Actress Richa Chadha says she is “very excited” about heading to Morocco for the Marrakech Film Festival 2015, where she will be part of a jury, headed by American film director, producer and screenwriter Francis Ford Coppola who will be the jury president.

A five-time Academy Award winner, Coppola is best known for directing “The Godfather” trilogy and “Apocalypse Now”. An actress who has received critical acclaim for her power-packed performances in films like “Gangs Of Wasseypur” and “Masaan”, Richa is looking forward to discuss cinema with an icon like him.

“I am very excited to be a part of the 15th Marrakech Film Festival as jury member. When I got to know I have been selected to represent India as the jury, I felt humbled and grateful. Coppola will be presiding over the jury and it is such an honour for me to be able to share and discuss cinema with him,” the actress said in a statement.

Earlier, “The Lunchbox” director Ritesh Batra and Anurag Kashyap have been part of the jury at the gala.

Kashyap praised Richa for being the chosen one this year, and tweeted: “@RichaChadha_ on jury with Francis Ford Coppola at Marrakech 2015… way to go Chaddhi Baddi (sic).”
