Richa Chadha to shoot her maiden production in Uttarakhand
Mumbai– Bollywood actress Richa Chada loved shooting for the series ‘Candy’ in the mountains so much that she’s planning to shoot her first production ‘Girls Will Be Girls’ in Uttarakhand.
Directed by Shuchi Talati and produced through the banner Pushing Button Studios, the story is set in a Himalayan boarding school in a hill station in northern India.
Richa said: “I loved shooting for ‘Candy’ and not only because it’s a gripping narrative but because of the location in which we were shooting. It was so peaceful and serene that I found it easier to focus than in the city.”
The plot of the film revolves around the coming of age of a 16-year-old girl and her relationship with her mother.
The actress added: “Since ‘Girls Will Be Girls’ is set in a hill station boarding school, I think Uttarakhand will be a perfect location. Fingers crossed.”
Details about the cast for the film are still under wraps.

Trolled for swimsuit pix, actress Vidyulekha Raman slams ‘1920 aunts and uncles’
Chennai– South Indian actress Vidyulekha Raman was trolled for posting pictures on Instagram that showed her wearing a bikini during her honeymoon trip to the Maldives. The trolls kept asking the actress when she would get a divorce.
The actor married her fiancée, Sanjay, a fitness expert, on September 9 and they had been to the Maldives for their honeymoon. In the caption to her post, in which she’s seen wearing a yellow floral swimsuit, Raman said, “I need six months off twice a year.”
Later, she shared she had been receiving messages and comments asking her: “When is your divorce?” She said she had answered the trolls by saying: “Live and let live.”
In a strong response, the actress said: “Hi Guys, When is my divorce? … Just because I am wearing a swimsuit? Whoa. Get out, 1920 aunts and uncles. Come in 2021! The problem is not the negative comments. But the way we think as a society. If a woman’s clothes are the reason for her divorce, shouldn’t everyone be in a “dressed properly” happy marriage? He (her husband) told me to ignore it and not address it. But I can’t just brush it off.”
She continued: “I can’t change your toxic, narrow-minded, or extremely regressive outlook on life. I hope the women in your life stand up to the sexist, oppressive and downright degrading ways in which you view a woman and her personality. Live and Let Live.”
