Actress Divyanka Tripathi is extremely happy and excited these days. Wondering why? It is because, the actress will be celebrating her first 'karwa chauth' post marriage with Vivek Dahiya.
Karwa Chauth is an Indian festival where married women fast for the entire day without even consuming water, for the safety and long-life of their beloved husbands.
We got in touch with Divyanka, who mentioned, "Yes, I am really excited and anxious about 'karwa chauth', as of course, this is my first one post marriage. I have learnt all the required practices to be done on the day from my mother-in-law and I can't wait for the day."
We asked her about what does her husband, Vivek has to say about the fast, to which she said, "Vivek is totally against it as he simply doesn't want me to fast and remain hungry. He keeps telling me that we are together and happy so why fast and strain yourself. However, I am adamant that I will observe the fast because, apart from being an important ritual, it is romantic too (chuckles)."
When asked if she is expecting any gift or surprise from Vivek, she said, "Not at all. I am not expecting anything from him. If, I come to know that he, too is fasting or something, I will go and feed him myself (Laughs). Because, I know he cannot remain hungry and has to be well-fed. Apart from that, we will go on a late dinner together. If he comes up with any surprise, I will be happy and even if not, I will be equally happy."
When we asked about if she will be following all the rituals like applying mehendi and all, the actress said something which got us surprised. She said, "No, I won't be able to apply mehendi for the day due to work commitments. As actors, you are committed to your work and you cannot hamper your work due to your personal endeavors. People loved my mehendi during my marriage, for which too I actually took a huge risk, considering I had to resume work after marriage. But, it was my marriage and I had to do it. However, this time around, I won't be able to apply mehendi as the track of the show will get affected."
Now that's a classic example of striking out the right balance between personal and professional life, Divyanka!
We wish Divyanka and Vivek a happy karwa chauth..!
