Weekend Exclusive | Initially I used to sit with script like a school: Actor, Divyanka Tripathi
Adding another good comedy show to her kitty, she has been gathering positive reviews for her new role in Chintu Chinki Aur Ek Badi Si Love Story on SAB TV. Adgully caught with Divyanka Tripathi, and spoke to her about her life and career journey.
A very adventurous person who loves travelling, Divyanka, aspired to be an Army officer, but started her career with modeling and won various titles like Miss Bhopal, Miss beautiful Skin in Zee's Teen contest.
Divyanka says, "I started my career with a serious daily drama soap where I played a very serious, introvert and undecided woman. It was very difficult, but for a change I wanted something different and then came along Mrs. And Mr. Sharma Allahabadwale. Sab TV took risk and casted me in that. It amazingly clicked together. And also even I realised that I can do comedy. Then came along Chintu and Chinki .The whole phase was experimental. But I learnt a lot."
Speaking about her character in the current show she told us that Chinki is a very simple, subtle girl who loves to play Tanpura, as she is a student of music. The fun begins when she falls in love.
"Initially I used to sit with script like a school student and used to question a lot that how to go ahead with each and every expression."says Divyanka.
As in her last show Mrs. And Mr. Sharma Allahabadwale, there was a very restricted family or may be few characters but her current show has a huge star cast. So talking about her experience with such a huge start cast she said, "it has been really amazing working with all of them. In respect to the show, both the families are really awesome. Chinki's family is little more educated as compared to chintu's family. It is really great working with such experienced actors."
Leaving a message for the new entrants, she said, "Please don't leave everything and come here in this field. It always good top try. Keep your background strong. Finish your studies properly. If you really want to be an actor then please do learn it properly. Make parents feel proud of you." | By Aanchal Kohli [aanchal(at)adgully.com]
