Richa Chadha recently revealed that for her upcoming series ‘Candy’ she met female police officers to understand the balancing act of working in law enforcement and being a homemaker.
Richa said, “Portraying the role of a cop was not easy.” Adding further she said, “It demanded a very different mental makeup. I was lucky enough to hang out with some female cops and understand the dual pressures of managing the needs of the family in the Indian social set up, and working as a law enforcer.”
The actress will be seen in the Voot Select web series ‘Candy’, where she will be donning the role of a cop for the first time. Directed by Ashish R. Shukla, the series also features actor Ronit Roy in a lead role.
Earlier, while sharing details of her character of DSP Ratna in the series, Richa said, “I have always loved to experiment with my character and roles. This is just another opportunity to play a distinct character of a cop with a vivid character sketch. It has been challenging to play the character of a tough and uncompromising policewoman. Get ready to witness how DSP Ratna from Rudrakund unwraps the sin.”
Sharing the trailer on her Instagram, she wrote, “CANDY | OFFICIAL TRAILER Iss sheher mein, sabke apne secrets hai. Find out what they are with #CandyOnVoot, our new Original series. #UnwrapTheSin of Rudrakund on 8th September on @VootSelect #VootSelect.”
The series, set in the Himalayas, is a mix of suspense and murder mystery of a high-school student which forces a teacher and a cop to hunt down the killer. The edge-of-the-seat-thriller will stream on Voot Select from September 8.
