After a look test, Divyanka Tripathi declined the lead role in Bade Acche Lagte Hain 2. In a new interview, she stated that she decided not to pursue the show because she was unconvinced by the character. Bade Acche Lagte Hain aired from 2011 to 2014 and starred Ram Kapoor and Sakshi Tanwar in lead roles. The plot of the show revolved around how their characters fell in love after marrying. A second season is in the works, but it will reportedly feature an entirely new cast.
Divyanka told Pinvilla in an interview, “es, I was offered Bade Acche Lagte Hain 2 and I had even given a look test for the show. But I did not say yes to the show as I could not relate to the character. Whenever I take up any project I totally devote myself to it and it is like getting married to the role and if I am not convinced about the role, I will never do it. I couldn’t feel like the character. Hence, I had to say no to Bade Acche Lagte Hain 2.”
Divyanka expressed her interest in exploring ‘challenging’ roles and revealed that she is reading a few scripts at the moment. She said, ” “I am actually looking forward to a show or film where I can be seen in a different zone. I have a very soft face, I know, but I now want to play an IAS officer, forest range officer, or a negative character, something very different.”
Meanwhile, the ‘Yeh Hai Mohabbatein’ actress is seen on Khatron Ke Khiladi 11 as a contestant.
