Not Ali Zafar, Ali Fazal: Richa Chadha sets the record straight | The Express Tribune

Bollywood sweethearts Richa Chadha and Ali Fazal are all set to tie the knot next month. With news of their wedding plans making headlines, it seems like someone mixed up Alis across the borders in a hurry and Chadha had to clarify that she is not marrying the Pakistani singer Ali Zafar, but her Bollywood sweetheart.

Indian journalist Prashant Jain of Navbharat Times, in a now-deleted tweet, accidentally tagged singer Ali Zafar instead of the Mirzapur star Fazal. Correcting him, Chadha retweeted and wrote, “Ali Zafar is a Pakistani singer, actor, who is already married,” along with a thinking face emoji.

The Jhoom singer had nothing but gratitude for Chadha. He shared her tweet and wrote, “Phew! Thank you for the clarification,” with a cool-boss-face emoji.

However, saving himself from further embarrassment, the journalist quickly deleted the original and corrected it with Fazal’s username, announcing their supposed wedding date. As per Times of India, the wedding will take place on October 6 with a reception the next day in Mumbai.

Earlier this year, Chadha revealed the news of the couple getting married soon. “I think shaadi ho jaegi iss saal. Kar lenge kisi tarah se [We will get married this year, will marry somehow]. We’re very excited to get married but [we are] just worried about Covid and want to be responsible. We don’t want to be in the news for the wrong reasons. Plus, we’ve both gotten really, really busy when stuff opened up, and work resumed at full pace. So, I’m saying we have to like do a live production job of taking combination dates and making this happen this year,” she said.

On the work front, we’ll see the to-be-married duo Chadha and Fazal sharing a screen in Fukrey 3. Moreover, she will also star in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s next Heera Mandi. A fan favourite, Fazal will be returning this year as Guddu Bhaiya for the third instalment of Mirzapur which releases next month.
