“It feels amazing, good. I am really proud, lucky and feeling humble to represent our country. I never expected this to actually happen. I, in fact, reassured with them. They just called that would you like to be part of the jury and I immediately said yes. I haven't been to the festival but I have heard a lot about it and I am excited to go because it's in a very beautiful place. Also it would be great to meet and share the stage with such a big filmmaker,” said the actress.

And what makes her elated is the fact that she is the youngest jury member from India till date for the prestigious international film festival that had the names like Sharmila Tagore, Anurag Kashyap and THE LUNCHBOX director Ritesh Batra on the esteemed panel. “I never thought I will get it at such a young age. I am possibly one of the youngest members of this festival. So it's really fantastic. They could recognize that there is talent in India beyond mainstream films in Bollywood. So, I am quite happy and fortunate.”

Ask Richa how she is gearing up for the festival and also to meet Coppola and she says, “I am going to prepare myself by watching some good flicks. Then, I am also working out on outfits and will narrow down on it in few days. Probably, I will go for an Indian look. I'll meet the filmmaker for the first time at Marrakech and I am looking forward to it.” 

What really attracted to become part of the prestigious festival? “I think I will get to learn so much by watching good movies. I am going to be interacting with some of the best people's in the business for films. Moreover, I love travelling, knowing about different film cultures and experiencing cinema. So, it's a very prestigious opportunity.”

On a parting note, ask Richa if she is ready for Hollywood and she says, “I would love to get into Hollywood. Who wouldn't? But it totally depends on the opportunities I get.”
