Richa Chadha takes huge dig at big Bollywood hero in stern takedown of his salary and film's poor opening – any guesses?
Richa Chadha has just slammed a top Bollywood hero and his movie. In a recent interview with Indian Express, Richa said that a film was released that she's sure will come on OTT soon, a film whose leads had their noses up in the air, but when the collection of first day came, it was less than one-third of what the hero charges. Taking a dig at the hero, his salary and his latest release's box office opening, Richa Chadha added that if this happens, how will does the math work, emphasising that those are the real questions one has to ask and work from there while stressing that the bigger stakeholders in the business should take the onus if cinema has to survive.

Moreover, she also felt that nothing will change here unless that change is forced. That being said, it's worth noting from our end that all those recent blockbuster South biggies like RRR, KGF 2 and Pushpa collected such big numbers mainly due to the major boost received in the Hindi markets, where the ticket rate were as high as ₹1000-1500 for the first 2 weeks.
