Mumbai, March 10 -- Whether it is hitting the gym to get in shape for a particular look or picking up the nuances of a new skill, actors are known to go out of their way to get under the skin of a character.
And Richa Chadda is no different. The actor is all set to go to New York, USA, to do research, and prepare for the role of a cabaret dancer in her next film that will be directed by Pooja Bhatt.
A source close to Richa says, "She plans to watch a number of theatrical performances in New York to understand the nittygritty of performing live." Since cabaret is known to be a crucial part of the Broadway performances in New York, Richa felt that witnessing these shows first-hand will help her understand the dance form better.
"She will spend two weeks there. During her stay, she will also take tips from professional cabaret performers," says a source.
Incidentally, Richa also plans to watch a major Broadway production titled Cabaret, which stars Hollywood actor Sienna Miller. The shoot for Richa's film, that also stars Gulshan Devaiah, is set to start in May.
Confirming the news, Richa says, "I am looking forward to a fun work trip to New York in April."
