Richa Chadda was approached for 'B.A. Pass' before Shilpa Shukla
'B.A. Pass' is an erotic human drama, also featuring Shadab Kamal in the lead.

Mumbai: Actress Shilpa Shukla was always the first choice for 'B.A. Pass'. Director Ajay Bahl wasn't sure if she would have taken it up after a debut like 'Chak De! India', and that's when he approached Richa Chadda. But the deal was eventually sealed with Shilpa.

"I always had Shilpa in my mind, but she was established by then. Before approaching Shilpa, I approached Richa as she was raw," Bahl told IANS.

"At the same time, Richa was offered 'Gangs Of Wasseypur' and she told me about it. I asked her to go ahead with 'Gangs...' as it was a huge break for her. Then things fell in place and I approached Shilpa," he added.

In between, Shipla was also appproached for 'Gangs Of Wasseypur', which went on to receive critical acclaim at national and international platforms. But she chose to do 'B.A. Pass'.

"I was offered 'Gangs Of Wasseypur', but I was not prepared at that point of time. Then eventually I did 'B.A. Pass' and Richa did 'Gangs Of Wasseypur'," she said.

Shilpa has shot several bold scenes for the movie, and admits, "I can't limit myself as an actress".

"I liked the script and I was convinced and took the challenge of this character which is completely different from me," she said.

'B.A. Pass' is an erotic human drama, also featuring Shadab Kamal in the lead.

Presented and distributed by Bharat Shah, the movie is slated to release on July 12.
