Actress Richa Chadha has been appointed as a member of the Advisory Board of Women in Film and Television India (WIFT). “I am someone who has come to this industry without a godfather and it hasn’t been easy. The industry at this point is a much more organized workspace and is much safer to work in than before, but there’s much more to be done. There’s this impression that shows the business is not a good place for women. Everyone in my extended family was apprehensive when I joined the film Industry.

“But 10 years on, I have worked on some path-breaking projects, with talented artists and am proud of my filmography and struggle. Now a movie sets are filled with women and it’s important to create this gender-neutral environment if we want to say balanced stories and even progress as a society,” Richa said. WIFT is a platform that supports women filmmakers and technicians through various programs and mentorship schemes. The Indian chapter of WIFT is affiliated to the global WIFT organization based in Washington DC. (IANS)
