Richa Chadda to play mafia don in Fukrey

After a power-packed performance in Gangs of Wasseypur, actress Richa Chadda will now be playing the role of a mafia don in Farhan Akhtar's next home production Fukrey.

Richa recently won a lot of acclaim for the role of motor-mouth Nagma Khatoon in Anurag Kashyap's Gangs Of WAsseypur series. "Yes, Richa Chadda has been signed for Fukrey," producer Ritesh Sidhwani said.

Richa plays a very significant role in the film. She will be seen playing a mafia don, and her character will be called Boli Punjaban. 

TV actor Pulkit Samrat, who made his debut in Bollywood with Bittoo Boss, will be playing a lead role in the film.

Fukrey is a mad cap comedy coming from the Farhan Akhtar-Ritesh Sidhwani banner 'Excel Entertainment'. The title comes from the Delhi slang, which means good-for-nothing. 

Directed by debutant Mrigdeep Singh Lamba, the film will revolve around Delhi-based youngsters and their life in high school and college.

Meanwhile, Richa will also be testing international waters as she has bagged a Mira Nair short film. The series comprises many short stories set across the globe and includes other star performers like Oscar-winning actor Ben Kingsley.
