Ali Fazal and Richa Chadha were all set to take their relationship to the next level in 2020, however, the duo decided to cancel their planned April 2020 wedding due to the Coronavirus pandemic. The couple has been in a relationship for years now and always presented a solid front in media. They always support each other on the professional and personal front.
Last month, Richa Chadha's name was brought up after actress Payal Ghosh accused director Anurag Kashyap of sexual misconduct. She posted on Twitter that the filmmaker had "forced himself upon her" and in an interview also named Richa Chadha and two other actresses in a derogatory statement.
Talking about the same Ali 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."

Richa had also filed a defamatory case against Payal. Ali had also lauded Richa for taking legal action and praised her for standing up for women who "lost their voices within the many patriarchal setups." In a social media post he added, "My love, you, who has stood up for women time and time again, today had to go through this ordeal. And yet, you come out strong as ever. My partner, your resilience, your kindness, and empathy have touched many people, and I have had the fortune of being witness to that over the time I've known you. The battles you've fought to create an equal society which isn't fractured by hate."
