Richa Chaddha, who got considerable media coverage, by declaring on social media that she is in a relationship with Ali Fazal, dismissed all rumours that it was done for publicity and nothing else. The whole news was genuine, she insists and she is still in love with him. "I feel sad for those who think Ali and I are faking our relationship. If I had to start a love rumour to promote the film, I would have done it with Choocha (Varun Sharma). Ali and I never wanted to talk about [our relationship] publicly because we knew this is how people would react. People should use their brains before passing comments. I hope they get the right message after reading this," Richa told an Indian newspaper.
Three months after Fazal spoke about their relationship, Chadha told the newspaper they've been "in a happy space since a long time". She said, "Ali and I have known each other since we were doing theatre. Speculations were rife since then. People weren't surprised when the media published it. In fact, the media was the last to know about it," Richa told Midday newspaper.
