Richa Chadha on her special connection with acting guru Barry John
Back when she was a 14-year-old, Richa Chadha wanted to meet acting guru Barry John because "he had trained Shah Rukh Khan."
Finally, he took her on as a student and all those years of working hard under his tutelage culminated in Richa’s brush with Bollywood.
Says Richa, “When I was 14, I wanted to learn acting. I had heard he was SRK’s mentor.” The actress last met her coach along with Mira Nair at the premiere of Salaam Bombay.
A source says, “She meets up with her mentor whenever it is possible. Richa is also a part of Mira Nair’s Reluctant Fundamentalist, whose trailer and poster released at the same event.” Speaking about her bond with Mira and Barry, Richa says, “The connection we share is very strong.”
