Richa Chadha recently braved and came out in the open about the various harsh realities of the glamorous industry. Her strong and brave stance to speak about in acceptance of the existence of eating disorders as a straggly for many was something social media was abuzz with.
Her revelations at the talk about her struggle as a young actress and the many transformations that she was asked to do to look better only show us the nonacceptance of certain kind of looks in the industry and opens up a discussion of what "perfection" means to many.
Richa who addressed these many struggles and issues, did o as she was invited by TedX talks in Delhi to speak as a young influencer and she strongly felt the platform was perfect to ignite a conversation about a disorder which has so little acknowledgement for and perhaps help stir a conversation to help others who suffer from it. In India, eating disorder exist but the terminology and its consequences are still unknown to many.
