New Delhi, June 27 -- Actor Richa Chadha, whose film Masaan has received a lot of appreciation, was overjoyed when Hollywood actor Marion Cotillard mentioned the film in one of her Instagram posts recently.
"Marion is one of Richa's favourite actors and she loves watching her films. Richa was so excited when she posted her film poster. Marion has really been supporting her film Masaan and Richa is sure that this will help spread more awareness about it," says a source, close to the actor.
The 26-year-old met the actor, who starred in the film Inception, when she was in Paris last time for the promotion of her film, which was screened at the Cannes International Film Festival in May this year.
She was personally invited by Cotillard for a dinner hosted by one of the fashion magazines in Paris.
"She (Marion Cotillard) is one of the best actors in the world, and has been so generous by extending support. My director Neeraj (Ghaywan) actually gave me some of her movies to watch as research for my character in Masaan. And when I met her at Cannes, I told her that ... this is very special for all of us. I feel blessed," says Richa.
