New Delhi, Dec. 13 -- Although many Bollywood actors may think twice before facing the camera sans makeup, actor Richa Chadda requested the makers of her forthcoming film to let her shoot without makeup, we hear.
"Richa is shooting in Varanasi for one of her upcoming films. She is playing a very interesting character. For one of the scenes, she was required to look very simple. So, to add a realistic touch to her character, Richa offered to shoot that particular scene without any makeup. Well, the director wasn't very sure of the no-makeup look, but Richa managed to convince him," says the source.
When contacted, the Fukrey actor confirmed the news. "This is going be a very unique character, where I sport two looks in the film. The first will be a regular girl and the second would be an embodiment of asexuality.
"I wanted it to look all-authentic. So, I went ahead with a no-makeup look for the role. Neeraj (Ghaywan, director) was a little hesitant initially, but eventually he came around the idea," says the 25-year-old actor.
We also heard that Richa has been taking lessons in classical dance from the locals of Banaras, where the shooting of the movie is taking place.
