Although, lockdown weddings and engagements have become a kind of trend as we have seen a lot of weddings in the past few months like Rana Dauggubati-Miheeka Bajaj, Hardik Pandya-Natasa Stankovic, Yuzvendra Chahal-Dhanashree Sharma and many more. Now, Richa Chadha has opened up about why she doesn't want to get married in these conditions. Scroll down to know more!
Talking with ETimes about her marriage plans, Richa said, "Yes, it is unlikely that we will get married this year, because the pandemic is far from over. We would not like to endanger anyone due to our celebration. It is only wise to wait for the vaccine." She also added, "This was inevitable. There's nothing we could do to control this, so we took a sensible decision. In the second week of March itself, we had decided that we won't get married in these conditions. People travelling would face a health risk and safety is most important right now."
Richa also stressed on how disheartening it was to postpone their wedding since preparations for the same were going on in full swing. She said, "The idea is to celebrate our special day with people close to us - our friends and family. Once things settle down and when the time is right, hopefully, we will come back and the new world will celebrate with us. I don't know what kind of wedding celebration it will be now, given the new norms, but let's see."
In an interaction with the Mumbai Mirror, Ali Fazal had announced the delay of his marriage with longtime girlfriend, Richa Chadha and had said, "It has been delayed until further notice. I think we will celebrate with the world when everything is open again. We have something to celebrate... some good news hopefully, that everyone will get and we'll make sure to bring that along with our wedding. Until then, we're following all the rules of the lockdown and awaiting the next steps."

Ali Fazal had also talked to the Bombay Times about how he doesn't want to make a big deal out of his wedding. He had said, "We were supposed to get married, but it has been pushed. Of course, it is a bit disheartening because we were all geared up, and preparations were on in full swing. But it's fine. We didn't want to make a big noise about our wedding. It is just the next step forward in our lives." Revealing his tentative marriage time, he had told Mumbai Mirror, "Let's see when we are able to accept the new normal, then, we will decide on a date, maybe early next year." His ladylove, Richa Chadha had expressed that it is only pragmatic to push the wedding to the coming year in the interest of everyone, who would wish to attend.
In the month of April, in an interview with the Hindustan Times, Ali Fazal had joked about how the coronavirus pandemic had postponed everyone's' lives and had said, "Sabki life postpone ho gayi hai, shaadi toh... let's see what comes out of this in the new world. I hope we come out as better people, a better system, a better climate. I think there's a major churning happening above, below, inside and outside... everywhere. It's definitely a time to reflect."
