‘Only Glamorous Roles Have Been Offered To Me’ — Divyanka Tripathi On Working In Bollywood

Jahnavi Patel

Divyanka Tripathi is one of the most popular actresses on television. She began her television journey as a contestant on India’s Best Cinestars Ki Khoj in 2004 and rose to fame with Banoo Main Dulhan Teri. Now, Divyanka has said that she’d love to be a part of Bollywood and believes she can perform well on the big screen.

She said:

I would love to be a part of Bollywood. Sadly, only glamorous roles have been offered to me until now, where I have nothing to do, just be a glam-doll. But that’s not me. I believe I can perform well on the big screen. I am a versatile actor. There is an apprehension among several filmmakers about casting a television actor, I don’t know why. I guess they think that television actors might overact but that is not the case.

She also added:

Whenever television actors have entered the film industry, they have left a great impact on the audience. The biggest examples are Shah Rukh Khan, Vidya Balan, Mouni Roy… I guess filmmakers also think that television actors will not understand the ways of working in the film industry. But I salute all TV actors because we deliver dialogues so efficiently after just 10 minutes of reading the script.

We hope to see you on the big screen soon, Divyanka.
