Her fascination for significant roles has restricted her south career to just 20-odd films in a decade-old career. “I cannot relate to mindless roles even today,” she avers, citing an example of her dream Malayalam debut film Daddy Cool. “It was challenging to play a young wife to ace actor Mammootty. My efforts won critical acclaim and the film was a commercial success too,” she avers. When quizzed about her Bollywood ventures, Richa, a child artiste in films like Lamhe and Pardes, says, “I did films like Agnipankh, Kuch Tum Kaho Kuch Hum Kahhe but I am waiting for an exciting offer. I am happy that Bollywood is coming up with good films like Wake up Sid and I can fit into the scheme of new generation filmmakers,” she declares.
The Mumbaikar, who had a dream run as a model with more than 200-odd endorsements to her credit, says she is yet to find Mr. Right. “I haven’t found my ideal match, but cupid can strike any moment,” she says. The girl with a mind of her own, leads a disciplined life and claims that her soft, sweet, and bubbly onscreen image is closer to her real self.
