Richa Chadha’s next will be in ‘Daas Dev’, a film based on Sarat Chandra Chattopadhyay’s novel Devdas. And as part of her preparation for the film, Chadha is spending a lot of time studying female politicians.
Reported on Hindustan Times, in order to really understand the character and mannerism, Chadha has been following real-life female politicians. “The role of Paro that I play in Daas Dev is unlike the previous versions of the film, and its adaptations. This time around, she is strong and level-headed. Since I play a politician, I took references from watching these rallies and debates to see how women politicians behave, the nuances of their poise, their speeches and other things. Observing them helped a lot to build my character,” explains the ‘Cabaret’ (2016) actress.
A close source also shared about Chadha’s process to learn in detail about the politicians. “She watched modern-day female politicians such as Chhavi Rajawat and Dimple Yadav. And she made it a point to learn a politician’s body language, way of talking and walking to understand the depth of the role and also to give 100% for the same.”
‘Daas Dev’ is being directed by Sudhir Mishra, and also stars Aditi Rao Hydari and Rahul Bhat in the lead roles.
