The movie, which features powerhouse performers like Richa Chadha and Sanjay Mishra, apart from newcomers Vicky Kaushal and Shweta Tripathi, follows the stories of four people from a small Indian town and how they fit into the moralities.

'Masaan' will be presented on July 1 evening by Ghaywan and the star cast of the film to the festival delegates personally.

"It’s a matter of pride to open the festival with such a prestigious and worthy film. 'Masaan' is just the beginning; the festival has a lot in store for film delegates this year," Manoj Srivastava, the festival's strategic consultant, said in a statement.

“Masaan" is an official entry in the festival and will compete for the Indian Showcase Awards, which will be held in Mumbai in September.
