In effect, Richa met her lover Joe Langella while she was doing her MBA at Washington University in 2015. The duo has dated for a couple of days and they got engaged early this year and hitched in September this year.
She got hurt with some web portals claiming that the actress got married secretly to her lover.
"Had a beautiful 4-event Indo-American ceremony, across the country in Michigan where I grew up with all our friends and relatives from both sides. Not sure where "secret love marriage" came from in some of these articles!" the actress said.
"Blessed to have married into such a wonderful family, and Joe is pretty lucky to have doting in-laws as well!!" she added.
