Actress Divyanka Tripathi, who says she is a mountaineer, says she is happy to keep her “adventurous passion going” even while doing a daily soap.
She recently shot a "risky" sequence for the popular show "Yeh Hai Mohabbatein".
The last few episodes of the show featured Ashok (Sangram Singh) trying to kill Raman (Karan Patel), while Ishita was seen saving her husband. The sequence was shot in a real location in Mumbai near mountain areas and both Karan and Divyanka decided to do it on their own.
“I feel blessed to keep my adventurous passion at peak while doing a daily soap. The most difficult part was to look stressed out and scared, but honestly I enjoyed it,” Divyanka said in a statement.
"Not many know that I'm a mountaineer and my love for adventure will never die. I'm also a gold medallist in rifle-shooting, so I'm always up for any kind of adventure.
"With daily soap, I had lost touch with sports and thrill in life but I'm glad that being a normal 'bahu', I also get to do such stunts in the show. so I'm happy that I'm in constant touch with both my passions -- acting and adventure," she added.
“Yeh Hai Mohabbatein”, which airs on Star Plus, also features Anita Hassanandani and Ruhanika Dhawan.
