Divyanka Tripathi is one of the most reputed television actresses whose performance in Yeh Hai Mohabbatein is admired across the country and abroad. As the day passes by, her followers on social media continue to mount in numbers. The actress is also listed under the highest paid actress in telly town. 

With a rising fan following, the actress is grounded and encompassed with humility and dignity. She initially displayed her acting dexterity in 2006 with the show Banoo Main Teri Dulhan. After her successful debut, she marched towards comedy shows like Mrs. & Mr. Sharma Allahabadwale and Chintu Chinki Aur Ek Badi Si Love Story. 

Being an actress with handful of experience in the television industry, Divyanka claimed that comedy shows are not given credit by the Indian audience. In an interaction with a leading daily, she was quoted saying, "There are many comedy shows on television today, but in India, they don't give credit to comedy shows. I was part of two very comedy successful shows in 2010 and 2011, but when I returned to TV after a hiatus, all people could remember was my debut show, Banoo Main Teri Dulhann. I kept correcting people and telling them that I had done other shows as well. But I have to say, that was not fair. I can't imagine how actors who do comedy roles on a regular basis would be feeling."

As Divyanka had added another quill on her hat by displaying her act in comedy shows earlier, she opened up about her experience working in the genre. Divyanka said, "It is really tough to do comedy. But once you have done comedy, playing a dramatic or romantic role, or doing a thriller is a cake walk. You become a pro with spontaneity and timing while doing comedy. It teaches you so much about acting and nuance. I salute all the comic actors who go unnamed or don't get their due. I feel they are actually playing an important part on Indian TV and upping the level (of acting)."
