New Delhi, May 9 (IANS) Richa Chadha, known for playing non-conventional roles, feels “Cabaret” is her “first typical commercial outing”. The actress says she is nervous about it but “in a good way”.
“Cabaret” unfolds the story of a girl who begins her journey from a small village in Jharkhand and wants to make it big in the world of dance. Along with dance, the movie will also present a dose of love and romance.
The actress said she decided to be a part of “Cabaret” for the “love of song and dance”.
“‘Cabaret’ is my first typical commercial outing and I did it for the love of song and dance and as an experiment. I am nervous about it, in a good way,” Richa told IANS in an email interview.
Directed by Kaustav Narayan Niyogi and co-produced by Pooja Bhatt and Bhushan Kumar under the banner of Fisheye Network Private Limited, “Cabaret” will release on May 27.
Richa, known for movies like “Fukrey”, “Masaan”, “Gangs of Wasseypur” and “Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela”, will soon be seen in Omung Kumar’s biopic “Sarbjit”.
“Sarbjit” is based on the life Sarabjit Singh, an Indian farmer who was convicted of charges of terrorism and spying in Pakistan and was sentenced to death. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan will be seen essaying the role of Dalbir Kaur Singh in the film while Randeep Hooda plays the title role.
Richa essays the role of Sarabjit’s wife in the film, set to release on May 20.
The actress feels lucky to be a film dealing with such a “sensitive subject”.
She added: “I think all actors want to be able to play diverse roles, hence I feel lucky. ‘Sarbjit’ is a sensitive subject, and deals with the life of a real person. I got an opportunity to again perform a challenging character and even though it was a serious film, I had fun during the filming and made great friends.”
Richa has already begun shooting for David Womark’s Indo-American production titled “Love Sonia”.
Post the film, the actress plans to take a break.
She said: “After ‘Love Sonia’, I am going to take a month-long break because I have been working non-stop since November. And that’s before I get back to ‘Fukrey 2’ with my favourite team.”
