Even though rumour mills were abuzz with reports about co-stars Divyanka Tripathi and Karan Patel not getting along on the sets of their ongoing show, the ­former has denied the news. While Divyanka admits to having heard about Karan’s ­temperamental nature before working with him, she says she has not faced any ­problems with Karan so far.
“He has never been ­temperamental with me. He respects me and we are ­wonderful as co-actors,” she says, adding, “I’m completely neutral towards him.”
Meanwhile, Divyanka, who has been dating actor Ssharad Malhotraa for a long time now, says the two try not to interfere in each other’s work. “We do advise each other, but we don’t interfere too much in each other’s work. I feel this is very important,” says Divyanka, adding that it’s best that their careers remain ­independent of each other.
The 30-year-old says that space is very important in any relationship. “It is very important to give professional freedom to your partner. I don’t interfere too much in his work and he doesn’t talk much about mine. I feel it is important to give space as we are both working,” she says.
On the other hand, Divyanka feels that if she advises Ssharad, he will take it very seriously. “I am not very judgmental, because at the end of the day, we are a couple. I don’t want to say something that will make him feel bad. If I don’t like something, I do tell him, but not at once,” she says.
