Watch trailer of Richa Chadha starrer Madam Chief Minister here
The trailer of upcoming Hindi film ‘Madam Chief Minister’ has been released online. Richa Chadha plays the lead role in the film directed by Subhash Kapoor. It is a political drama loosely based on the life of former Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh and Bahujan Samaj Party supremo Mayawati. The film film is scheduled for theatrical release on 22 January 2021.
Last day, when the makers released the first look poster, it was met with severe criticism in social medias. In the poster, Richa can be seen holding a broom, covered in muck. The tagline reads, “Untouchable, unstoppable.” The poster has received backlash for being misrepresenting the Dalit community, reinforcing stereotypes and for not casting a Dalit actor in the lead role.
‘Madam Chief Minister’ is about a Dalit woman’s rise from humble backgrounds to become the State’s CM. Manav Kaul, Akshay Oberoi, Saurabh Shukla and Subhrajyoti Barat will be seen essaying major roles in the film.
