So January 21 is celebrated as National Hug Day, not in India, but in the United States – but that did not stop actress Richa Chadha from showing some love to her fans.

NOW I WANNA DO THIS EVERY YEAR! May be next year you can join me 💕☮️ Smile. Spread love! प्यार बाँटते चलो! ❤️ Thanks Sagar, UJ and Sajid! You supported my madness 💕 . . PS – I took a lift, had come in a car…from which we were documenting this! #NationalHugDay #Hug #Love #Peace #SpreadLove #BeTheChange

It was apparently the rise in ‘extremism’ and ‘rising awareness about social causes globally’, that led to this experiment by the actress, who took to the the streets of Mumbai, giving people ‘Free Hugs’. The actress took time out for the experiment despite the busy promotion schedule for her upcoming film Panga.

Richa Chadha decided to go hang out at Carter Road, Bandra, holding a hand-painted ‘Free Hugs’ sign. She wore dark glasses as she didn’t want to be recognised, but just wanted to give out hugs as a citizen and not a celebrity. Although a few fans eventually did recognise her, she gave out hugs to strangers and passers by with ease.
