Richa Chadda’s ‘Masaan’ receives standing ovation at Cannes

SHOWmasaanDirector Neeraj Ghaywan’s ‘Masaan’ that premiered in the UnCertain Regard section of the annual movie gala received a 5-minute long standing ovation at the Cannes International Film Festival, leaving starrer Richa Chadha teary-eyed.

The movie is an Indo-French co-production produced by Manish Mundra, Macassar Productions, Phantom Films, Sikhya Entertainment, Arte France Cinema and Pathe productions.

Richa tweeted her thanks to all as did Ghaywan and Shweeta Pripathi who also stars in the film.

Ghaywan had said before his trip to Cannes, that he was always curious about what a man who encounters death in his day-to-day life thinks about mortality, and that’s where the idea for ‘Masaan’ was born.
