MUMBAI: Love is indeed in the air on this occasion of Valentine’s Day! We say that because Bollywood lovebirds Richa Chadha and Ali Fazal expressed their love for each other in this old-timey way, but with a modern-day twist! Richa Chadha wrote a gratifying love letter to her boyfriend Ali Fazal and shared it all over Instagram. She talked about things like they being tagged as the ‘power couple’ and so on.
The letter reads, “You see, ever since we got together, we have defied all the cliches that measure or express love.” She went on to question why people say a person is ‘head over heels’ in love and wrote, “Does love really make you somersault and drive you to a point where logic is compromised — everything appears upside down. Doesn’t it actually make you stronger since your biggest cheerleader is by your side?”
She addressed other stereotypical phrases in the letter regarding love like ‘falling in love’, for which she expressed, “Love doesn’t make you fall, it empowers you instead. It makes you greater than you have ever been before. And the fact that you accomplish this together, actually makes you ‘greater together’.”
In the letter, Richa had a message for all the people who were reading the letter too! She believes that everyone should start looking at the idea of love and relationships through a new perspective. She also writes to not limit love to merely getting greeting cards or cheesy chain messages over the phone. Richa says love is more than just “a series of platitudes”. She questioned, “Why try to outdo each other with grand over the top gestures of romance, when all it needs, is two people who are not only willing to embrace each other’s flaws but also inspire each other to become the best version of ourselves.”
