'Women face discrimination even in small decisions'

Actor Richa Chadha, who is playing a pivotal role in the upcoming web-series 'Inside Edge', says that she feels discriminated against as a woman in Indian society.

Asked if she experiences any gender-based struggle in the film industry, Richa said, "No, I do not blame Bollywood. But to be honest, as a woman, you have to take all your discriminations based on what men think, right?

"You feel discriminated when realising that even small decisions of daily life (are) controlled by men... for example, as a girl you cannot wear short clothes while travelling by public transport."

She added: "So, when you realise that you have to take these small decisions keeping in mind what men think, you know you are in a position of disadvantage. Since Bollywood is in India, where the society limits women's choices like this, why should we blame only the industry?"

In 'Inside Edge', Richa is playing the role of an actor who owns a cricket team and is trying hard to protect it from corruption and match-fixing.

'Inside Edge' will be live streaming on Amazon Prime Video from July 10.
