Richa Sharma is a former Mrs. India pageant winner. She was crowned Mrs. India in 2011. Richa is originally a resident of Kolkata, but she shifted to Kanpur post her marriage to Manish Sharma, a Kanpur based industrialist. She has a daughter, Aashna, with him.
She was working as a school teacher in Kanpur when her friend, Shivalika Sharma, who herself won the Gladrags Mrs. India title in 2009, encouraged her to participate in the beauty pageant. Accordingly, Richa sent her pictures to the organisers and the rest, as they say is history. She flew down to Mumbai for her grooming sessions and was trained by experts in the field. Richa’s daughter was nine years old at the time and she maintains that she didn’t have any problems balancing her personal and professional life, as she has always been a working woman. She attributes the support of her husband and her in- laws as the major reason for her success. She also holds Adrita Khanna, who organises the pageant, in high regards and attributes her in her success as well. Afer winning the Mrs. India title, Richa went on to represent India at the Mrs. International in Chicago. She counts Sabyasachi Mukherjee, Manish Malhotra and Kiran Uttam Ghosh among her favorite designers. Her favorite actor is Angelina Jolie.
Richa has her heart in charitable work and spoke about being a part of noble causes during her pageant days as well. She has been attached to a few NGOs in Kolkata. In 2013, she was appointed the Global Ambassador of the Mrs. India pageant. She will be seen making her Bollywood debut on the big screen soon, playing the wife of famed Bollywood actor, Govinda, in the film, Aa Gaya Hero, which is releasing in March 2017.
