Did You Know Divyanka Tripathi Was The First Choice For Dipika Kakar's Untitled Next?
A few weeks back, we informed you that Bigg Boss 12 winner Dipika Kakar will be making a comeback with fiction on Star Plus. The untitled show which is being produced by Sandip Sickand will see Karan Veer Grover opposite her. But do you know who was the first choice to play her character?

Well it’s none other than Divyanka Tripathi Dahiya. The actress who is successfully portraying the character of Ishita Bhalla in Yeh Hai Mohabbatein was finalised for the part last year. A source close to the show revealed to SpotboyE.com that Sandip Sickand who is also a good friend of Divyanka wanted to play the main lead for his show. And the actress was also in agreement as rumours of her show Ye Hai Mohabbatein going off air had been floating around for quite some time.


But, the show got extended and meanwhile Ekta Kapoor convinced Divyanka Tripathi for her digital debut Cold Lassi And Chicken Masala opposite Rajeev Khandelwal.


Hence, she couldn’t do the show and after she opted out of the project, the hunt for a new leading lady began and defeating Drashti Dhami, Deepika Singh and Pooja Gor, Dipika Kakar won the race
