Divyanka Tripathi, best remembered for her role play in 'Banoo Main Teri Dulhan' and 'Mrs and Mr Sharma Allahabadwaley', is now on a roll again. The actress, is excited to be donning her favourite attire — saree — most of the times in her recently launched show 'Ye Hai Mohabbatein' where she portrays a Tamilian Brahmin Ishita Iyer.
Says Divyanka, "I love to wear a saree and can also dance beautifully wearing a saree." In a fun chat, Divyanka speaks about her inclination for spiritual thinking and her fondness for the dog on her show.
You've had a successful TV stint. Which has been the best phase of your career so far? So far, 'Banoo Main Teri Dulhan' has been the most beautiful phase in my life. But life changed and how I deal with showbiz is different now. I didn't know how to be politically correct and was careless with my health. I didn't eat well and even had slip disc problems. After I realized how important it is to manage life in a practical way. Now I take good care of my health, eat in portions, and exercise to keep fit.
Did showbiz change you as a person over the years? I have become more responsible towards myself. Otherwise, I am like a typical small town girl, too simple for Mumbaikars. In fact, my spiritual inclination may tag me as too boring. I meditate a lot and do reiki. I don't often go to temples, but I am a firm believer in aadhyatma because of my Brahminical upbringing. My grandfather and my mother's spiritual inclination influenced me a lot in how I look at life with a positive approach.
How important is it to establish a connect with a character in a story? Striking a good on screen chemistry with costars becomes important for TRPs and everyone works to achieve good TRPs. How good your rapport with every key character of the show is important. I worked quite hard to strike a rapport with Muthuswami, the dog in the show. I would bring him goodies and make friends with him, because it is important for me to make him feel comfortable. And each time the Labrador was replaced with another cutie Muthuswami, I'd do the same to ensure there is no problem on the sets.
Is the Indian TV audience ready for experimental content? Indian TV audience is very receptive to unusual story ideas. It's their adaptive nature makes showmakers come up with some hatke scripts. Audience likes masala with loads of twists and turns which take them by surprise. And TV shows offer them exactly that.
Ekta Kapoor is known to be a tough taskmaster. There are certain things that one can never miss while working with Ekta. She doesn't just work on the basic outline. She gives the entire narrative a signature style by thinking of different twists and turns in the story. Moreover, Ekta is very good at heart and takes into consideration our inputs and respects artists
