She has stated:

Yea, you know I feel really lucky to come from different parts of India because I got a chance to celebrate my Kannada roots and my Banaras roots also and there’s a lot of overlap and a lot of similarities. My parents are both Hindus, so a lot of rituals and religious customs might be similar but there are also a lot of differences. The language, the food, or the way we dress in different parts of India that I’m from I get to celebrate that and that’s so exciting for me.

Richa’s maternal grandfather’s surname was Gopal.
