Divyanka Tripathi: I was dying to do daily soaps

Mumbai, Nov 22 : TV actress Divyanka Tripathi is happy to be back on telly with the forthcoming daily soap "Ye Hai Mohabbatein". She plays a Tamilian in it and says she fell in love with the character immediately.

"It's a huge pleasure that Ekta Kapoor chose me for the serial," Divyanka told reporters Thursday at the launch of the show. She added that she accepts a show only when she "falls in love with the character".

"When I came to know about this show, heard the narration and of course, Balaji (and its association with it), I had to step into this venture," said the actress, who became popular with the daily soap "Banoo Main Teri Dulhann".

"Ye Hai Mohabbatein", based on the novel "Custody" by Manju Kapoor, traces the journey of a married businessman and a Tamilian girl Ishita, who becomes very fond of the former's child.

Although, in between, Divyanka tried her hand at comedy but she really missed daily soaps.

"I was dying to come back to daily soaps again. Although I did comedy for quite sometime because I wanted to explore something different, I was waiting for something different, something new," said Divyanka, who was seen in a lighter role in "Mrs. and Mr. Sharma Allahabadwale".

Divyanka said she will speak Tamil in "Ye Hai Mohabbatein", but without any lingo.

"I learnt some specific words on the set. But as the story will progress. I will speak Tamil, but there will be no lingo," she said.

"Ye Hai Mohabbatein" will go on air Dec 3 on Star Plus. It also features Karan Patel.
