Readers may be aware that Richa Chadha recently was present at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival to promote her movie Masaan. The film directed by Neeraj Ghaywan not only featured in the festival but even won two awards there.
Many international media has appreciated the unconventional Masaan and the film seems to have created a new path for the actress. Richa was invited to the prestigious talk show – Le Grand Journal which is a French nightly news and talk show. The show has interviewed only A-listers like Beyonce, One Direction , Madonna , Katy Perry , Brad Pitt, Robert Pattinson to name a few. Excited about receiving this honour, Richa said, “I am so happy I could represent my country and my people. We discussed a lot of things apart from cinemas. They knew so much about India right from terrorism to the Nirbhaya case. They even spoke about the dowry system and the other harsh binding women have in our society. I couldn’t defend after a point but I did try to change their perception. If my talks are going to make a difference even if it is as small as highlighting grave issues it will be an achievement in itself.”
Interestingly, Richa Chadha is the only Indian actress who has made a name to this show after Aishwarya Rai.
