Actor Richa Chadha who wore a t-shirt featuring Dr. BR Ambedkar, the economist and politician, in October 2020, was slammed by a social media user. He took to Twitter and wrote that “Dalits actors are meritless – Richa Chadha. Richa Chadha ne Ambedkar ki photo lagi t-shirt sirf Ambedkar ko bechne ke liye pehni thi baki uske ander Brahmanwaad ka zeher puri tarah bhara hua hai”. It means that “Richa has used BR Ambedkar’s pic to sell the t-shirt, she is against Brahmans and has hatred against them”.
