Divyanka and Vivek 1st wedding anniversary special: Recap of DiVek’s romantic journey


One of the most-loved real life TV couple Divyanka Tripathi and Vivek Dahiya has completed one year of their marriage. The couple got hitched together in 2016. The wedding was done according to Hindu traditions, and was one of the biggest news of that time, as DiVek fans were eagerly waiting for every-minute updates. Their love story blossomed day-by-day since they met but many people might not know their actual love story.

Divyanka’s past life

Divyanka was in a relationship with TV actor Ssharad Malhotra. The duo was dating for long nine years. Surprisingly, they even kept their relationship under wrap for many years. However, they broke up in 2015. Since then, Divyanka was heartbroken but her family members were helping her to get out from the trauma. Also when ‘Yeh Hai Mohabbatein’ started climbing the success of TRPs, Divyanka got busy in her work and forget everything.

Vivek’s entry in Yeh Hai Mohabbatein

Vivek Dahiya was struggling to find his feet in the TV industry. He first came in front of an audience in 2015 with TV show ‘Ek Veer Ki Ardaas…Veera’ on Star Plus. Later, the soul mate of Divyanka’s life entered in ‘Yeh Hai Mohabbatein’ in 2015 as an ACP Abhishek.

Jab Divyanka Met Vivek

When Vivek entered ‘Yeh Hai Mohabbatein’, Divyanka was already a leading lady of the show. Thus, she had barely a few scenes with him. After her engagement with Vivek, Divyanka said in an interview that “We barely have scenes with each other in Yeh Hai Mohabattein, so we hardly spoke to each other. We didn’t have each other’s phone number. Sirf ‘Hi’, ‘Bye’ tha hamare beech,” she stated in MSN.

First Step of love for DiVek

There was no love at first between them. It happened when one of the tops associated with the show asked everyone to introduce them. And at that point Divyanka and Vivek, surprisingly gave the same view on arrange-cum-love match. In an interview with a leading daily, Vivek revealed that “It wasn’t loved at first sight. It was an arranged match. We were introduced by a common friend who is also a fellow actor. Then we started looking at each other from a life partner’s perspective. We often met after work and eventually started understanding that we are very compatible and similar to each other and we can take it further.”

Finally, arrange-cum-love happened

Like their views, their love also happened by the arranged-cum-love process. In an interview, Divyanka had said that “My mom and dad were looking out for a match. Even Vivek had told our common friend once that he wants to have a serious relationship and settle down. Uske baad Vivek and I started talking to each other, thoda thoda but awkwardly. Suddenly, we felt that we like each other a lot. We would speak for hours and hours, and our chats wouldn’t end. I informed my parents soon after I was sure that I had started loving him.”

Divyanka’s first meet with Vivek’s parents

Divyanka’s first meet with Vivek’s parents happened as it does in the middle-class families. As per a report in MSN, Divyanka said about her first meet with Vivek’s parents that, she was asked, “Do you know Vivek’s dad is a lawyer and I was asked a whole lot of questions for 3 hours? His parents were concerned if I could be a good homemaker since I am an actress.”

When Vivek proposed Divyanka

Divyanka-Vivek’s proposal meet was quite filmi. As per an interview in MSN, Divyanka revealed, “He (Vivek) proposed to me on my birthday December 14, last year. We had gone to Bengaluru together to visit my family and it was the first time he was meeting my parents. Just before the cake cutting, I saw Vivek standing with this beautiful T-Shirt with ‘Marry Me Diyvanka’ written on it. He told me ‘you have everything, but you need somebody who will be committed to you for life. I promise I will never hurt you and keep you happy all your life’. He had a ring in his hand.” Awwww… isn’t that cute!

Divyanka’s reaction

After Vivek’s proposal, Divyanka was speechless. As stated in MSN, she said, “It was the most beautiful experience of my life. To do something like this in front of my family took a lot of guts and I was zapped. If it was a daily soap, I would have had tears in my eyes and said something. But for the first time I was speechless, I didn’t know how to react. I was completely swept off my feet.”

Divyanka said ‘Yes’

Moreover, when Vivek was asked about Divyanka’s reaction he said, “She was flabbergasted and speechless. I had to get a yes out of her. Since I was down on one knee, I asked her are you sure you want to marry me, will you marry me. She just went ‘a a a’ and I asked her is that a yes, and she said it is.”

Like that, their fairy tale love story ends up into a happily-married couple.

The duo is currently working on the same show in which they first met. They have been keeping updating their fans with their pictures. That’s why fans love DiVek.

Happy Anniversary DiVek!
