Mom-to-Be Richa Chadha Signs Comedy Film, Plans to Avoid Long Maternity Break

Published:

Like Kareena Kapoor Khan, Alia Bhatt, and Neha Dhupia, mom-to-be Richa Chadha is proving to be an inspiration for many women on how to balance professional and personal life. Determined to resume work soon after welcoming her baby, Richa has signed a comedy film and plans to avoid a long maternity break.

Richa has committed to her next project, an untitled comedy film, which is set to begin pre-production in August and start filming in October. According to a source close to the film’s production, “Richa has loved the script and it’s a really fun concept. The pre-production work is set to take place in August and will go on floors in October. The film is meant to be shot at the brink of winters in the north.” The script, written by Amitosh Nagpal, is set in North India.

Commenting on her return to work post-maternity, Richa said, “While I can’t speak for all women, because it depends on each individual what their journey is like, I am determined to get back to work as soon as possible, and not take a long break, as I have pending commitments.”

Richa cited her mother as her inspiration, stating, “I take immense inspiration from my mother, who managed both roles with grace and efficiency. I believe I can handle both duties effectively as well because it depends on the kind of support system you have around you and how hands-on your partner is. In my case, I feel blessed to have both of those things figured out. I also don’t think it is out of the ordinary. I have seen the badass women of Mumbai take local trains well into their 9th month, heading to work, looking perfectly groomed with their gajras intact. I am very inspired by the average Indian woman and don’t want this to be treated as a medical condition, it is not. It is a natural part of life.”

Richa and Ali Fazal, who are expecting their first child together, shared the news with their fans in February via Instagram. They posted an image saying “1 + 1 = 3” with the caption: “A tiny heartbeat is the loudest sound in our world.”

The couple met on the sets of ‘Fukrey’ in 2012 and fell in love soon after. Legally married since 2020, they celebrated their union with festivities across Delhi, Mumbai, and Lucknow in 2022.

Meanwhile, Richa is currently receiving praise for her performance as Lajjo in the recently released ‘Heeramandi.’
