Richa Gangopadhyay expressed her happiness about Mayakkam Enna completing 9 years and tweeted, "Wow....I can't believe it's already been #9YearsOfMayakkamEnna . I guess I took a page out of that story in "real" life, by leaving "reel" life to pursue other passions and change my career track altogether! No regrets. In fact, no regrets about anything in life so far :)."
Richa On Changing Her Career Path
For the unversed, Richa left acting and changed her career path completely by pursuing a career in marketing. Revealing about that, the actress wrote, "Did you know that I actually fell in love with marketing and brand management while I was an actress? It's what fueled my passion to pursue my MBA for those wondering why I left. Yes, it IS possible to have dreams other than being a famous movie star, believe it or not!"
The Actress On Falling In Love With Joe Langella
Talking about finding the love of her life, Richa Gangopadhyay shared her love story. The Osthe actress tweeted, "In the process, I found lifelong companionship unexpectedly from my classmate-turned-husband.

Richa Gangopadhyay Says, “Take Risks”
The actress in her tweet said that taking risks in life is the key rule to achieve your goals. Richa tweeted, "You always have choices in life. Take risks. Be open.

And I love my life now."
