Richa Chadha has been applauded for her compelling performance in the first episode of her new show, Inside Edge. She has done justice to the character of Zarina Malik so far by slaying in her elite look in the series. But this hasn’t come naturally to her. She has worked on it real hard!
Here are the 5 things which Chadha did for Zarina
1. Studied the on-screen Boss Ladies.
Richa, who is bubbly and easy as a person in real life took up a role like Zarina’s which required her to change her attitude from tip to toe. Obviously, that wasn’t easy, but she pulled it off! She saw all the Hollywood boss lady-like movies to put up a convincing act as Zarina.
Because the story of the show revolves around cricket, Richa couldn’t help but watch a lot of cricket matches almost every day. Her first cousin also happens to be a cricketer which helped her a lot to understand the game and its insights.
3. Transform into a Fashionista
Where Richa is so casually-simply-beautiful, she had to completely transform to the role of Zarina who is a Fashionista. She is a boss lady who is dressed at her best at any given time. Richa has taken care of every minute detail to become Zarina.
4. Smoke 10 to 12 cigarettes a day
Zarina Malik required to look convincing in all ways and, for better or for worse, smoking was a part of it. Richa, who doesn’t smoke in real life had to smoke 10-12 cigarettes in a day which cost her her health during the shoot.
5. Soon to invest in a sports team.
This sport oriented show has interested Richa so much that she is planning to invest in a boxing team herself.
More power to you, girl!
