In an interview with Mashable India, Richa said, “Whenever we think of getting married there comes a new (Covid-19) version. In 2020, we had booked the place too but the first wave came, followed by the lockdown and the devastation. Last year again, in February, we had confidence and talks started. The experience of the second wave was the worst in India. quite sad.”
When she was suggested that they should go for a court marriage, Richa said, “Hann wahi laga raha hai kuch. People who met us later will also be married. Let us see how kitni kitni tiki hai later.” Aisa kya hai, finish line pe milenge (It seems like something. Those who met after us also got married. We will see whose marriage lasts longer. What a big deal, we will meet at the finish line). We will do it. Want to do this year, we will do time, will do something (we will do something).”
In an interview with Hindustan Times last December, Ali spoke about tying the knot with Richa. “We are dying to do this (get married). It is pending. First there was the lockdown and this year the second wave… then the delay. Also, when things opened up, we both had to complete the pending shoots, so there was no time. As for March 2022… Maybe but for now, I am clueless. We are trying to make it work,” he had said.
Both Richa and Ali will be seen in Fukrey 3, which went on floors in Mumbai on March 3. The comedy film franchise is directed by Mrigdeep Singh Lamba and produced by Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar’s Excel Entertainment.
