Richa also becomes the only Bollywood actor to have her hand written message featured in a unique book called The House of Commons Book of Tribute to The Late Nelson Mandela. The book contains hand written messages for former President of South Africa by prominent people including former US President Barack Obama, former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan and leading international business and community leaders, sports, music and film stars.
 
David Beckham, Sir Paul McCartney, Sir Richard Branson, Maya Angelou, Russell Crowe, Chris Rock, Kylie Minogue, Will Smith are amongst the host of stars who have written meaningful messages in the book. The book will soon be published and will be made available globally. The proceeds from sales in each country will go towards fighting child poverty in that country. The book is a major tool to help continue Mandela’s mission to end child poverty and racial intolerance.

Nic Careem, the founder of The House of Commons Book of Tribute extended his gratitude towards Richa.
Sharing her happiness, Richa said: “I met Nic when I was in London recently. He has been working really hard to get together this amazingly conceptualised book which is a homage to one of the world’s biggest iconic figures, not just in the world of politics but also as a human being.” 

Richa further added that everyone has heard and learnt a great deal about Mandela and what he contributed during his time for human right issues across the world especially in the African continent. 

“His struggle as a world renowned leader to fight for rights of downtrodden people of his race has made him a legendary inspiring figure. To embody his contribution and to have heartfelt messages by such accomplished people is a great way to know how and what people thought and continue to think of him even today. I’m happy to be part of this tribute the proceeds of which will be given towards a campaign to end poverty,” she added.
