Richa Chadha, who won the Outstanding Achievement Award for Love Sonia at London Indian Film Festival, is currently gearing up for the biopic based on South adult star Shakeela by Indrajit Lankesh. She has delivered second-to-none performances in movies like Fukrey, Gangs of Wasseypur and Masaan. On the third anniversary of Masaan, Chadha shed some light on her most difficult role as Devi and said "When we shot Masaan we already knew it was a special film. When Neeraj told me that he wrote the film keeping me in mind, I felt a great deal of responsibility to put my best effort into playing my role," in an interview with Bollyworm.

"It truly has become a gem and after 3 years to the film lives on and continues to, in its own way, reach and affect several people through different emotions."
