Divyanka Tripathi Dahiya on pregnancy rumours: My silence has been mistaken for an agreement
Television actor Divyanka Tripathi Dahiya has always reciprocated the love showered by her fans and shared moments from her personal life on social media. However, she is not happy with the recent buzz around her rumoured pregnancy.
“I’ve been an open book. I make a point to interact with my fans every few days. I have good relations with the media and they’ve been kind to me. My wedding wasn’t a private affair. I understand that our lives are open to public scrutiny and I’ve accepted that. I share my life’s happy moments with my fans and will continue to do so,” says Divyanka, who tied the knot with actor Vivek Dahiya in July 2016.
The 33-year-old admits that being the topic of discussion among gossipmongers does get taxing at times. “The most disturbing thing is that these rumours, as much as you want to ignore them, become an integral part of your work life. I’m expected to clarify and my silence has been mistaken for an agreement to the said rumour. But as you grow, you also grow over these rumours,” says Divyanka, adding, “It’s a chain where one doesn’t know how it started or who started it. So, it’s difficult to spot the miscreants. I hope people show some responsibility. But, it doesn’t bother me anymore.”
However, the actor, like every other person, does have a threshold of tolerance when it comes to false reports on her personal life. Once a death hoax around Divyanka had greatly affected her family. “Some rumours are work of fiction and make for an interesting read. We even jokes about it during social gatherings. But some have been pretty distasteful and troubling my family, too. I don’t know how, but someone started this outrageous death rumour about me and coincidentally, I was away for an event and couldn’t be reached on phone. My family members got worried and made frantic calls to my team in Mumbai. I had to pacify them and also put up a tweet as my phone kept buzzing for a long time,” she concludes.
