Richa Pallod logging in to Kollywood again

After a gap of 9 years, Richa Pallod will be seen in Sathya Prabhas Pinisetty's “Yagavarayinum Naa Kaakka.” Mother of a six-month-old, Richa does not classify this as a “comeback” and says she will continue to be selective about the work she does. “I have never been competitive or courted opportunities, I've only taken up work that came to me, especially if it impressed me,” she said. The actress said she never had to work for a living and her character in 'Yagavarayinum' tempted her to grab the opportunity. “It is a small but vital role. More importantly, I had conviction in it and that is very important for me. I hate stereotypical roles.” Richa rues that not many Indian filmmakers create out-of-the-box characters for women. “I personally don’t like family dramas, but don’t mind playing a mother or a homemaker, provided that character has an identity. Detailing and backstories are so important; only they draw you into the life of a character,” she says, giving the example of Piku. “It is a commercial movie, but so real. And, it touched a chord with audiences.”
