Whenever anybody would ask us about our favourite genre, we would without thinking for a second say, romance. Romantic novels and fairytale movies have always been close to our hearts and we would binge-watch a show which would be based upon a couple falling in love and starting their happily ever after. The glamour world is also filled with fairytale romances and we can't stop ourselves from drooling over celebrities' mushy pictures and love-filled. Some B-town celebs prefer to keep their relationship a secret and then there are couples like Ali Fazal and Richa Chadha, who love to flaunt their love for each other and never shy away from praising each other. From taking each other on dreamy vacations to accompanying one another for events, Ali and Richa have taken #CoupleGoals to another level.

Richa Chadha had never thought that she will fall in love with a fellow actor and on the other hand, Ali Fazal was waiting for life to surprise him. The duo had first met on the sets of their first film together, Fukrey and since then rumours and speculations about them dating have been surfacing the internet. Initially, they had kept their relationship a secret and it was only when we had spotted Richa accompanying Ali to Venice Film Festival that rumours turned into reality. Post which the duo has been quite vocal about their love for each other and never shy away from praising one another.
Richa Chadha had recently done a stand-up comedy and had received a lot of appreciation for the same. In an interview with the Bombay Times, she revealed that Ali was present in the audience and how it felt to have him there. She revealed, “Ali is a sweetheart. He was expected to reach at 8 pm for the show, as I was to perform at 8.30. He showed up at 6.30 with coffee and cookies for everyone. He is extremely supportive. I couldn’t have asked for a better man in my life. Our relationship is a great creative partnership. No one that sees us together feels like it’s a mismatch. It wasn’t unnerving to have him in the audience at all. My friend, Ali and my brother Pranav were all sitting together. I made jokes about my family, too. It was nice that people liked it and were pleasantly surprised by my comic side.”
Richa Chadha believes that it’s a miracle that she and Ali Fazal are together. Talking about the same, she said, “I said it’s a miracle because it’s rare to find like-minded people who share certain core values and have similar interests like poetry, music, films and literature. Ali is also progressive and liberal. To find someone like that in your industry is rare. Also, we never expected to end up together. It happened organically.” (Suggested Read: Mohena Kumari Singh's 'London Thumakda' With Hubby, Suyesh Rawat Makes Us Wonder Who Did It Better)
Richa Chadha, during the interview, talked about her wedding plans with Ali Fazal and revealed, “We don’t have time. If we were to talk about marriage, it will be like... I don’t have dates in March, May is too hot, we are shooting a film in June, it rains too much in July... It will become like a line production job. We are waiting and chilling, and we are in a happy space.”
It was in 2018 when Richa Chadha had confessed her love for Ali Fazal in an interview with the Pinkvilla and had revealed why her mindset towards falling in love changed. She had stated, “I have had bad experiences with actors on outdoor shoots and I never thought I'll fall for an actor. But with this experience, I have learnt that never say never. What we like about each other is that we give each other space and as we both are actors, we understand the demands of the profession. And at the same time, we both are from middle-class families. He is a great intellectual match for me, he is well-read and educated guy. He has common interests like me - art, literature, music and photography. Sometimes we cook together and even workout together.”
On December 18, 2019, Richa Chadha had turned a year older and to wish his ladylove on her special day, Ali Fazal had turned a poet. Sharing an adorable picture of the two, Ali had written, “One of my all-time favourite photographs of life.. I miss. Arey Mohabbat. Happy Birthday. Janm din mubaarak paartnar . dooree bhee ajeeb cheez hai - naee khair ajeeb nahin hai , main kuchh poetik likhana chaah raha tha iss mauqe pe. I guess, the photo says it all. Aur himmat bhi nahi hui... @therichachadha. “Yeh nahi jaanta kitna lamba hai safar.. Main shayad jaanta hoon kitna lamba hai safar. Kal bataaoonga. Tum milna . Waheen. Khaton ke teele pe . Kaagaz tumhaara hoga, kalam-dawaat meri, likhaayi tumhaari, chand bol mere, afsaane tumhaare, ghazlein meri, yeh silsila mera , yeh daastaan-e-mohabbat hamari!”- M.” (Must Read: 'Sadda Haq' Actor, Krrip Kapur Suri And His Wife, Simran Become Proud Parents To A Baby Girl)
