Former ‘Yeh Hai Mohabbatein’ star, Divyanka Tripathi Dahiya has opened up on why she rejected the lead role opposite Nakuul Mehta in the sequel of Sony TV’s ‘Bade Acche Lagte Hain’.
In an interview with ET Times, Divyanka said, “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.”
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.”
Divyanka added, “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.”
