Richa Chadha is the latest to open up about the seamier side of Bollywood.  “‘Bollywood’, an imaginary address between Bandra and Goregaon. Here when people need you to do something that’s detrimental to you/your health/your career, they’ll tell you how good it is for you and be confident that you’ll believe them. I used to believe them when I was naive,” wrote the Madam Chief Minister actor in a long Instagram post on Tuesday. She was also critical of the media’s approach to the issue of nepotism in the film industry. “Some press peeps will write long pieces about how nepotism ruins the industry while creepily following every pre-pubescent with a famous last name, and dissing any self-made professional in their mediocre writing, on the pretext of ‘freedom of expression’,” she posted. “Must reform faster, if it has to survive the onslaught of OTT, VR and everything in the future,” she cautioned. Richa and her rumoured beau Ali Fazal launched a production house, Pushing Buttons Studios, in March this year.
