Divyanka Tripathi has been the ‘Face’ of Dulhann along with Sharad Malhotra, but there has been a buzz for quite sometime now, that she might be slowly axed from the show.
Having said so, Divyanka also feels that she sensed that something was brewing in the unit. “I was really depressed at that time, because I had given everything to Dulhann. If today, I am suffering from slip disc, it is only because of my strenuous working schedule”, laments the actress.
However, it was her own fans from India-Forums who made her happy and cheerful. “I was overwhelmed to see them send innumerable petitions to the channel requesting them not to take me out of the show. If Dulhann is my ‘Saans’, then my fans gave me a new breath to live with”, quips Divyanka.
“I really do not know what was in the mind of the channel or the production unit, but the thoughts of my fans have reached them, so I am not worried now”, adds she.
On the future track in Dulhann, she states, “We are resuming shoot from tonight. I was with the producers in a meeting few minutes back. They wanted to give a new twist to the story line; hence they tried to experiment with Aneesha’s entry. But now, they have understood that the viewers want to see Amar and Divya together, hence they might even be forced to change the track to get Dulhann back in the TRP race”.
Divyanka is also seen hosting the reality show on 9X, Jalwa Four 2 ka 1. “It is a new experience for me and I feel like a baby in this field. I am learning as I perform. I want to tell my fans not to expect much from me as a host (grins). I want them to support me, help me, suggest to me, and see me in the show”, avers the pretty lady.
On asked whether she has taken tips from anyone on hosting, Divyanka states, “I do not believe in getting tips as I will not be my natural self then. I want to improve after seeing myself on TV”. She considers Aman Verma as the top rated host in television. “He has a good hold on the audience and is experienced too”, concludes Divyanka.
