Bollywood actress Richa Chadha on Thursday, September 20 took to Twitter to share her experience of meeting a "racist officer" at passport control while exiting Georgia.

"Met a racist AF officer at the passport control, while exiting Georgia. Slammed my passport on the desk, twice...muttered under her breath in Georgian, yelled and asked me to hurry. Sad that people like her are the last ones we perhaps see on exiting the country," Richa wrote.

Chadha also mentioned meeting "the gentlest cabbie" in the Georgian capital, Tbilisi. "He was so sweet, he changed my experience of the city, refused a tip, smiled throughout. We communicated only through gestures but I could feel his heart," she tweeted.

While replying to a Twitter user who commented on her tweet, Chadha also said, "Racism, bigotry, sexism, casteism, classism are all relics of the previous century... they are tacky. One must call it out whenever possible. I agree, people in general are lovely like I said before. This lady was the devil though.”

Richa has been visiting Georgia to shoot for the second instalment of Excel Entertainments "Inside Edge". She will reprise her role as Mumbai Maverick team owner Zarina Malik.

The show also stars Vivek Anand Oberoi and Angad Bedi.

Apart from this, Richa will also be seen in Anubhav Sinha's 'Abhi Toh Party Shuru Hui Hai', Ashwini Iyer Tiwari's ‘Panga' and a biopic on southern actress Shakeela.
