Actress Richa Chadha’s Madam Chief Minister Trailer is out and Produced by T-Series Films and Kangra Talkies, the film projects Richa Chadha as a political leader who defies all odds to scale new heights of political success in India’s most populous state, Uttar Pradesh.
The Madam Chief Minister Trailer opens with a disclaimer that the film is not based on reality, but it is hard not to miss the resemblance between the fictional story and the story of UP’s former CM Mayawati. Like many ‘inspired’ Bollywood biopics, it is evident that this too will be a hagiography.
Madam Chief Minister Movie is helmed by Subhash Kapoor who has previously directed the Jolly LLB franchise. Kapoor used to work as a political reporter in the 90s, so it seems like he has utilized his research from the era for the film.
Talking about her role, Richa Chadha said in a statement, “This is such an incredible story of an unlikely leader who defies all norms, all societal expectations to become a chief minister like no other. I’m extremely grateful I got entrusted with such a layered character. As actors, such amazing scripts are hard to come by. I have learned a lot about Indian society and politics via Madam Chief Minister Movie. I sincerely hope the audience enjoys it as much as we have.”
