Back in the 2010s, actress Richa Gangopadhyay was an overnight sensation in Kollywood. Her movies like Osthi and Mayakkam Enna earned her many fans and positive reviews from the critics. The actress continued to bag many films from the South Indian cinema.

However, in 2013 Richa shocked everyone by taking the decision to leave the film industry forever and shift back to the United States to pursue an MBA. Fans were disappointed and even after years of Richa's voluntary exit, some still seek her comeback to films.

Recently, pictures of Richa's wedding went viral! Many news media reported that the actress got married secretly. The former actress sent out a tweet on her official account to clarify the misconception about her marriage. Here's what her tweet said:

Thanks everyone for the kind wishes ?. Married a little over 3 months to the love of my life and couldn't be happier. We were grad school classmates (not college, which in the U.S. exclusively means undergrad), and the only two in our MBA cohort of 140 students that never spoke a word to each other till the second year of our program ?. You just never know when your soulmate will be standing there right in front of you, without even knowing it at first ;). Opposites do attract! Had a beautiful 4-event Indo-American ceremony, across the country in Michigan where I grew up (not sure where "secret love marriage" came from in some of these articles!) with all our friends and relatives from both sides. Blessed to have married into such a wonderful family, and Joe is pretty lucky to have doting in-laws as well!! Lucky to have nothing short of a fairy tale wedding and love story.

It's crazy to still receive so much support and love from you all even after having left the film industry 6 years ago to pursue other career interests! Will always be grateful. Happy Holidays everyone and all my love ?❤️

Congratulations, Richa! Happy married life to you from Astro Ulagam.
