Bollywood actress Richa Chadha is all set to play lawyer for the first time in her upcoming courtroom drama Section 375. As part of preparations for her role, she has started meeting law professors in Mumbai.
Earlier, she had visited some of the law firms to read books on law and to understand the nuances of the judicial procedure. The film Section 375 deals with some real-life incidents and how a critical section in law to protect women can also be misused.
"My character is that of a very driven and ethical lawyer. Hence, I wanted to see what drives people to take up litigation in the first place. That's why law schools were a good idea and spending time with them was of great help. The research came in handy and has been crucial," Richa said in a statement.
The film is to be directed by Ajay Bahl and will also star Akshaye Khanna.
