Neeraj Ghaywan’s Masaan won accolades across the globe, when it released three years ago and on the occasion of the film’s third anniversary, today, Richa Chadha, who has played one of the lead roles in the film confessed that Devi is one of the toughest characters that she’s has ever played.
Talking about the film and her character in it, Richa said, “When we shot Masaan we already knew it was a special film. When Neeraj told me that he wrote the film keeping me in mind, I felt a great deal of responsibility to put my best effort into playing my role. And the love the film received from Cannes to its international release to its Indian release was overwhelming for us as a team. Devi, my character was one of the toughest I have played till date. And I’m proud of the work that everyone put in. Till date the team and I still receive such amazing emails and messages from people around the world who are still discovering the film. It truly has become a gem and after 3 years too the film lives on and continues to, in its own way, reach and affect several people through different emotions.”
Richa will be next seen playing the role of adult star Shakeela in the latter’s biopic, which will be helmed by Indrajit Lankesh.
