Actress Richa Chadha, who received applauses for her internationally-acclaimed film 'Masaan' feels that 'foreign stamp' on a film is not needed to gain respect from Indian audience.
"I don't think Indian audience give respect to a film or an actor on the basis of any foreign stamp. They respect the artist individually," Richa told in an interview.
In 'Masaan', which bagged two prestigious awards at the Cannes International Film Festival this year, the actress played the role of a daughter ridden with guilt of a sexual encounter ending in a tragedy and how she overcomes all hurdles and changes her fate.
Further Richa says that she credits Anurag Kashyap's 'Gangs of Wasseypur' for getting her into spotlight.
"I did 'Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye!' in 2008, but my role was not pivotal in the film. After that I didn't look for work in the film industry for some time. For me, my first step into showbiz was with 'Gangs of Wasseypur'. Since then, I'm getting good work," she added.
Richa will be next seen in a glamorous avatar for Pooja Bhatt's 'Cabaret' which also stars Gulshan Devaiah .
