Divyanka Wanted to Become an Army Officer
Divyanka always wanted to become an officer in the Indian army. Perhaps that is why she went to the Nehru Institute of Mountaineering, Uttarkashi to complete a course on mountaineering. Don’t be surprise when I tell you the delicate Ishita Bhalla of Yeh Hai Mohabbatein has won a gold medal in ‘Rifle Shooting’. What’s more? The girl is an exec at the Bhopal Rifle Academy.
…But Then She Was Declared Winner of Zee Cinestar Ki Khoj from Bhopal Zone
Divyanka Tripathi is a winner of Zee Cinestar Ki Khoj from Bhopal in its Season 1. Her co-star Ssharad Malhotra (also her boyfriend of 7 years) was selected from Kolkata zone while Ankita Lokhande (Archana of Pavitra Rishta) was declared winner from Nagpur zone. The trio utilized the platform well.

Divyanka Started Her Career with Doordarshan and Akash Vani
Divyanka was first seen in Banoo Mai Teri Dulhan but it wasn’t the start of her career. Divyanka started her career with Telefilms for Doorshan. In fact, Doordarshan is the reason why Diyvanka got her break in Banoo Mai Teri Dulhan. According to the actress, though Zee Cine Ki Khoj gave her the confidence to stand and perform, it was Doordarshan and Akash Vani who gave her the much needed recognition. She was an anchor in Akash Vani Bhopal.
