Mumbai, May 5, 2013 (Washington Bangla Radio): Richa Chadda who blew audiences away with her performance in films like Oye Lucky Lucky Oye and Gangs of Wasseypur, being the perfectionist she is, is now going back to her mentor Barry John to sharpen her acting skills for her upcoming films.

Talking about the equation Richa shares with the theater veteran she says, “I’ve been really lucky to have trained with Barry who has been a huge inspiration and guiding force in my career. He has worked with some of the biggest names in the industry and is also responsible to a great extent in instilling in me a passion for acting. He has made me a thinking actor so my meeting him is a natural choice.”

All praise for the actress, says Barry John, “I have been associated with Richa since 1996 when we were based in Delhi and she had enrolled for a part- time course. Later when we shifted base to Mumbai, Richa approached me again and it was then when I saw the real talent in her. From that girl who came from a conservative family to this confident actress, Richa has really transformed herself.”
