The actor, who was the breakout star of the film, played Deepak, a lower caste boy who falls in love with an upper caste girl (Tripathi Sharma). He shared stills from 'Masaan' on his Instagram page. "It has been seven years! Thank you from my heart," Kaushal, 34, posted.

'Masaan' was written by Varun Grover. It was an Indo-French co-production, backed by Drishyam Films, Macassar Productions, Phantom Films, Sikhya Entertainment, Arte France Cinema, and Pathe Productions. Though Ghaywan hasn't followed up 'Masaan' with any feature film, the director has received praise for his work across formats: short film 'Juice', Netflix series 'Sacred Games' and the anthology 'Ajeeb Daastaans', in which he helmed the segment 'Geeli Pucchi', featuring Konkona Sen Sharma and Aditi Rao Hydari.
