Can’t just be a pretty face in a film: Divyanka
Actor Divyanka Tripathi Dahiya (right) shot to fame after she played the protagonist in the daily show Banoo Main Teri Dulhann (2006-2009). After working in various fiction and non-fiction shows, Divyanka now feels that it’s time to try something new. The actor is keen on taking on more challenging roles, be it film or television.
“I can’t do similar things every time [a role comes my way]. Right now, I am looking for some variation,” she says. “Over the past 12 years on TV, I have tried exploring various characters. Now, I feel that it’s time for me to try something that would challenge me, ” says Divyanka.
Is she keen on trying her luck in Bollywood? The actor says she would love to, but the offer needs to be appealing enough. “I am ready to experiment, and open to taking up any interesting offer. But I won’t sign anything and everything that comes my way,” adds Divyanka, who along with her husband, actor Vivek Dahiya recently won dance reality show Nach Baliye.
Talking about the kind of roles she would love to take up on the big screen, Divyanka says she wants to be in women-centric films. “Bollywood is essentially dominated by men, and I can’t just be a pretty face in a film. I would love to do womenoriented films. Among the recent films, I liked watching Sridevi in Mom. I’m looking at similar powerful roles,” she adds.
