Women are multi-taskers and strong, says Divyanka

- Kavita Awaasthi

Having played strong women characters on screen in her popular TV shows including Yeh Hai Mohobbatei­n, actor Divyanka Tripathi Dahiya has made an observatio­n. She explains, “If one looks soft, then the assumption is that she must be soft. But what I have seen is that women can surprise people. They are multi-taskers and really strong as they handle and juggle so much around them. Yes, women can be intimidati­ng for men, especially Indian ones.”

She adds, “They can’t take it if one shows power or her strength. They fear it.” Dahiya goes on to state that if men are competing with each other, they are fine. But if a woman competes with them, they forget their competitio­n and join hands against her. “But I also feel that women shouldn’t get aggravated by it. It is psychology and let’s not be affected by it,” says the actor, who was last seen in a reality show.

The actor now wants to expand her craft and is “becoming stricter” with offers. She says,“Of course, it gets tough to say no when you are showered with scripts and good money. But I am not satisfied with just that and feel there is more to me that needs to be explored.”
