A couple of weeks back, actress Payal Ghosh accused filmmaker Anurag Kashyap of sexual misconduct. In her allegation, Payal also dragged Richa Chadha’s name alongside other actresses. She even passed defamatory remarks on Richa. However, a while back the Fukrey actress took a legal route against Payal Ghosh. Following the same, Payal apologized to Richa for passing the defamatory remarks. Now, actor Ali Fazal has broken his silence on Payal Ghosh’s defamatory remarks against her actress-girlfriend Richa Chadha.
The Mirzapur actor said, “I’m glad that men can be feminists and strong ones at the same time. We just want to be there for the ones we love and make sure the society is shaped into something better. We are going to try and be there for everybody. Richa is close to me, and of course, I would stand by her through everything.”
Well, Richa Chadha is indeed lucky to have Ali in her life. It is really good to know that Richa had Ali Fazal around her when Payal Ghosh’s defamatory remarks were directed at her.
Further in the conversation with Pinkvilla, Ali also revealed that he is not tying the knot this year. The actor did drop a hint that their wedding ceremony might happen next year.
For the unknown, Ali Fazal proposed Richa Chadha earlier this year. The lovebirds were to tie the knot this year in October. However, the COVID-19 pandemic rained on their parade.
The couple met on the sets of Fukrey back in 2012 and their love blossomed during the shoot of the film. The two made their relationship official at the world premiere of Victoria and Abdul in Venice in 2017.
Richa Chadha and Ali Fazal will once again share the screen space for the third instalment of the Fukrey franchise.
On the work front, apart from Mirzapur 2, Ali has two Hollywood projects- Death On The Nile and Code Name: Johnny Walker.
