MUMBAI: Actress Divyanka Tripathi has immense love for reading books and this quarantine phase is the best time for her to rekindle that love. While the country is in a complete lockdown situation due to the pandemic COVID-19, the actress has a perfect way to spend her free time.
With over 400 book collection at home that comprises fictional as well as non-fictional ones, the actress has the opportunity to catch up on reading as her busy life did not allow her for that.
Telling about her collection of books, Divyanka said, "I do have a huge collection at home. Few of the books have been gifted by fans and the rest were brought by me as I have a fascination with owning all kinds of books."
She further added, "Due to hectic shooting schedules in recent years, it was difficult to take out time for hobbies, one being reading. However, with the current scenario, I am catching up on reading. It's been almost 4-5 years since I had the leisure to just lie down and read a good book and hence I am digging into my library and pulling out all the unread books off the shelf, ingest them and digest them and it feels marvelous as books have a way of transporting you to a different world from the reality we are currently living in."
Tripathi is best known for her roles in daily soaps like 'Yeh Hai Mohabbatein', 'Banu Main Teri Dulhan' and 'Adaalat'. Apart from these fictional shows, Divyanka has also won the reality show 'Nach Baliye' along with her beau Vivek Dahiya.
