Divyanka Tripathi is one of the most popular television actresses. She has been a part of the television industry for about 15 years, has appeared in numerous shows, and has effectively carved out a niche for herself. The actress has recently made headlines for declining Bade Acche Lagte Hain 2. Divyanka confessed in a recent interview that she turned down the offer because she didn’t think she and Nakuul Mehta would work together onscreen.
ETimes quoted her as saying, “After working for so many years into this industry if it is me or anyone as an actor, we should have at least this liberty to choose a project which I am passionate about.” The actress also expressed that she didn’t relate with the project and informed the production house of her sentiments, declining the part.
She added, “As far as the report of me looking older than him onscreen is considered in fact I totally agree with it. Because when I was offered the show and I was proposed this idea, I was surprise after hearing about the pairing and my family also reacted the same way. They felt that we would look slightly off. But when I spoke to the show’s team over the phone, I agreed to do the look test. I felt like let’s give the look test and see how our pair actually looks onscreen.”
“I had this feeling that Nakuul and I won’t match or look good onscreen together. I am fine with that thought. I feel someone else who comes on board to play the female lead will do justice to the show and I had conveyed my thought across. I’ve done this personally,” she concluded.
