Actor Richa chadha has been awarded the Bharat Ratna Ambedkar award. The actor took to Instagram to categorical her happiness and her ideas at receiving the award.
She wrote: “Thrilled to be amongst the recipients of the Bharat Ratna Ambedkar award, conferred upon me by the H’ble Governor of Maharashtra. I woke up to the greatness of the giant that was Babasaheb very late in life, maybe due to my caste privilege! To not perceive the caste system, is to not perceive India. The awardees included folks that cared for the plight of others throughout Covid as properly! Jai Bhim! Jai Hind! Thank you. ” Richa shared two footage as properly – one the place she is lighting candles in entrance of footage of Lord Buddha and Babasaheb Ambedkar, and in one other, the place she was seen receiving the award.
Many of her pals congratulated her for the honor. Tillotama Shome wrote: “Salam Richa” while Konkona Sen Sharma said: “Congratulations! I’m great !!! ” Zoya Akhtar dropped a bunch of appreciative emojis in the feedback part.
Richa has all the time expressed her views truthfully. After the Democratic win in the US election, she wrote about the Vice President-elect Kamala Harris: “At about this time in 2016, the world appeared to change in sooner or later. We had been taking pictures the first season of Inside Edge, it was an evening shoot … and demonetisation was introduced! All night time, folks puzzled of what would unfold over the subsequent few months, nervous about needing the new notes whereas making an attempt to work out how to deposit their hard-earned cash (in the type of previous notes) in to the financial institution. ”
“I went to bed at about 8am on the 9th November keeping a watch on the outcome of the U.S election, wondering why it was so close. I woke up at about 3pm to learn that the former host of the Apprentice had been elected to arguably the most powerful office in the world. Something broke me. It didn’t have much to do with politics … it was a strange and saddening realization that several in a country where women outnumbered men, which was the “Greatest Nation”, which exported Hollywood to the rest of the world, still preferred a man (who boasted about grabbing p *** es) over a woman. I remember calling a two friends crying, one being @krnx and the other @ alifazal9 who was shooting in London at the time for V and A. No one could understand why this felt so personal, it made no sense to me either. But perhaps sometimes, really terrible things happen to show us the way. Things do get worse, worse, worst before they get better, you know what I mean? Yes you do. Discussing make me spell it out. “
“Now a Black + Tamil lady goes to be in the White House! Even the cynic + anarchist in me will have a good time. Akka’s bought a foot in the door. Congratulations and thanks! ”
