Actress Richa Chadha spent Monday responding to trolls - not the best way to start a week but hey, it can only get better from here. Richa was at the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne last week and, at a press conference with Pakistani actor Fawad Khan, answered a question about cultural similarities on his behalf. Her quote - reproduced at the end of this story - was condensed by trolls into this takeaway:
 
There's more where that came from.
Richa, 29, responded to some of the comments.
 
 
This to a troll who appeared to thank her for 'showing South Indians their place':
 
 
 
Here's what Richa said when Fawad was asked how Pakistan's culture is different from India's: "You know we were colonised by the British for a really long time. I am sorry if I am offending anybody here, but if you look at worldwide history, every time the British left an empire, they divided it. Whether it was North Korea or South Korea, then there was Germany. It is a part of the strategy to keep political unrest to sort of maintain a global kind of, I am sorry but your question to me doesn't make sense because I will have far more in common with Fawad because I am from the North of India than I will have with somebody who is a Tam Brahm or maybe Malayali or from the North East. I think we should avoid stereotyping in questioning or creating some kind of contradiction here because the whole intent and especially art does not really have any borders."
She received a round of applause from everyone present.
Richa Chadha, last seen in Sarbjit, is currently making Pooja Bhatt's film Cabaret.
