Divyanka Tripathi has ruled the television industry with her lead role in the show Yeh Hai Mohabbatein. She was recently seen in Rohit Shetty’s Khatron Ke Khiladi 11 and emerged as the first runner-up. She has been in the industry for several years now and revealed that the biggest sacrifice she had to make was leaving tea. Hailing from Bhopal, Divyanka used to love tea and use to had 8-10 cups in a day. However, now the actress is glad that she decide to quit.
Divyanka Tripathi told an entertainment portal, “I am from Bhopal and one thing which has been a part of my growing up years is chai. The biggest sacrifice I have made after coming to this industry is that I left chai.”
“It is during the time when I was doing the show Ye Hai Mohabbatein. One of the actors wanted to follow a particular diet but the person couldn’t quit having tea. That was the time when I used to drink at least 8 to 10 cups of chai every day. I had to shoot for long hours and chai is what kept me going. So I told my colleague that I too would not drink tea for a few days. I thought trying won’t hurt,” she added.
Divyanka recounts, “The initial days were tough because I used to get terrible headaches. But today I am very happy that I left drinking tea. I had some health issues like acidity which went away. Drinking tea with milk and sugar is not good for my health and I used to drink excessive tea back then. After a month or so of quitting, I saw that my skin had started glowing. For a person like me who comes from a city where people drink tea often, it was tough but nothing is more important than your health.”
Meanwhile, Divyanka Tripathi impressed her fans with her daredevil avatar in a stunt-based reality show, Khatron Ke Khiladi 11. Even host Rohit Shetty was all praise for the actress. She also took to her Instagram handle and posted her picture with him. Captioning the post, Divyanka wrote: “Late Teachers’ Day post. A confession – Dear Rohit Sir, the introvert me didn’t have the guts to chat with you, to ask you questions upfront, or crack jokes with you. I just listened to you quietly, got motivated by you, learned from afar like Eklavya (cheesy but true). I gathered true courage to give you a few shy fist bumps or this hug only after I was able to prove myself. Thank you for the lessons taught during this journey. Will cherish it forever.”
