Banoo Main Teri Dulhann’s much-loved Jodi, Saagar and Vidya will be christened as Amar and Divya in their new re-incarnated look. As the duo have a role rehearsal in this birth, with Sharad Malhotra playing the less-educated when compared to the London-return Divyanka Tripathi, we talked to the stars themselves to get their views on their new look and character.
Divyanka Tripathi who plays the London-bred girl with a western influence to her language and style says, “I had to do a lot of research on my new character. I had to shop a lot for my clothes and work on my body language and style. I have a modern, but decent look. I always had one thing in mind that I will not show my skin, come what may!.”
When asked whether the audience will accept this sudden change in story line and characterization, an optimistic Divyanka replies, “I am sure they will accept us as we have worked very hard on this. When Vidya was introduced in the serial, I made the character famous thro' sheer hard work. Today, if Vidya has been accepted by the audience, so will Divya.”

Sharad Malhotra plays the happy-go-lucky tourist guide Amar and this is what the actor has to say about his new look. “Amar lives in Benaras with his brother. He is full of energy and chilled out, a very simple guy with a heart of Gold.” Sharad terms his journey in Dulhann as a roller-coaster ride full of ups and downs. “I started with playing a 8 year old followed by a 25 year old handsome guy, and then the phase where I had to enact both roles at the same time. I feel it is great for a male protagonist to get such an opportunity to play so many shades on television , where you need to think creatively to give your best shot”, says Sharad. Sharad will be seen bantering dialogues in the UP accent and style. “They speak a completely different twang in the village and I have a major problem with the diction. I am still working on perfecting it and hope all falls in place”.
Telly Buzz team talked to Pearl Shahi, Creative Head to get her input on the reincarnation track. “We wanted to bring in freshness to the story, and wanted to show a blossoming love story between the protagonists, which we could not show earlier, as Vidya and Saagar fell in love only after marriage. We know that the audience will be delighted to see this phase and of course, we aim for more TRPs now.”
Talking about the Om Shanti Om look to the promos, Pearl says, “Yes, we went for it because we wanted the viewers to see the promo and immediately realize that this serial is going in for reincarnation.”
Last but not the least, talking about the story line, Pearl Shahi comments, “The first episode shown after the leap will see the entry of Divyanka aka Divya, who will return to Delhi from London. Now Sindoora is at Delhi, while Amar is situated at Benaras. The story will move as destiny takes Divya to Benaras where she will meet Amar and thus the love story begins.”
We wish Sharad and Divyanka a very successful second innings!!
