In a message on social media, he said about the poster of his film ‘Madam Chief Minister’ that it happened unintentionally.
Richa Chadha is playing the lead role in the new film ‘Madam Chief Minister’, which belongs to the lower caste ‘Dalit’ of India, but through her struggle she reaches the post of Chief Minister of a state.
The first poster of the film was released earlier this month. The poster of the film shows Richa Chadha holding a broom.
The first poster of the film was heavily criticized on social media, while the use of the word ‘untouchable’ was also strongly criticized.
However, Richa Chadha also broke his silence over the controversy over the poster, saying, “This is a different learning experience for him.”
He said that the first poster of the film was severely criticized which is justified.
Richa said that the character in his film had resorted to it in just one scenario, but for many it came out as a ‘stereotype of Dalits’.
Although the actress has no role in making the poster of the film, she said that the makers of the poster have taken the criticism on themselves.
He said that the poster makers have realized their mistake and a new poster will be released soon.
