Richa Chadha: I shouldn't bother the defendants in a harassment case
Actress Richa Chadha has said that people should not troll or abuse an accused person in a case of sexual harassment on social media platforms until such time as their guilt or innocence is proven.
Richa was interacting with the media at the launch of the trailer for 'Section 375' together with actors Akshaye Khanna , Rahul Bhatt , Meera Chopra , director Ajay Bahl and producer Kumar Mangat Pathak here on Tuesday.
According to reports, actress Deepika Padukone said she will not work with anyone who has been accused of sexual harassment. This was after reports that he was in talks to star in the next film by director Luv Ranjan. Ranjan had been accused of sexual harassment by an anonymous woman.
When Richa was asked if she will work with a person who has been charged in a sexual harassment case, she said: The media also attend press conferences organized by the accused #MeToo, so you (the media ) must also see their own actions. I feel until such time that a person is not legally guilty or innocent, we should not form our opinion about them. It is a social problem and we all have to address it. We must not disturb or mistreat the person in social networks. forming groups because it is very complicated.
Two days after the video of singer Mika Singh playing live at Pervez Musharraf's relative's wedding festivities in Karachi went viral, the singer was banned by the Federation of West Indian Film Employees and the Association of Film Workers from all over India (AICWA).
In response to this, Richa said: I feel that artists talk about love and peace. Both countries share a common culture, but the first victim of the conflict is art and humanity. I think the citizens of both countries want peace. It is always the antisocial elements and evil people that create chaos in the country, so I think that once the situation changes, we can share a different kind of relationship with our neighboring country. I feel that artists always express themselves through their films, poetry or any other art forms and do not believe in spreading hate among people.
