While shooting for the Malayalam movie Daddy Cool, the director Aashiq Abu had asked Richa to report for shooting by nine, because Mammootty would be reporting then. However she reached the sets by eight.
Richa then kept a bet with the director that Mammootty would not report on time for shooting. She agreed to change her name if she loses the wager. But punctual as he is our superstar was there sharp on time and Richa was fondly given the nickname 'Picha' by the director. Mammootty who was unaware of all this however had the last laugh.
