Popular actress Richa Gangopadhyay who made her presence as the leading lady in Tollywood and Kollywood has reportedly tied the knot with her business school boyfriend Joe Langella on Tuesday. While there is no official confirmation from the actress or her family, photos from her wedding which happened in both Hindu and Christian traditions are going viral on social media. The couple were engaged in January early this year.
Despite featuring in only six Telugu films and two Tamil projects, Richa Gangopadhyay made a mark on the silver screen with her gorgeous looks and mesmerising screen-presence. Her performance in Selvaraghavan’s Mayakkam Enna as the wife of an alcoholic husband got her good recognition.
In 2013, during the peak of her career, the 33-year-old actress decided to quit acting and continue her studies in the United States. She joined Olin School of Business at Washington University to pursue a career in business management. In January 2019, she announced her engagement with Joe Langella who joined the university in 2015 after serving for the US Army in Afghanistan and Korea. The pair met during their second year as MBA students and has been dating ever since.
At just 21 years of age, Richa Gangopadhyay became the winner of the Miss India Michigan pageant and followed it up with the Miss India USA in 2007. She represented the United States in the 17th Annual Miss India Worldwide Pageant held in Johannesburg and secured a place in the Top 10. The cute belle made her celluloid debut with Sekhar Kammula’s ‘Leader’ and went on to feature in superhit films like Prabhas’ Mirchi, Nagavalli and Bhai.
