Fast emerging as an icon for the youth because of her unflinching honesty, Richa Chadha recently took to the streets for an adorable ‘social experiment’.
Despite being busy with the promotions of Panga and other pre-production work, she tried an interesting initiative on International Hug Day.

. . . . …set out to share some 💓 because there’s so much hate in 🌍 atm! Like Martin Luther King said, “Darkness cannot be driven out by darkness, only light can do that …” I hugged strangers and it was MAGIC! काको you see in the red sari, not only hugged me, she kissed me, and then proceeded to KISS MY FRIEND (the reason her 📱shook) who was helping 🥰🤗😄Made people hug each other too… you see love is contagious ! NOW I WANNA DO THIS EVERY YEAR! May be next year you can join me 💕☮️ Smile. Spread love! प्यार बाँटते चलो! ❤️ Thanks Sagar, UJ and Sajid! You supported my madness 💕 . . PS – I took a lift, had come in a car…from which we were documenting this! #NationalHugDay #Hug #Love #Peace #SpreadLove #BeTheChange
At a time when we’re seeing both the rise in extremism as well as raising awareness about social causes globally, the actress decided to go hang out at Carter Road, Bandra to holding a hand-painted ‘Free Hugs’ sign. She wore dark glasses as she didn’t want to be recognized but just wanted to give out hugs as a citizen and not a celebrity. Although a few fans eventually did recognize her, she gave out hugs to strangers and passers-by with ease.
