Mumbai, May 23 -- Before leaving for the Cannes Film Festival in France, where she attended a screening of her film, Richa Chadda had a hectic shooting schedule.
So, she has decided to take a short break by extending her stay in Europe.
The actor has stayed back for five days, and Paris and Chamonix (both in France) and Amsterdam, Netherlands, are the places on her itinerary.
"Richa left for Paris yesterday (May 22) and wants to explore the city before visiting other places. She made this last-minute plan as she wants to make the most of her free time. She will travel alone, as she considers it a way of detoxing after working on multiple films in the past few months," says a source close to the actor.
Apparently, she has been planning a holiday for a long time, but could not manage to take time off.
"Richa completed shooting for Sudhir Mishra's film just before travelling to Cannes. Now, she has taken a break as she has some free dates before returning to India and starting work on Pooja Bhatt's film," adds the source.
When contacted, Richa confirmed the news, and said, "I will do some leisure reading, indulge in some shopping and explore the city all by myself, much away from everything usual. This will be my way to detox before I get back to India."
