Richa Chadha comes to Fawad Khan's rescue family, wedding pictures, age, height, weight, biography
The Pakistani actor Fawad Khan, who has wooed the audience with his impressive work in Bollywood is in headlines again. Recently, while interacting with the media, Fawad was reportedly asked about cultural contradiction between Indian and Pakistan, an Indian actress Richa Chadha, who was also present at the event, interrupts and started giving answer on behalf of Pakistani actor.
According to Indian Express, he was asked by a journalist to comment on how there is a cultural contradiction between India and Pakistan and the way Bollywood has adopted westernisation while showcasing romance or kissing scenes on screen. But before Fawad could begin answering the question, actress Richa Chadha decided to answer the question on the actor’s behalf.
She said, “I would like to answer that. I am sorry if I am offending anybody here, but if you look at world history, every time the British left an empire, they divided it. I think we should avoid stereotyping in questions because the art does really have any borders,” she added. On the same note, Richa feels she and Fawad share many values. “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 from the north east.”
Fawad then thanked Richa for taking a stand and replied to the journalist by saying, “In Indian films you will see the on screen intimacy is very different from what it is on Indian television because they don’t cater to all the same audiences.” Drawing parallels with Pakistani cinema, Fawad added, “Even Pakistani TV has always been on the forefront and is something that is available to all Pakistanis. But to cater to the sensibilities that you want to bring to cinema, you have to accept a little curve for them. We may be different but we are the same too”.
The two were addressing the media at a press conference held at the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne.
