Well-known actress Richa Chadha tells playing a politician in Sudhir Mishra’s “Daas Dev” was a remarkable challenge for her.
Richa plays Paro in the movie, set against the political backdrop of Uttar Pradesh.
“As an actor, I work hard to get into the skin of every character I play. Paro resonates with me personally and I find many of her traits true to mine. An interesting challenge was learning and absorbing how to play a woman politician and to this end, I did a fair amount of research,” Richa revealed in a statement.
On her look for the role, she revealed, “It is always crucial, and so, a part of my research was on how to comprehensively look like a young woman politician who would be taken seriously.”
Richa’s costume design team also incorporated handloom, a trademark significant to politicians in India.
“We decided to incorporate Indian weaves, khadi, cotton and elegant saris after researching the look extensively. Paro has always been an iconic character (courtesy ‘Devdas’), but with ‘Daas Dev’, Paro can once again become the icon of today,” revealed Richa.
“Daas Dev” also features Rahul Bhat, Aditi Rao Hydari, Saurabh Shukhla, Vipin Sharma, Dalip Tahil, Deep Raj Rana, Anil Sharma and Sohaila Kapoor.
