Actress Richa chadha, who will be next seen in the political drama Madam Chief Minister, urges filmmakers to make more films about women leadership. Directed by Subhash Kapoor, Madam Chief Minister features Richa in the lead role of a chief minister of a state.
"I was pleasantly surprised to be cast for the titular role in Subhash Sir's film. I have followed his work since Phans Gaye Re Obama, which I enjoyed very much. Madam Chief Minister is one of the most exciting scripts I have read and it possessed me. I am so grateful for this opportunity, as it is rare to come across writing and insight like this. It has been the toughest yet most enjoyable working experience for me. I have always believed that more stories of women in leadership roles need to be told and I am glad I could be a part of one such story," Richa said.
The film has been shot in Lucknow in November and December in a start-to-finish 40-day schedule. In a press note, the makers mentions that Subhash Kapoor, who worked as a journalist before, went for Richa as his natural choice because the actor is an articulate, politically and socially aware actor.
Richa Chadha said in a statement, “Happy to announce that our labour of love Madam Chief Minister has been announced. My toughest part yet, am grateful for the opportunity to collaborate with particularly witty Subhash Sir and with the splendid cast Manav, Akshay Oberoi and Saurabh Shukla.”
Madam Chief Minister also stars Akshay Oberoi, Manav Kaul and Saurabh Shukla. The film is slated to release on July 17.
