Iconic Balaji Telefilms show, Yeh Hai Mohabbatein, beaming uninterrupted on Star Plus for the last six years or so, is finally getting ready to bid adieu to the small screen, much to the disappointment of its legion of fans.
Leading lady of YHM, Divyanka Tripathi, who plays the character of Ishita Bhalla on the show, doesn’t know whether to be happy or sad at the show downing curtains soon.
In a heartfelt letter that Divyanka shared with us, she has penned her bittersweet feelings on the show’s ending.
Here’s her letter for you to read –
Thank you for everything…
We all experience moments in life where we find it difficult to decide if we are happy or sad or both. This is definitely one of those instances. I am happy for all the love that has been showered on me by fans during this unforgettable journey of 6 years and am also sad that this wonderful chapter is reaching its conclusion. 6 years I played the role of Ishita, which came like a breath of fresh air, it rejuvenated me and made me explore different facets of my personality. I didn’t realize when I fell in love with Ishita as a character and I whole heartedly accepted it. Whenever I visited different places and people called me Ishita, it would bring a smile on my face.
Yes, I have lived the part of Ishita for the last 6 years with all my heart. ‘Yeh Hai Mohabbatein’ taught me a lot of things, but the most important thing it taught me was the definition of love in its different forms. As Ishita, I got to play a mother, a wife, a friend and a confidant. The amount of love and affection showered on Ishita in the span of the last 6 years is truly overwhelming. I also found the love of my life on ‘Yeh Hai Mohabbatein’ which makes it even more special for me. The show also gifted me friends for life who will stand with me whenever I need them.
As I pen this letter with a heart filled with gratitude and happiness, I hope and pray that I get the same love from everyone for my future endeavours.
