Actress Richa Chadha says essaying a politician in Sudhir Mishra’s “Daas Dev” was an interesting challenge for her.
Richa plays Paro in the film, set against the political backdrop of Uttar Pradesh. “As an actor, I work hard to get into the skin of every character I play. Paro resonates with me personally and I find many of her traits true to mine. An interesting challenge was learning and absorbing how to play a woman politician and to this end, I did a fair amount of research,” Richa said in a statement.
On her look for the role, she said: “It is always crucial, and so, a part of my research was on how to comprehensively look like a young woman politician who would be taken seriously.”
The 31-year-old actress’ costume design team also incorporated handloom, a trademark significant to politicians in India.
“We decided to incorporate Indian weaves, khadi, cotton and elegant saris after researching the look extensively. Paro has always been an iconic character (courtesy ‘Devdas’), but with ‘Daas Dev’, Paro can once again become the icon of today,” said Richa.
Daas Dev is an upcoming romantic political thriller directed by Sudhir Mishra, starring Rahul Bhat as Dev Pratap Chauhan, Richa Chadda as Paro, Aditi Rao Hydari as Chandni, and Saurabh Shukla, Vineet Kumar Singh, Dalip Tahil, Anil George, Deepraj Rana, Saurabh Tyagi with Anurag Kashyap in a guest appearance. The film is scheduled for release on 20 April 2018.
