People should respect my privacy: Divyanka Tripathi

TV actor Divyanka Tripathi calls the buzz around her July wedding with Vivek Dhaiya “overwhelming”.

Ever since Divyanka Tripathi and Vivek Dhaiya revealed their wedding date in April, there has been a lot of speculation about the details of the functions, the outfits the actors are expected to wear, and so on. Even their wedding invite went viral last week.

Divyanka and Vivek first met on the sets of their popular TV show last year, and got engaged in January. They will tie the knot on July 8 in Bhopal. A mehendi and sangeet ceremony will take place on July 7, and the reception will be held in Chandigarh on July 10. While Divyanka doesn’t mind the attention, she does admit that she had hoped to keep some aspects of the celebrations private.

How are the wedding preparations coming along?
It is finally sinking in — I am getting married! I will be with one person forever. Now it feels real. At times I get jitters, as I worry about things going perfectly. It’s such an important event. Vivek and I are coordinating and organising everything with the help of our families in Chandigarh and Bhopal, respectively.

There has been a lot of buzz around your wedding. How does all this feel?
It feels weird. It is sweet that people want to know everything about my wedding, but they should also respect my privacy. The buzz is overwhelming and pressuring. There are a lot of expectations. People seem to be getting hyper about even the little things, like who the flower vendor for my wedding is. I am a celebrity, but I don’t want people standing outside my wedding venue.

When it comes to dressing up, do you think there is more pressure on the bride?
Yes, of course. Girls have more to wear. They have to prepare multiple dresses for the various functions, and keep the looks different too. Guys have it easy. They have to choose from a few colours and ensembles. Everyone wants the bride to look radiant, so one has to live up to those expectations too.

Are there any specific ceremonies you are looking forward to?
I am looking forward to the pheras and the varmala. In India, public display of affection is frowned upon. But these rituals are blessed by the elders in the family. The bride and groom have a lot of fun during the varmala, as they tease each other, while trying to garland each other. The post-wedding rituals, the homecoming ritual, and the games the bride and groom play to break the ice are fun too.

How many days off have you got for your wedding?
I haven’t taken a break post the wedding as we both have work. I have taken leave only for the duration of the wedding.
