Popular television actress Divyanka Tripathi, who plays the lead character in Star Plus’ top rated show ‘Yeh Hai Mohabbatein’ has resumed shooting. The show has been experiencing a rather dipping phase in terms of ratings on the TRP charts in recent times.
The show, which is an almost constant member of the Top 10 list has been off the list and has been facing a gradual dip in the ratings for quite some time now. Divyanka, who portrays the lead character of Ishita in the show recently opened about the same to a leading entertainment news portal.
“I really think it is just a phase and nothing else. And I do not get affected by it. If one would notice intricately, YHM has never been a rating topper since its inception. We began on an 11 pm slot and have witnessed the most slot shifts than any other show probably. However, that has never affected the show drastically and that is an indicator in itself. We are 3 and half years old now and we are not just a popular Indian show but also a popular global show. So, when it comes to the ratings, YHM had probably topped once or twice throughout its run, but we are certainly consistent and the favourites of people with taste.” Divyanka told IndiaForums.
She added, “Most importantly, we are an ensemble cast who love each other so much that when even one person is not present on the set, we feel a little dull that day. We literally have the Hum Saath Saath Hain’ vibe going on amongst us (laughs). One of the important things about YHM has been that we have always shown real content and that’s why it’s relatable for many. There are many other shows that showcase kitchen dramas and probably end up garnering great ratings. But, with YHM, that has never been the case. Of course, we have to create drama as that is what sells; but our drama and the content is real and relatable. Hence, the ratings don’t even bother me till we are going strong on story-line and execution.”
