Divyanka Tripathi is one of the most popular television actresses. She is known for her acting chops and good looks. The diva gained immense fame for her stint in the TV show Yeh Hai Mohabbatein.
The actress revealed that she has been on the receiving end of ‘indecent proposals’ from men in the industry. She said that she has never given in and knows how to turn them down ‘while being kind’. Divyanka said that some men make every attempt to ruin the woman’s image in the industry if their egos are hurt. She said that she faced such character assassination too, but it happened in the initial days of her career.
In an interview, the actress said that while not all men in the industry have behaved inappropriately with her, she had some bad experiences. “There definitely are some men who just can’t take ‘no’ for an answer. They make indecent proposals and make inappropriate remarks. And would you believe that they still want to be respected? If you retaliate or don’t respect them, they make sure that they spoil your name,” she said.
She added, “They take it to their ego. Character assassination karne ki koshish karte hain (They engage in character assassination). I have faced it. But I was new then and like today, even then I was sure of myself; I never succumb to such pressures. Few try to get overpowering but I don’t let them. While being kind, I can still put across my point and say ‘No means No’. I know how to hold my ground.”
