Noted Bollywood actress Richa Chadha has revealed why she decided to wear a wig instead of chopping off her hair for her look in her upcoming movie ‘Madam Chief Minister’. She made a post in which she mentioned it was because she was supposed to get married to her beau Ali Fazal earlier last year before the COVID-19 pandemic hit.
Her wedding was earlier scheduled in April 2020. Her post said, “There is a cute little anecdote behind why I had to wear a wig. The director ideally wanted me to chop my hair and I was ready for it. He wanted a powerful, fuss-free haircut that suited the character. But it was just around then that the date for our marriage got fixed.”
She further said, “I realised I would have a mushroom cut by the time it was April 2020, if I had chopped off my hair for the part. Something I have hated since childhood is the mushroom cut. The director very kindly consented for me to use a wig, these are the various wigs we tried for Madam CM.” She also included pictures of some of the different wigs she tried out before her final look was confirmed.
