Shouldn’t troll those accused in harassment case, says Richa Chadha
NEW DELHI: Actress Richa Chadha has said that people shouldn’t troll or abuse a person who is accused in a sexual harassment case on social media platforms till the time that person isn’t proved guilty or innocent. Richa was interacting with the media at the trailer launch of “Section 375” along with actors Akshaye Khanna, Rahul Bhatt, Meera Chopra, director Ajay Bahl and producer Kumar Mangat Pathak here on Tuesday.
Actress Deepika Padukone has reportedly said she will not work with anyone who has been accused of sexual harassment. This was following reports that she was in talks to star in director Luv Ranjan’s upcoming film. Ranjan had been accused of sexual harassment by an anonymous woman.
When asked Richa whether she will work with a person who has been accused in a sexual harassment case, she said: “Media also attends press conferences which are held by #MeToo accused, so you (media) should also see your own actions. “I feel till the time a person isn’t proved guilty or innocent legally, we shouldn’t form our opinion about them. It’s a social problem and we all have to address it. We shouldn’t troll or abuse the person on social media platforms by forming groups because it’s very complicated.”
