One is a pretty lass from Uttar Pradesh; other is a stocky stud from Patna. She made a name for herself as the doting and sobbing bahu of Banoo Main Teri Dulhann fame. He’s became a gay icon as Roseish of Sarabhai vs Sarabhai fame. (Mind you, Roseish was no gay but it’s just his way of talking that appeared girlish)
Based on their past, the duo have nothing in common. Yet they find themselves shooting under one roof. Divanyka Tripathy and Rajesh Kumar are Mrs. and Mr. Sharma Allahabadwale. It’s Diyanka’s maiden comedy show. Despite their indifferent personalities, there’s one common thing between the two.
It’s the troublesome back that binds them together. It’s well known that Divyanka has been suffering from a back problem from the time of her Dulhann days. Some six months back, Kumar had pulled a muscle in his back too. Back then, he advised strict bed rest. Having recovered, Kumar took to shooting for the new show.
When told about their common problem, Kumar sighed, “I didn’t know that Divyanka too had a troublesome back. Perhaps, the next time when you don’t like an episode, you can safely assume that both of us had a painful back on that day.”
Apparently, the problem resurfaced for Kumar at Mrs. and Mr. Sharma Allahabadwale’s telecast party on 17 May. Unmindful of his woes, Kumar let loose every part of his body and danced in all delight. An hour later, Kumar was spotted grimacing in pain as he held his hand to his back. He took a break for a while, and returned to the dance only to leave it again in pain. That was the end of his celebration.
When contacted today, he said, “The cervical problem has resurfaced in the last five days. Unfortunately, I couldn’t hold myself at the party. In hindsight, I shouldn’t have danced. I’ve called the physiotherapist to the sets today. Just had a massage, and feeling lot better. I’ll have to take precaution for the next few days.”
