first_imgNew Delhi: The much-feted Masaan won Richa Chadha wide acclaim but the actor says she does not identify with her character in the film because she is essentially a rebel. In Neeraj Ghaywan’s Masaan, which completed four years of release on recently, Richa plays Devi, who struggles to shake off the smalltown stigma towards pre-marital sex. Vicky Kaushal and Shweta Tripathi played the film’s other protagonists, Deepak and Shalu, who attempt to transcend the restrictions of their casteist society.

I have, despite all the challenges in life, fought and created a space for myself. In her own way Devi also fights, but I feel she stumbles a lot more than I ever would. That is where she gets stuck in life,” Richa said. The 32-year-old actor feels had the film released today, it would have received better distribution and promotional facilites. “The true test of a film is when it becomes memorable. That’s why we like old songs.”last_img
