The India trailer of award-winning film 'Masaan' was launched in Mumbai on Friday, giving a glimpse into the dark side of Indian society through the lives of two women.
This Neeraj Ghaywan directorial debut won two awards and a five-minute standing ovation at the 68th Cannes International Film Festival earlier this year.
The trailer shows the lives of two women - on the one hand, there is actress Richa Chadha's character trapped in a MMS scandal by corrupt police officers and there's actress Shweta Tripathi, whose character falls in love with a man from a lower caste
Veteran actor Sanjay Mishra said, "I'm delighted to be associated with a brilliant film like 'Masaan'."
Richa added, "We all have seen the trailer for the first time. We had to watch it twice to understand it. Neeraj had specifically saved all 'masala' for Indian audiences and I think they deserve something special."
'Masaan' is scheduled to hit Indian theatres on July 24.
