Madam Chief Minister: Richa Chadha opted to wear a wig instead of chopping her hair due to wedding plans

Achieving the right look for a political drama is key to creating a more authentic film. And if the first glimpses of Richa Chadha’s Madam Chief Minister is anything to go by, one would say that director Subhash Kapoor cracked the right vibe for the film. Word has it that on the making stage, Kapoor tried close to 20 looks on Chadha before finalising the current one for the film. There’s an idea behind the genesis of the look for Richa that’s delved into in detail in the film itself.

Week on week, the actress along with her team of stylists tried different variations before achieving the current look. Even in the trailer, one may notice that the look evolves as Tara gains power and clout over the years. Talking about it, Richa says, “There is a cute little anecdote behind why I had to wear a wig. The director ideally wanted me to chop my hair and I was ready for it. He wanted a powerful, fuss free haircut that suited the character. But it was just around then that the date for our marriage got fixed. I realised I would have a mushroom cut by the time it was April 2020, if I had chopped off my hair for the part. Something I have hated since childhood is the mushroom cut. The director very kindly consented for me to use a wig, these are the various wigs we tried for Madam CM.”


With Richa playing the protagonist in the film set in UP,  Madam Chief Minister is about a woman who choose to debunk the men and society, that tried to shackle, demean and defeat her. The film also features Saurabh Shukla, Manav Kaul, Akshay Oberoi and Shubhrajyoti in pivotal roles.

A Kangra Talkies production, written and directed by Subhash Kapoor, produced by Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Naren Kumar & Dimple Kharbanda is set to release in cinemas on 22nd January 2021.
