Bollywood actress Richa Chadha has come out in support of a unique initiative for promoting handloom weavers of India. For this, she will feature in a coffee table book. To enlighten our readers, let us tell you that coffee table books are generally large in size in comparison to other books. These books are hard-covered and picture-heavy with great quality of paper which is also a reason why these books are little pricy than other books.
This coffee table book which we are talking about is helmed by designer Nidhi Jain and will feature work of handloom weavers from across India. It will portray women achievers from all walks of life including those from the social service, politics and entertainment sectors.
Richa said in a statement: "Different parts of India have unique weaving traditions. There are the beautiful hand-painted saris from the south of India and the amazing Banarasi weaves from the north. I am happy to be featured in this book because it is for a great cause."
She further said: "It is to reconnect and rekindle the enthusiasm of the youth in our heritage and its amazing traditions and artistry. Besides, which Indian woman doesn't look good in a sari?"
On the professional front, Richa is busy shooting Section 375 and Punjabi singer-cum-actor Jassie Gill starrer Panga.
