Bride-to-be Divyanka Tripathi is getting a little nervous before the big day, which is not really surprising. In an interview to Hindustan Times, the popular actress opened up about the wedding preparations and balancing her personal and professional life. The wedding will happen on July 8th in Bhopal, the mehendi and sangeet on July 7th and the big reception will happen on July 10th in Chandigarh. While Divyanka knows the wedding will garner a lot of media attention, she also believes some things should be kept private. Here are a few excerpts from her interview –
It is finally sinking in — I am getting married! I will be with one person forever. Now it feels real. At times I get jitters, as I worry about things going perfectly. It’s such an important event. Vivek and I are coordinating and organizing everything with the help of our families in Chandigarh and Bhopal, respectively.
It feels weird. It is sweet that people want to know everything about my wedding, but they should also respect my privacy. The buzz is overwhelming and pressuring. There are a lot of expectations. People seem to be getting hyper about even the little things, like who the flower vendor for my wedding is. I am a celebrity, but I don’t want people standing outside my wedding venue.
I haven’t taken a break post the wedding as we both have work. I have taken leave only for the duration of the wedding.
