The actress also claims that people try to take advantage of newcomers in several ways and lure them to believe that every beginner had the same experience.
Talking to the entertainment portal, Divyanka Tripathi said, “You finish a show, and then your struggle starts again. There was a time when there was no money. I had to pay my bills, EMIs, etc. There was a lot of pressure. Then an offer comes, ‘You have to be with this director and you’ll get a big break’. But why me? I was told that ‘you are really intellectual, this, that.’ Selling it off like my life will be made just by that and everyone is doing it.”
Banoo Main Teri Dulhann actress added, “This is before the #MeToo movement. People who make such offers, they will convince you in such a way that everyone in the industry is doing it. This is how they lure you that if you don’t do it then you will stay behind.”
Divyanka Tripathi further shares, “Nothing can happen in your career. In fact, they have sometimes gone to the level that if you don’t do it then we will ruin your career. But I would have a lot of fun because I knew this was all rubbish. I had seen it in the beginning; I had got my first job based on my talent. So if I got my first job based on my talent, so the next will also be the same.”
