Mumbai: Actress Richa Chadha, who hails from a non-filmy background, says she feels "ashamed" when somebody calls her an "outsider" in Bollywood.

"I really feel ashamed when people use this word 'outsider' for people like us. I feel the word 'outsider' shouldn't even exist in the Indian dictionary. I am a citizen of India, I was born here, I pay my tax here so then how am I an outsider," Richa said.

"It's so sad that we have to use this term for people who are not born to a film family. It's a term very commonly used by everyone because it exists and that's a sad state of affair. Even though we are Indians, we are an outsider. Why is it so," she wondered.

Richa feels it is not easy for actors to get access in Bollywood if they don't have any filmy background.

"It's very difficult, it's extremely difficult... Apart from Shah Rukh Khan and Akshay Kumar who have made it big, how many people are not from the (film) business? That's why I have great respect for people like Ranveer Singh, Irrfan and whosoever has made it on their own."

On the career front, Richa will next be seen in Fukrey 2.
