Richa-Chadda-2014-ImagesRicha Chadha, who has worked in films like “Fukrey” and “Masaan”, says filmmakers should not be burdened with the responsibility of making films based on social issues all the time.

“I am happy that films are talking about various issues these days, but films are not meant only to speak about that. A film is a piece of fiction or piece of art which is made to make money at the box office,” Richa said.

“I don’t think film makers should be burdened with the responsibility of making films on social issues,” she added.

Having said that, Richa stressed that “a commercial film has a relevant message that reaches wider audience and (if that happens) it’s a great achievement.”

“Films like ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ and ‘PK’ made a huge difference,” she said.

The actress, who comes from a non-film background and is critically acclaimed for her flawless performances, says some great work is coming her way lately.

“Of late, great work is coming my way and I am excited about it. I think work will only get better and things are improving. I am happy with the kind of cinema I am doing. You will hear some great announcements soon.”

Richa recently wrapped up shooting for an Indo-American film titled “Love Sonia”, directed by Tabrez Noorani and produced by David Wormack.
