Set against the backdrop of India’s war for independence in the 1940s, Heeramandi investigates the lives of courtesans and their patrons.

Actor Ali Fazal praised his wife Richa Chadha for her outstanding performance in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s debut web series, ‘Heeramandi: The Diamond Bazaar.’ The series, which stars Manisha Koirala, Sonakshi Sinha, Aditi Rao Hydari, Sharmin Segal, and Sanjeeda Sheikh, has received mixed reactions from audiences.

However, Fazal was quick to praise his wife’s acting skills, showing his support and respect for her talent. On Thursday, Ali took to Instagram to share a video montage of their vacations, public interactions, and intimate moments.


The actor also wrote a heartfelt note for his wife that read, “Only a fool would not take Lajjo and fly away !! ( Lajjo check) You are simply the best and I feel so lucky I get to share my notes with you in person .. congratulations partner on this mad success of #heeramandi . You’ve risen way way way above the norm you always do. See you soon! @therichachadha !!.”

Richa also responded, writing, “Am lucky luckiest girl alive thank you.”

The Nawabs in the series are played by Fardeen Khan, Taha Shah Badussha, Shekhar Suman, and Adhyayan Suman.

Set against the backdrop of India’s war for independence in the 1940s, the show delves into the lives of courtesans and their patrons, as well as the cultural dynamics of Heera Mandi.

Richa and Ali met on the set of Fukrey in 2012 and quickly fell in love. They have been officially married since 2020, but they celebrated their union in 2022 with events in Delhi, Mumbai, and Lucknow.

Meanwhile, Ali and Richa are preparing to release ‘Girls will be Girls’, a film produced under their brand. The film, directed by Shuchi Talati, is a gripping story about a boarding school in a small Himalayan hill town in northern India.

It follows the story of Mira, a 16-year-old girl whose rebellious emergence is connected with her mother’s unfulfilled coming-of-age experiences.

The ensemble includes multi-award-winning Malayalam film actress Kani Kusruti and Jitin Gulati, as well as debutants Preeti Panigrahi and Kesav Binoy Kiron in lead roles.
