The moment we take the decision to get married to our partner, we not only agree to those mushy and romantic moments but also to the tough times that might come our way. Being strong together during the testing times is what defines true love. And Yeh Hai Mohabbatein actors, Divyanka Tripathi Dahiya and Vivek Dahiya prove it quite aptly. Ever since their wedding on July 8, 2016, DiVek (as their fans love to call them) have always stood strong by each other's sides through thick and thin.
As the two had all the preps and plans to celebrate their third wedding anniversary on July 8, 2019, little did they know that something unexpected was waiting. For the ones who have come in late, Vivek and Divyanka's wedding anniversary was celebrated in a hospital due to Vivek’s sudden hospitalisation. Vivek was diagnosed with an intestinal infection and liver abscess. (You may Also Like: Sangeeta Kapure Of 'Yeh Rishtey Hain Pyaar Ke' Fame Denies Marriage Rumours With Romanch Mehta(
And now, in an interview with the Hindustan Times, Divyanka gave an honest update on Vivek’s health and was quoted as saying, “Vivek has been discharged but he is still recovering at home. The doctors have asked him to take it easy for the next three to four weeks. He must have had contaminated food which led to the infection. After we returned from Macau, China at the end of last month, he got fever, but the anti-biotics didn’t help. We had no idea that it was so serious.”
Divyanka also shared that Vivek’s hospitalisation days were the most disturbing ones for her and that “it was a scary time”. She also shared that it was horrible to see Vivek in such a condition, “Those five days were hell for me and our families. I burst out crying as it was devastating to see him so unwell. We take all decisions mutually, and here, I had to decide everything from the hospital to the doctor to the care given to him. I wanted to ask him for his opinion, but I had to take the tough decisions. I got really scared for him. He is so positive and made us smile after he felt better. We take our health for granted, eat out but we can never say what affects our bodies. At times like these, we realise that money and fame don’t matter. Love and the people around you do. Moreover, we also realised who really cares about us. Many people we thought were our friends didn’t even reach out to us. We got a reality check.” (Checkout: Sharmin Segal Of 'Malaal' Fame Opens Up About Being Fat-Shamed And Bullied In School)
The actress further lamented on how she dealt with the steroid rumours that surrounded Vivek. The Banoo Main Teri Dulhan actress remarked, “The rumours were hurtful. Vivek doesn’t have a steroid body and has been working out for years now. He has a lean physique, not a pumped-up body. I felt bad about such rubbish and reacted strongly on social media.”
On their anniversary, Divyanka had taken to her official Instagram handle and shared clicks from the hospital, along with the caption that could be read as, “Unique Anniversary bring in is this. When the family sneaked in a cake to surprise us. When Viv and I exchanged a high-five instead of a piece of cake! #HappyAnniversary love!” On the other hand, Vivek too had wished her on social media by writing, “Through good times and bad, through sickness and health. Thanks for giving me these beautiful 3 years. Happy Anniversary my love @divyankatripathidahiya.” Take a look:
Revealing their actual anniversary plans if things would not been like this, Divyanka had said that they would be in the UK. Here’s what Div retorted, “We would have been in the UK, celebrating our third anniversary had Vivek not fallen ill. I was finishing a bank for Yeh Hai Mohabbatein so that we could go for a vacation. I got a call from him that he is getting admitted and I left everything and came running to the hospital. A night prior he had a high fever and main thande paani ki patiyaan rakh rahi thi puri raat."
