New Delhi: Telly star Divyanka Tripathi Dahiya has been part of daily soaps and reality shows for over a decade. She has now given hosting a crime show a shot, and says the experience should be refreshing.
Divyanka currently hosts “Crime Patrol Satark: Women Against Crime”, a special series that presents a comprehensive and dramatised account of crimes, in an effort to act as an eye-opener.
“I was looking for a show like this. But then Covid and lockdown happened. I was in a happy space during that time because I wanted that much needed break. After that, I wanted to do something very different from the daily soap zone,” Divyanka said.
“In fact, I have been putting up a lot of posts (on social media) about women awareness and empowerment. I always wanted to work in this kind of a space. Maybe God has his own way of listening to people. Then came the offer of ‘Crime Patrol’. It really excited me a lot. It’s refreshing,” added Divyanka, who became popular in the fiction space with roles in shows such as “Ye Hai Mohabbatein” and “Banoo Main Teri Dulhann”. Her fans loved her equally for competing in the dance-based show “Nach Baliye” and hosting “The Voice”.
Asked if there should be more Indian shows focusing on women’s issues rather than kitchen politics, she said: “It’s about demand and supply. There have been shows that portrayed something different. But they don’t get enough eyeballs or TRPs. After all, it’s a business. When people say that makers should create something different.”
