Of late there have been certain rumors making rounds that Divyanka Tripathi feels insecure post the entry of Aneesha Kapoor as the third angle in her Zee TV daily, Banoo Mein Teri Dulhann..
But when we spoke to Sharad Malhotra, he denied any such happening. “Divyanka is a professional, why should she be insecure? We both have worked so hard for the past two years to make the show so popular! Why should we do anything to harm our own prospects?”, he questioned.
Then why are such rumors being spread? “May be the channel or the production house wants to create some hype. I have nothing against it, but having said that, I would say any publicity is good publicity. However, I would prefer positive vibes always”, expresses Sharad.
He goes on. “One of the main reasons for this sudden urge to be in the news can be that the track change of Amar's marriage with Gauri has flopped. The audience which has seen me and Divyanka together for so long, first as Sagar and Vidya and now as Amar and Divya can’t understand how I could end up with someone else. A certain section of the viewers have been hurt. Two of my friends have even stopped watching the show”, he added.
“In a long winding daily, you have to go on introducing new tracks to keep the show running. Some work while others don't. Hence the correct action would be to tweak some changes, whereby we can have two parallel tracks, of mine one with Aneesha and also with Divyanka. I have even spoken to the creatives and may be something will turn up soon to restore Dulhann its lost glory”, avers the actor.
Even Aneesha has denied any problems with Divyanka. “I hardly know them, so where is the case of problems creeping up?”, quips Aneesha. But the actress does accept that pubic does not seem to be accepting her. “I am getting lot of hate mails. I just hope that the channel does not bow down to public pressure and ease my character out. Luckily I don't see it happening so soon as the channel has a set story line. However, I would just request the audience to give Gauri a fair chance, to tell her side of the story”, concludes Aneesha.
