Generally, Actresses don’t dare to talk openly about the projects they have turned down for various reasons. However, one actress shows she wouldn’t hesitate to speak out her mind.

Richa Gangopadhyay declares she has turned down Balayya’s upcoming film ‘Jayasimha’ which is being directed by Boyapati Seenu. “I have rejected Balakrishna’s film after just 20-minutes narration,” says the actress, who claims to be having her own set of rules and would never compromise on any aspects while signing projects.

After the success of ‘Mirchi’, Richa signed only one film and that’s ‘Bhai’ opposite Nagarjuna. Apart from Balakrishna’s film, she was approached for second heroine in ‘Atharintiki Daredi’, female lead in Venkatesh’s Shadow and Vishnu starrer ‘Doosukeltha’ and many other projects. She turned down all of them for reasons best known to her.

Critics say, The problem is with Richa’s attitude and the suitability aspect (more eligible for Second Heroine and less eligible for Female Lead). Usually, She gets to play only second fiddle in films with hotshots Heroes and main lead in projects with upcoming or 50-plus heroes. Contrary to this, Richa wishes to play female lead opposite young stars and avoid aged heroes. Of course, Nag is an exception. Thanks to his handsome looks in the 50s!
