"Thankfully when we started the film we barely knew each other previously. So when we started shooting, it was a thoroughly professional relationship. Akshaye is a brilliant actor who knows his character like the back of his hand. I play a public prosecutor in the film and Akshay is the private defence lawyer and we are at the two opposite sides of the case," Richa said.
"Section 375" is a courtroom drama where Richa plays the public prosecutor who is fighting the case of a rape victim Anjali Dangle, played by Meera Chopra.
The actress said that she needed energy to have an edge in competitive spirit and repartee between the two characters.
"The interaction hence was minimal on sets between the shots as the chemistry on camera needed to be tense given their past," she added.
Directed by Ajay Bahl, "Section 375" also features Meera Chopra. The film is scheduled to release on September 13.
