Actress Richa Chadha, who is proud to portray a brave character like Shakeela on the big screen, looks at the #MeToo movement positively. She believes the movement should have a trial by law that can bring the truth to the fore.The most recent name to have emerged in the #MeToo wave is that of filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani, who has been accused of sexual harassment by a woman assistant.
Richa decries trial by media
On her opinion on the movement, Richa told the media here: "I am happy that this movement took place and it is important to the cause of it. However, I feel that instead of the #MeToo movement being more about trial by media, it should be more trial by law, which is what will bring the truth to the cause."Instead of rumours, I feel it's more important to understand the actual cases and bring justice to them."
Richa said: "When I first heard the story and when Indrajit told me about the script, I was amazed to know how cinematic her life is. She is an unapologetic person who never apologised for her choices. She empowered herself and did things in a business which was largely male-dominated back then.
