Bollywood actor Richa Chaddha has revealed she is a trained kathak dancer and is now learning belly dance in the ongoing lockdown amid coronavirus pandemic.She shared a short video of herself belly dancing in front of the mirror.
Richa also posted a long note alongside in which she wrote, “Dance warm up . Today in an interview I got asked why people don’t know that I am a trained kathak dancer, or why I don’t dance in many films…My response to that was I am learning a new art form to satisfy my creative urges… with no goal in mind… One must just learn without expectations… without thinking about how that learning could come in handy in a film, or at a family gathering, or anything for that matter.”
Her note took a rather philosophical turn as she wrote, “Who knows ? Looking at a beautiful painting could make me a better actor, reading amazing poetry and literature could make me a better actor, learning how to sing has definitely made me a better actor… it’s nice to do things just for the sake of experience! After all what is life if not a series of experiences? Inspiration can come from anywhere ! #lifelessons #RichaChadha #tribalFusion #dance #bellydance #learning #lockdown #Quarantine #actorslife.”

Fans were also impressed with the post and the long note. One of them wrote, “Ur dance …fabulous & ur caption.. Life is all about series of experiments nd experiences.” Another one commented, “Yes pls do Tamil films to explore more! We need to see good actors lyk you.”
