Ali Fazal and Richa Chadha, who have been in a committed relationship for years, are getting married on Tuesday, October 4. The pre-wedding festivities will start on Friday, September 30, and the couple has already left for Destination Delhi.

The wedding functions will be divided between Delhi and Mumbai, with the couple choosing iconic places in the two cities to formalise their relationship.

But before Ali and Richa walk down the aisle, Namrata Thakker looks at how they fell in love.
