Neeraj Ghaywan Reveals Mail That Martin Scorsese Shared About Masaan
The 2015 film, Masaan, was a proud moment for Indian cinema. Directed by Neeraj Ghaywan and written by Varun Grover, the film stars actors, Richa Chadha, Shweta Tripathi and Vicky Kaushal in the lead roles. The five re-united with film critic Rajeev Masand over video call to reminisce their memories of the film and spoke about everything that went down during the shooting of the movie.
However, the thing that got everyone’s attention was when Ghaywan revealed that legendary filmmaker Martin Scorsese sent him an email praising him about the film. One of the film’s producers showed the film to Scorsese and the director sent Ghaywan a mail right away.
“I was finally able to screen your film Masaan and wanted to congratulate you on a powerful debut feature,” the mail read.
What was surprising is that none of the people on the call knew about the mail. “Now, you tell us!” Richa Chadha stated while the others looked elated as well.
