Divyanka Tripathi is one of the most popular actress in the telivision industry. After her work in shows like Banoo Main Teri Dulhania and Yeh Hai Mohabbatein, she made a name for herself in the industry.
In a recent interview, Divyanka spoke about her journey in the industry and all the trouble she faced in the initial days.
The actress said, “There have been ups and downs. There was the beginning phase when I was like almost tortured (laughs). But when I think of it today, I am thankful. Every bit of pressure that I got, every bit of frustration that I went through, has shaped me up today. Only when you will embrace your past experience, you will feel powerful. You feel that you deserve to be in the place where you are today. Apne saare experiences, acche ya bure, unhe sanjoh kar rakho. Those are little gems that make your life beautiful.”
According to her, many men approached her with indecent proposals, but she plainly refused.
She further added, “There definitely are some men who just can’t take ‘No’ for an answer. They make indecent proposals and make inappropriate remarks. And would you believe that they still want to be respected? If you retaliate or don’t respect them, they make sure that they spoil your name. They take it to their ego. Character assassination karne ki koshish karte hain. I have faced it. But I was new then and like today, even then I was sure of myself; I never succumb to such pressure. Few try to get overpowering but I don’t let them. While being kind, I can still put across my point and say ‘No means No’. I know how to hold my ground.”
