Richa Chadha gets trolled for backing Fawad Khan, gives a fitting reply yet again!

Richa had dismissed a question to Fawad about cultural contradiction between India and Pakistan’s film industries.

Mumbai: At the recent Indian Film Festival of Melbourne, Richa Chadha dismissed a journalist’s question to Fawad Khan about the cultural contradiction between India and Pakistan’s film industries as India had adopted westernization by including romance and kissing scenes.

She had said, “I would like to answer that. Sorry I am cutting in. You know we were colonised by the British for a really long time. It’s a part of the… I am sorry if I am offending anybody here, but if you look at worldwide history every time the British left an empire they divided it. Whether it was North Korea or South Korea then there was Germany. It is a part of the strategy to keep political unrest to sort off maintain a global kind of, I am sorry but your question to me doesn’t make sense because I will have far more in common with Fawad because I am from the North of India than i will have with somebody who is a tambrahm or maybe Malyaali or from the North east. I think we should avoid stereotyping in questions or creating some kind of contradiction here because the whole intent and especially art does not really have borders or boundaries.”

Richa got trolled on Twitter for her comments with Twitterattis calling her ‘bimbo’, ‘bimbette’, ‘dimwit’, with some South Indians taking offence and some pointing out historical errors in her point about Britishers’ colonization.

 

Richa, however stood by her comments and gave a fitting reply to some of the trolls directed to her.
