When Divyanka Tripathi had to stop getting work, the producers used to say – ‘Nobody will see you’


Divyanka Tripathi, one of the most popular actresses of the television world, started her career with Zee TV’s hit show ‘Banu Main Teri Dulhan’ (Banu Main Teri Dulhan). In this show, Divyanka was so much liked in the role of the innocent ‘Vidya Pratap Singh’ that she became a household name. It was through this one character that Divyanka became a separate identity in the industry and she went ahead in her career. But in a recent interview, Divyanka told how she had to struggle to find work in the industry only after this first show.

Talking about the rejections that Divyanka faced early in her career in an interaction with Pinkvilla, she said, “I never took them as rejections. One thing I have always understood is that if I am not a part of a project, then there is no demand for my work in it. Maybe they need someone who looks different from me or performs differently than me, because I am not a potato to mix with every vegetable.”

This problem came due to being tied to an image
Divyanka further added, “If you get auditions, you will get rejections too, but what if you are not getting auditions at all? In fact, in ‘Banu Main Teri Dulhan’, I was typecast like Tulsi (because mother-in-law was also a daughter-in-law) and Parvati (the story of the household). So later producers stopped casting me. They used to say that ‘You have become like Tulsi and Parvati, so we cannot cast you again, no one will see you’.

‘Some things kept me here’
Divyanka Tripathi She further says, “In those days we did not have so many opportunities, so we used to doubt ourselves. Many times it seemed that I should go back to Bhopal after packing my belongings, but I do not know that some things kept me here. Divyanka’s character of Doctor Ishita in the TV serial ‘Yeh Hai Mohabbatein’ got good popularity. After this, in the year 2017 she participated in the dance reality show ‘Nach Baliye 8’ with husband Vivek Dahiya and emerged as the winner. At the same time, last year she participated in ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi 11’ and was the runner-up.
