Richa started her entertainment career by modeling and appearing in commercials. She later transitioned into acting, appearing on stage in both India and Pakistan. Because of her theater success, Richa turned to the silver screen, making her feature film debut in the 2008 film “Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye!” She garnered critical success, which led to a plethora of other pictures, including “Benny and Babloo” and “Nirdoshi.”
Her biggest break occurred in 2012, when she starred in the smash hit “Gangs of Wasseypur – Part 1,” which premiered at the 65th Cannes Film Festival. The film was such a success that Richa revealed she was given 11 acting parts because of her role.
Moving forward, she starred in a wide variety of motion pictures, many of which were either critically acclaimed or box office successes. Richa has yet to make her mark in the United States.
She continues to model, posing for magazines, endorsing products and appearing in commercials for the likes of Virgin Mobile, Minute Maid and Cadbury. Richa is also an animal rights activist, working with the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, or PETA, by encouraging everyone to avoid eating fish and to go vegetarian. Many questioned the ad campaign because she was adamant in her opposition to the Maharashtra government’s prohibition of beef.
We estimate that Richa Chadda’s net worth is $1 million (2017).
So how much is $1 million really?
$1 million can produce your own Bollywood motion picture. $1 million can also help launch your own film festival in India.
