Actress Richa Chadha is playing the role of a female lawyer in her upcoming court room drama ‘Section 375’. Richa feels that the lack of women government lawyers in the country may be the reason for lack of sensitivity to crimes against women. He said this in an interview with the news portal Mid-Day.
Richa said, ‘The government is doing its job on setting up more women’s courts in the country to deal with crimes against women. Such courts are also headed by women ‘. The actress considers such an initiative as a step in the right direction. She also considers famous women advocates like Indira Jaising, Pinky Anand and Karuna Nandi as role models.
Richa further says that the number of women inside the court room is limited. The actress hopes that this profession will attract young women lawyers to her side now. She believes that only gender equality can develop sensitivity to crimes against women.
In ‘Section 375’ Akshaye Khanna is also playing the role of a lawyer along with Richa. The film is directed by Ajay Bahl. The film is based on the misuse of Section 375. Which is also known as anti-rape law in India. The film will be released on 13 September 2019.
