Mumbai, Nov 22 (IANS) Actress Richa Chadha, who is gearing up to attend the 15th edition of the Marrakech International Film Festival, says she wants to hold a special screening of her internationally acclaimed film “Masaan” for Oscar-winning Hollywood filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola.

Coppola, best known for directing films like “The Godfather” trilogy and “Apocalypse Now”, will be heading the festival’s jury this year that also includes the “Fukrey” actress.

“’Masaan’ is a very special film for me. I would love to show it to Coppola, because it was truly world cinema,” she added.

Directed by Neeraj Ghaywan, “Masaan”, which released on July 24 in India, was screened in the Un Certain Regard section at the Cannes International Film Festival earlier this year.

The film won the FIPRESCI Prize in the Un Certain Regard section and a ‘Promising Future’ prize for debut films.
