Richa Chadha exposes double standards of media on nepotism; narrates her Bollywood experience


Bollywood actor Richa Chadha opened up about the dark side of Bollywood, saying how phoney many in the industry are.

In a an Instagram story, the actor wrote: “‘Bollywood’, an imaginary address between Bandra and Goregaon. Here when people need you to do something that’s detrimental to you/your health/your career, they’ll tell you how good is it for you and be confident that you’ll believe them. I used to believe them when I was naïve.”

She lashed out at a section of the press that is obsessed about celebrity kids. “Some press peeps will wrote long pieces about how nepotism ruins the industry while creepily following every pre-pubescent with a famous last name, and dissing any self made professional in their mediocre writing, on the pretext of ‘freedom of expression’.”

She ended her post with a wakeup call. “Must reform faster, if it has to survive the onslaught of OTT, VR and everything in the future. Plz smell the coffee.”
