Masaan was written for her who would have thought that the heartbreaking story of Devi and Deepak would resonate for so long after Masaan had released. The film found a new surge of love on OTT platforms upon its release and has over time achieved a cult status amongst fans. As Richa Chadha, Vicky Kaushal and Neeraj Ghaywan celebrate four years of their memorable collaboration, Chadha fondly remembers the film as an opportunity of a lifetime.
She says, “The film was offered to me in 2012 immediately after Wasseypur; Neeraj was an assistant on the film and that’s how we got to know each other better. Neeraj had written this part keeping me in mind. It’s the highest form of compliment for an actor when they are offered a tailor made part, when the maker has envisioned you in it even before there’s anything on paper. It will always be my most special film.”
