Actress Richa Chadda has been breaking barriers for doing unconventional roles right from her first film. Now with her latest film Love Sonia she will be seen playing the role of a brothel owner for the first time on the screen.

And for this film, Richa has taken inspiration from 1983 satirical comedy, Mandi — a film by Shyam Benegal on politics and prostitution.

 

“Mandi is a classic film and a compelling story told on celluloid by the maestro Shyam Benegal. When Love Sonia came to me, and when I begun my prep for it, I wanted to study as much as possible to be the character Tabrez had etched for me. I took to watching this movie specifically,” said Richa.

The film touches on a very sensitive subject, the international crisis of sex trafficking. “The world created in Mandi was a great reference point for me. The diction, the body language, the behaviour of the characters on screen, it really helps me do justice to my role of Madhuri in the film,” she added.
