Richa Chadha has turned to American singer Pink for inspiration. The actor features in a video of singer Shibani Kashyap's new single, Wannabe Free, that encourages people to break free from the shackles of social media. Parallels can be drawn between the number and Pink's Stupid Girls (2006), which condemns sexism.

Chadha reveals that a scene from her number is inspired by a still from the track. "Pink's music is iconic. I love this particular song. It is empowering in its attempt to urge women to think about beauty, vanity and social media. A particular moment in her song, I thought, would make for an appropriate fit in our number too. We've rehashed it to suit our track," she says. Chadha hopes to inspire women to be watchful of the "disastrous impact" that social media can have. "Our generation spends more time online than any other. So, it is important to educate in a fun way."
