Why Richa Chadha will miss Busan International Film Festival?
Richa Chada won’t be attending the screening of MASAAN at Busan Film Festival due to her work commitments.
Says the actress, “MASAAN is a film which is closest to my heart. I took a lot of time to detach the character of Devi from me. Even now im not sure whether I have totally phased that out. Hence not being able to go as a support to festivals like this for a movie of this caliber is rather disappointing. I wish the team of Masaan @ Busaan best wishes.”
It’s believed that while Richa was extremely keen to visit the festival along with her team she has an active shooting schedule on going for CABARET and she does not want the shoot to go haywire on her account. Richa is shooting her first ever song for her next movie. A set is said to be made in a studio in suburbs and Richa is shooting round the clock.
It can be recalled that Richa was in tears when the audience gave the film a standing ovation for about 15 minutes at Cannes. She was looking forward to travel to more festivals with the film because she likes to meet people and to know their reaction first hand.
Apart from the screening, Richa will miss a chance to connect with her mentor Anurag Kashyap who is part of the jury for the New Currents competition in the Asian Film Festival section.
