Richa Chadha and Ali Fazal’s wedding images are all over our social media feeds and we aren’t complaining. The couple has been talking about their wedding since 2020 now and it has finally happened. But there is a slight twist in this tale. As it turns out Richa and Ali have been married for over two years now!
A source close to Richa and Ali spilled all the tea on a call with POPxo and shared, “There are no wedding rituals at their wedding. They are just celebrating their union that happened 2 and a half years ago. They did a court marriage and they were supposed to celebrate in April 2020 but that didn’t happen due to the pandemic. The date got pushed for about 2-3 times so finally, they did it. They have done mehendi, sangeet and reception will take place in Mumbai. However, they have been legally married for two and a half years.”
Now that’s a big surprise!
Richa and Ali first met on the sets of their film Fukrey in 2012 and became friends. The duo continued being friends for several years until rumours of them being in a relationship started doing rounds in 2017.
In an interview with a leading bridal magazine, Richa confessed she was the first one to drop the L-bomb. She shared, “We were at my house watching Chaplin, the 1992 British-American biographical comedy-drama starring Robert Downey Jr. I was happy to see him enjoy the movie and was grateful to have found someone with similar tastes. That is when I said, ‘This is really sweet, I love you’ to him.”
Richa and Ali made their first public appearance as a couple at the world premiere of Ali’s film Victoria and Abdul. Soon after, they moved in together and have been giving us #CoupleGoals ever since.
Well, Richa and Ali surely know how to keep a secret. Here’s wishing the couple joy and happiness for the rest of their lives together!
