Richa Chadha is Bholi Punjaban, but she’s been part of several epic films – like Gangs of Wasseypur. Now, she is making her second foray into the world of digital entertainment after the Amazon Prime Original Inside Edge. Richa Chadha now directs the sci-fi comedy set in 2025, when the cost of vegetables have gone sky high. Ali Fazal will also be part of this short film.

The world itself has devolved because of rapid human development. The film will be a take on pollution and environmental abuse. Little is known about the film but Richa has directed the short film. Richa had earlier made the short filom, Khoon Aali Chithi, that became a Royal Stag Barrel Select Large Short Films project. Richa turned producer with that one and she has now turned director with this sci-fi comedy film.

Richa becomes one of the few mainstream names that are now looking at web series and short films as an experiment for their newer ideas. Many Bollywood actors and actresses have worked in quirky short films like Jackie Shroff and Neena Gupta in Khujli. Jackie Shroff also worked in a Royal Stag Large Short Films film, Shunya, which was widely appreciated for its gritty portrayal of the Mumbai street and crime life.
