A 2 hour film can't ruin Indian culture: Richa Chadha on Padmavati row

The actress also said that she sees no reason for commenting on a film without watching it.


Actress Richa Chadha backed Sanjay Leela Bhansali's upcoming Padmavati, saying "our culture is not so fragile that a film can ruin it".

The actress, who was present for the song launch of her upcoming film Fukrey Returns, on Wednesday (15 November) told media: "I do not think our culture and religion is so fragile that a film of two hours can ruin that [sic]."

"On the other hand, we are living in a democratic country where we have an appointed board that certifies our films, I see no reason for commenting on a film without watching it," Chadha, who was also a part of Bhansali's Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela, said.

The cast and musicians of Fukrey Returns, including Pulkit Samrat, Varun Sharma, Ali Fazal, Manjot Singh, Siddharth Mahadevan, Gulraj Singh, lyricist Kumaar, along with producer Ritesh Sidhwani, were present at the event.
