New Delhi: 

Highlights

  1. That's pathetic of you to do a black face," Divyanka was told
  2. "How's it pathetic?" retorted Divyanka
  3. "You guys don't even think before bashing!" she added
Divyanka Tripathi appeared visibly excited about her new look for Yeh Hai Mohabbatein - she debuted her new look this week but what she did not expect is that netizens will have something harsh to say about it. While most of her fans loved her look, Divyanka Tripathi was also trolled for sporting a darker skin colour than usual to play a Haryanvi character on the show. The idea to wear dark make-up was considered as "disgusting" by one user and this is what was written in the comments section: "That's pathetic of you to do a black face for a TV serial. Being dark is not a bad thing and this is really disgusting of you to do."

But Divyanka will have none of it and responded sternly to the user, asking: "If I chose to be dark... How's it pathetic? Do you find it pathetic? You guys don't even think before bashing! Which Indian actor will voluntarily choose to look dark on screen? It's not usual!" In another comment, Divyanka added: "Know me first before judging! I'm doing that make up myself! Every day! So please... Watch the track, understand and respect instead of writing baseless provocative comments!"
