"Gangs Of Wasseypur" fame actress Richa Chadda, who has carved a niche for herself in the Hindi film industry, didn't mind utilising her free time to do a play because she feels the medium enhances her acting skills.
"When you have two to three free months and you want to improve as an actor... it's (play) a good way to keep your craft alive. You get a chance to have live interaction with the audience," the actress, who essays the role of a married Delhi woman in the play, told IANS.
She especially enjoyed performing in the capital as her family members and friends are here.
"It was nice. I always wanted to perform on home ground. My family and friends came to see it," said Richa, who is now based in Mumbai.
She has been a part of many plays in the past, but she considers "Baghdad Ka Ghulam" as the most special.
"It is special because I was spotted in it and got cast in 'Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye!'," she said.
"It's a political thriller loosely based on the classic story of 'Devdas'. We have just started shooting in Lucknow and I am glad to be a part of it," she said.
Richa was also seen on the popular TV show "24", produced by Bollywood actor Anil Kapoor, last year and says it was "great fun".
But she doesn't want to take up TV projects.
"I did a cameo on the show. It's difficult to give so much time to television when you are committed to film projects. TV takes a lot of time. That's the only reason why I don't do television," she said.
