Madam Chief Minister: Richa Chadha Finally Gets Her Due In Gritty Trailer
Actress Richa Chadha recently launched the gritty trailer for her upcoming film Madam Chief Minister which has set Twitter ablaze. While some hailed her performance and the story, others were furious at the poster which features Chadha holding a broom and the words: ‘Untouchable Unstoppable’.
“What does ‘Untouchable Unstoppable’ mean? Why was this tagline used at all? ‘Untouchable’ is not the word to be used, as the community itself doesn’t represent themselves like that. How long (will) the industry directors and producers continue to create such shameful taglines and misrepresent?” Jyotsna Siddharth, an activist who runs the digital platform ‘Project Anti-Caste, Love’ tweeted.
Yet others called out the poster for enforcing stereotypes. However, Richa Chadha is not letting these criticisms stop her from enjoying the ample compliments she has been getting. According to the Deccan Herald, she has dismissed the criticisms as “cancel culture” and “woke agni-pariksha“.
Chadha has proved her mettle in multiple films but unfortunately, has not received the kind of projects that an actress of her stature deserves. The actress is also one of the few names in the Hindi film industry who has been vocal about the violation of human rights in India.
The trailer for Madam Chief Minister takes on a host of issues but doesn’t appear to become encumbered by them. Here’s hoping the film also manages to manage the same.
Madam Chief Minister is directed by Subhash Kapoor and produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Naren Kumar, Dimple Kharbanda. The film is co-Produced by Vinod Bhanushali & Shiv Chanana (T-Series), and President Global Digital Business & Legal Neeraj Kalyan (T-Series).
The movie is set to release on the 22nd of January this year.
