Richa Chadha and Ali Fazal, who got engaged in March, were looking forward to a wedding around April, with preparations being underway, which they had to postpone because of the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic. On Monday, as Gangs Of Wasseypur clocked 8 years, Richa Chadha shared a particular scene from the first part of the movie as her reaction to her much-awaited postponed wedding. "2020 saw me postponing my shaadi, rightly so, cuz this is such an unpredictable, manhoos year! Here's some Nagma swag for you, from the film that started it all for me! Enjoy," she captioned her post. Ali Fazal and Richa Chadha's wedding will reportedly have friends and family members flying in from the US and Europe. As lockdown restrictions were eased, several state governments announced that weddings will be allowed with 50 people in attendance.
Directed by Anurag Kashyap, Gangs Of Wasseypur cast Richa Chadha as Nagma Khatoon, whose wedding was arranged with Manoj Bajpayee's character Sardar. Nagma, who wasn't happy about the wedding, kept shut when asked by the imam : "Qubool hai?." That's exactly the bit Richa shared on her Instagram.
