Actor Divyanka Tripathi says she doesn’t mind playing a married woman on the small screen because that is how the audience love her.

“How could you not be married and garner TRPs!” asks the 30-year-old actor, adding, “We have to see what kind of audience is watching the telly soaps. They are the women cutting vegetables or taking care of babies and sitting in front of television. They watch my shows because they ­connect with me as I portray their lives on the tube.”

The actor, who portrays a strong-headed woman and a doting morther — Dr Ishita — in an ongoing daily soap, says being on the tube comes with its own set of responsibilities.

“With such a huge reach comes huge responsibilities. Since the audience love me so much, I have to be responsible towards their love,” says Divyanka. She also rubbished reports of quitting the show, owing to the reported time leap the show is going to take soon. “No, I am not leaving the show. And I haven’t been officially informed about the leap,” she says.
