‘If Jen­nifer Anis­ton won’t be left alone, I have no chance’

Hindustan Times (Lucknow) - Live - - Front Page - Yashika Mathur yashika.mathur@htlive.com

Ac­tor Richa Chadha’s phone has been ring­ing non-stop, with ques­tions from friends, fam­ily and the me­dia, ever since her re­la­tion­ship with ac­tor Ali Fazal went pub­lic. How­ever, she seems to have made peace with her per­sonal life be­ing in the pub­lic eye.

“It’s none of any­one’s busi­ness who I’m dat­ing or not, but then I think that if Hol­ly­wood won’t leave Jen­nifer Anis­ton alone at this stage, ask­ing [her] about when she wants to have chil­dren, then I don’t have a chance to be left alone. You have to put up with some re­ally crazed out peo­ple,” says Richa, who has been dat­ing her Fukrey (2013) co-star Ali for over a year now.

We were laugh­ing [and think­ing] that what has hap­pened to peo­ple? I never thought any­one would care RICHA CHADHA, AC­TOR

Richa, who has oth­er­wise re­mained mum on her re­la­tion­ship sta­tus, sent out strong tweets against things be­ing writ­ten about her. She says, “I now un­der­stand why peo­ple like to keep things un­der wraps, be­cause [oth­ers] write what­ever they feel like.”

Talk­ing about how she and Ali re­acted to the fan frenzy around their re­la­tion­ship, she says, “We were laugh­ing [and think­ing] that what has hap­pened to peo­ple? I never thought any­one would care. We’re not from the film in­dus­try; we don’t strate­gise or send hints to the press or give tip-offs that we’ll eat here and take our pic­ture.”
