TV actors Divyanka Tripathi Dahiya and Vivek Dahiya are one of the most popular couples of Indian television. After dating each other for a couple of months, the couple tied the knot last year on July 8. As they gear up to celebrate their first wedding anniversary, the couple talks about their plan to head off to Europe soon. Read on to know what they love about each other, what they would like to change, and their plans to start a family.
What have you planned for your first wedding anniversary?
Vivek: When you are an actor, your lifestyle is such that you are not able to plan much. However, I wanted this year to be different and have planned nice vacation for the two of us. We will be leaving for Europe for our anniversary [July 8] and it’s going to be a celebration as well as a vacation for us.
Divyanka: We are flying off to Europe to celebrate the special day. Both of us are fond of travelling, and hence Vivek has planned this trip for me.
What surprises have you planned for each other?
Vivek: I have planned something, but it is very personal. I never talk about my surprises, because I don’t want to reveal anything. The excitement will go away, if she reads about it anywhere.
Divyanka: Spending quality time together and being with each other in a new unexplored place, is what our first anniversary is going to be all about. We are looking forward to this long awaited break.
How would you describe your year together?
Vivek: The last year has been phenomenal. Thank God Nach Baliye happened. We got to know each other. This gave us the chance to work with each other and come closer. Before that, we were not getting any time to be with each other. Maximum, we would take two days out and go to Chandigarh once a month.
Divyanka: It’s been wonderful! We have so many great memories starting from our traditional, multi-city monsoon wedding last year to learning and growing together along with some exciting trips to Paris, London, Cardiff, Sri Lanka, Udaipur and Goa.
You are one of the most loved celebrity couple. Does the media glare ever bother you?
Vivek: We have never got uncomfortable because of our fans. We have received tremendous love from them. It’s beautiful to know that people love us. Where ever I go, my fans always ask me how Divyanka is, and I will feel odd if they stop doing that.
Divyanka: It’s a part and parcel of being an actor. It’s our fans, who wished for us to be together even before we had ever thought about it. The media then supported us in the journey we had. Hence, there are pros and cons to each and every industry and we accept both gracefully.
What is the one thing that you love about each other and what is it that you would want to change?
Vivek: The best thing about Divyanka is that she is so kind. Like you often see women bicker on things, but she isn’t petty. She doesn’t like to get into the nitty-gritty of things. What I don’t like about her is that she should take care of herself more. I understand that she is a workaholic, but she needs to take care of her health too.
Divyanka: A relationship is never about changing each other but rather accepting each other the way you are. And I think we are perfect for each other - we understand each other’s thought process, respect each other’s decisions and hence what more can one ask for.
Now that you have been together for a year, are there any plans of starting a family?
Vivek: There are no plans as of now. We are both very ambitious and want to concentrate on our careers and make that part of our lives secure.
Divyanka: We are just completing one year and hence there is still time.
