We have always loved Richa Chadha for being as real as it gets both on and off-camera. Be it her choice of films, or how she handles trolls, she has done it unabashedly and with all the grace and humour. Hell, she even made it to her own stand-up comedy set that she absolutely killed! Richa is now gearing up for the second season of her Amazon show, Inside Edge 2.
The trailer looks like a bigger and better version of the first season, and as Richa very wittingly states, it’s like the iPhone 11 – the next bigger and better version of the iPhone 10! The show’s premise continues from where it left off last season and is about all the drama and dirty business that goes behind the world of cricket and glamour. Given cricket is a game spearheaded by men, for the most part, being one of the very few female leads and owning the role is something only Richa can pull off.
The only time it messes with my mind is when they all sound disdain while working on the marketing campaign or something. If the marketing campaign is only men, then it’s shown in the result. But as far as the actors are concerned, it being a cricket show, it is bound to be testosterone heavy. And that’s like my home ground. I’ve done Gangs of Wasseypur, I’ve done Fukrey which was me and lots of men. It’s notsomething that scares me.
I don’t really try to shame anybody as I come from a place of love but if somebody is making fun of me, I make fun of them back because then I think I’m allowed to. As women, what happens is you’re not expected to give it back. Sometimes when I see a stupid boy who is trying to make fun of me, just because he’s rattled that I’m a feminist then I’ll obviously teach him. So that other girls can also take note and tell them that this is virtual, so stay in your place now.
India is a huge market and I think it’s time the world opens up and starts noticing it. If people can watch Narcos which is made out of Brazil and Mexico then why can’t people watch Indian content? We just have to make it interesting.
