Fast emerging as an icon for the youth because of her unflinching honesty, Richa Chadha recently took to the streets for an adorable ‘social experiment’. 

Despite being busy with the promotions of Panga and other pre-production work,  she tried an interesting initiative on International Hug Day. 

At a time when we’re seeing both the rise in extremism as well as rising awareness about social causes globally, the actress decided to go hang out at Carter Road, Bandra to holding a hand painted ‘Free Hugs’ sign. She wore dark glasses as she didn’t want to be recognised but just wanted to give out hugs as a citizen and not a celebrity. Although a few fans eventually did recognise her, she gave out hugs to strangers and passers by with ease.

When asked Richa said, “It’s important to do what one can to heal the world. I’d seen similar videos on the net and wanted to  try this noble idea. I used the excuse of this ‘International Hug Day’ to spread warmth especially due to the grimness of the past few weeks. It’s harmless. You can’t deny love. I am glad that I did this because it also left me feeling very happy. I believe we are happiest when we are loving. Like Martin Luther King said, “Darkness cannot he driven out by darkness, only light can do that…”, I wanted to be the change and it was a very humbling experience to share love with complete strangers ! It’s is a wonderful idea and I want to do it every year. A hug can melt the coldest hearts” 

True to twitter bio, she does indeed want to change the world “one hug at a time”.

Taking to the current events, the lockdown caused by the epidemic has taken its toll on every industry including the Media and Entertainment industry as shoots have come to halt. However, actress Fatima Sana Shaikh has been a bit more fortunate in that aspect as she had wrapped up shooting for her film ‘Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari’ before the lockdown begin!

The actress will be seen adapting to the role of a ‘Marathi mulgi’, in the family-comedy-drama film, ‘Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari’, for which she actually learned how to speak Marathi fluently to bring a more realistic element to her character. She surely does not shy away from even picking up new skills to mold herself into the mask of her characters.

Fatima is also going to be seen in Anurag Basu’s LUDO marking her reunion with Sanya Malhotra in the dark-comedy anthology film. Fatima had even unveiled a still scene from the upcoming film on her social media where she can be seen sitting in an e-rickshaw, in an attire of a salwar kameez, alongside actor Rajkumar Rao.

The actress will surely nail both of her distinctive characters from her films so make sure to watch her in her next!
