Actress Richa Chadha has finished shooting for her next film which is yet to be titled, and has said that she plays a character based on a real-life story that moved her to the core. The film is based on many stories during the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic that impacted the world; India was among the worst countries, with several lives lost to the Delta variant and a failed medical infrastructure.

Talking about her character in the film, Richa said, "This is based on real incidents that we all witnessed during the second wave of COVID. While there was loss and despair, there was also hope."

She further added, "The film takes a hard look at all our lives during the pandemic, when we were afraid to be human. There was enforced and mandatory distance. It talks about the doctors and nurses who were doing their jobs selflessly. I am honoured to play the role of a resilient nurse."

The upcoming untitled film is produced by Zee Studios and directed by Abhishek Acharya. It revolves around the tough times that all the frontline workers went through during the global pandemic, especially the medical staff and doctor community.

The actress is known for delivering fine performances in films like Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye!, Gangs of Wasseypur, Fukrey, Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela and Masaan, among many others. She has also appeared in web series like Inside Edge, Candy and The Great Indian Murder.

Apart from the untitled film, Richa has also wrapped up the shoot of Girls Will Be Girls, the first movie of her co-owned home production. The film is an Indo-French co-production that is being jointly produced by Pushing Buttons Studios, Crawling Angel Films and the French company, Dolce Vita Films.
