Actress Richa Chadha has started prepping for her upcoming film Section 375, a courtroom drama. She is even looking forward to attending some hearings.
"I admire lawyers like Gloria Allred and Karuna Nandy who stand up for what they believe in and fight the right good fight with facts, not emotions. I will make sure I study every aspect of the theme in this film and give it my best. Attending hearings will happen soon too," Chadha said in a statement.
The actress will play a lawyer alongside Akshaye Khanna in the film.
Director Manish Gupta earlier told the daily tabloid, Mumbai Mirror, that he researched several hearings in court and interviewed all those involved (the survivors, the accused and their lawyers) for two years for the film.
"In recent times, there have been a number of cases where it’s ambiguous whether it was rape or consensual sex. The law can be misused by both men and women alike. This film is about how a law against rape made to protect women can also be misused by them,” Gupta said.
