Richa Chadha, Ali Fazal Turn Producers



Richa Chadha and Ali Fazal

Richa Chadha and Ali Fazal  have  together launched  a production house named Pushing Buttons

The most marriageable   couple  in Bollywood has now joined hands to  produce films.  Richa  Chadha and  Ali Fazal  have   together launched  a production house named Pushing Buttons, which seems an  apt  title  considering both  the actors have constantly displayed an  adventurous spirit as actors.

 Their  debut film as co-producers  is  entitled  Girls Will Be Girls directed by a  young   female filmmaker Shuchi Talati whose short  film Mae & Ash  about an  open relationship  fetched her  good critical  responses.  Girls Will Be  Girls  is  described as  a  “a coming-of-age, sexual awakening film set in a conservative boarding school in India.”

 While it is  not clear  yet if Richa  Chadha  or  her  boyfriend  have an acting  role  to play  in their production, a friend  of  Richa Chadha does reveal that  she would have  an ACTIVE  to  play in their  production.

“Knowing Richa  she wouldn’t have  turned producer  unless she was  sure  of  being hands-on. Both  Ali and Richa’s are passionate  about cinema and promoting new talent,”says  the friend.

 One also gathers that  all their  joint productions need not feature them as  actors.

“The idea is to  nurture new talent that may  not  have access to filmmaking through  normal mainstream  routes,” says the source.
