With so many celebrity couples breaking up, here is a story that reinstates our faith in love. A match made in heaven, perfect companions and a relationship that started with the blessings of the most important people in their lives- their parents.
In case you are still wondering who we are referring to, here is the beautiful love story of one of the television’s most loved characters, Ishima aka Divyanka Tripathi with her co-star Vivek Dahiya.
Their engagement celebrations were quite the buzz sometime back with all media channels covering it. But, we get you all the inside details regarding how they met and when love blossomed.
Divyanka, who was dating television actor Ssharad Malhotra for the past ten years, broke up with him and was going through a tough time. It was then that she found a great friend in her co-star Vivek who supported her in her tough time.
It was not exactly love at first sight for the two actors. They both play crucial characters in Star Plus’s popular serial, Yeh Hai Mohabbatein. And, even though there were rumors doing the rounds about the two dating, they kept their relationship under wraps until it was the right time to disclose it.
‘’There was no courtship as we were looking at the relationship culminating into marriage. We just wanted it (the ceremony) to be a private affair and didn't want to jinx it. Now, we are madly in love with each other."
She further added:
‘’ One of the people associated with the show who felt that we had many common traits--we don't party, drink, smoke--introduced us.”
And, here is what Vivek had to say about the same:
‘’It wasn’t love 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’’

The two got engaged in a low-key ceremony amongst close family members in Chandigarh.
When asked about why was it a hush-hush affair, here’s what Divyanka had to say:
‘’Dus din pahle maine bhi nahi socha tha ki ye dhamaka doongi. We were going to Chandigarh to meet Vivek's family. We thought when everybody likes everyone, then why not turn this into an engagement."
‘’My parents are from Haryana. Kuch Ragini gaaye. Haryanvi gaano par performance hui. Sab logon ne dance kiya enjoy kiya.’’
The lavish wedding in Bhopal was followed by a royal reception in Chandigarh. And, the celebrations didn’t end there. This was then followed by a star-studded reception party that took place on July 14, 2016, in Mumbai’s Opa Bar and Cafe.
Talking about the wedding preparations and when the families met for the first time, Vivek happily said:
‘’Yes. Most definitely this year and that will be decided by our parents. We have come this far. We are going to let our parents take us further. Both our families have met. They are extremely fond of each other. It didn’t feel like they were meeting for the first time. We are extremely happy that not just us but even our families have started to share an extremely close bond. All the joking, pulling of each other’s legs started from the first day itself.’’
The two absolutely look much in love and make a very good looking couple indeed. On being asked what they like the most about each other, Divyanka said that it was Vivek's simplicity that attracted her towards him. She also added that he really takes care of her and makes her feel comfortable.
And, here is what Vivek said about his ladylove:
‘’She manages her personal and professional life really well. That she does it beautifully and effortlessly. Sometimes I have to look out for her so that she gives some time for herself to sleep. She can compromise on all those things to balance it out. I feel guilty but it is not something that many would do for their partners.’’
The two complement each other in every possible way and we wish them a beautiful courtship period. For more details on the couple and their wedding details, watch out for this space as we get you everything as it happens!
