Richa Chadha, who was last seen in the Omung Kumar-directorial Sarbjit, recently did an intimate photo shoot at her Mumbai residence, with photographer Shivaji Sen, known for his candid photography.
Richa's photos are mostly in black-and-white and the camera captures the talented actress with an almost intrusive gaze.
Posing with the irresistible charm that can be rivaled only by a seductress from a '50s noir movie, Chadha looks almost poetic in the pictures, to put it mildly.
The entire photo essay is a refreshing break from generic, airbrushed photo shoots conducted by fashion glossies (as was evident in Priyanka Chopra's recent shoot done by Maxim) as it gives a rare peek into the inner world and vulnerabilities of a Hindi film heroine.
Here, have a look at the stunning pictures.
