In the last six years, many shows came and went off-air, likewise many characters made it to the world of Indian television and got lost in the crowd but one character and one show stood firm over these years not only just on the TRP charts but in the audiences’ hearts as well. Yes, we are talking about Ye Hai Mohabbatein and the soul of the show, Dr.Ishita Bhalla portrayed by the very beautiful and immensely talented actress Divyanka Tripathi.
In these six years, there have been many sequences on Ye Hai Mohabbatein that stunned us. May it be the famous Bhoot track where Ishita pretended to be possessed by Shagun’s spirit in order to save Raman’s life or Ishita playing a Haryanavi character Shanno and absolutely nailing the accent or Ishita being trapped under a collapsed building due to an earthquake but there have been sequences where Divyanka for “real” did the unthinkable as Ishita.
1 • Drove a Bus – For the first time in her life, Divyanka drove a bus for a scene in Yeh Hai Mohabbatein and must say, she simply nailed that scene!
With balanced expressions, dialogues and the needed body language for the scene, Divyanka drove the bus like a pro and was just outstanding throughout.
Needless to mention, it’s one of the most watched sequence of YHM and an unforgettable one as well for that matter.
2 • Jumped off a Cliff – Well, the scene had Raman pushing Ishita off the cliff but in real, Divyanka actually jumped off it and was hanging mid – air with the help of a harness until she eventually fell into the water body.
Divyanka was all smiles while doing this scene but we had our heart in our mouth for the height was way too much to scare us to the bits.
A body double could have been used easily but then, we are talking about Divyanka here, who finds joy in doing all the stunts and action sequences by herself.
3 • Jumped out of a moving bus – Driving a bus is one thing and then jumping out of a moving bus is a completely different thing and courageous to just another level especially for an actress to attempt it. Divyanka just fantastically pulled that one off and what a scene it turned out to be! It left us with erratic heartbeats and goosebumps. The impact of the scene was such that we still remember it, vividly.
Safety precautions were taken but still, jumping out of a moving bus ain’t no joke as the chances of getting hurt are pretty high and it was very brave and courageous of Divyanka to do this scene all by herself.
4 • Operated a Crane Machine – Yes, she did! Divyanka operated the huge crane machine like a pro and we just could not believe our eyes. She looked SO confident throughout the scene both as Divyanka and Ishita and that made that scene even more impactful.
Divyanka ticked off one more adventure in her list while and Ishita scared the crap out of Sudha and made her confess that Rohan and Karan are her sons.
It would not be wrong to say, that what’s “Unthinkable” for others is just another adventure for Divyanka!
Wishing all the happiness and success to the ever smiling Divyanka, always!
