some old connections too, perhaps. But will this song catapult the GOW actor into the coveted position of ‘the’ item girl of B-town? Time to wait and watch!
