New Delhi: Actor Richa Chadha says her determination to be a decent human being motivates her to take a stand on sociopolitical issues.
Chadha, admired for her power-packed performances in movies such as “Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye!”, “Gangs of Wasseypur” series, “Masaan” and “Fukrey” films, is known for taking unflinching stands on key issues that has often made her a target of trolls on social media.
The 34-year-old actor, however, has no plans to mellow down as she said that she will continue to speak her mind. Staying silent, especially in the face of something wrong, is not a “good idea”, the actor said.
“You don”t have to be an activist or somebody who”s very outspoken. But if something wrong is being done to another person, you”re just staying silent because you”re afraid of something, then that”s not a good idea.”
Chadha recently launched a social media initiative, The Kindry, with an aim to amplify the everyday positive stories from the society amid the pandemic.
The actor has started a dedicated Instagram page with her friend and entrepreneur Krishan Jagota, where they will highlight people and their acts of positivity.
Chadha said she started the page in response to all the horrific stories that she heard and read about during the devastating second wave of the coronavirus pandemic in India in April and May this year.
