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