Default Divyanka Tripthi: Shopaholic in Dubai

Divyanka Tripathi won the award for best actress at the recently concluded Platinum Awards which took place in Dubai. Divyanka says she had great sun in her two day break in Dubai and the icing on the cake was winning the award for best actress.

“Dubai is a fabulous city. They have developed it so well even though they had no resources with them. It was a very good tour. I have been to a few malls and hotels over there. I did shop a lot. The dress I wore for award ceremony…I bought it from there only.”

“Actually what happened is that when I went with Sharad (Malhotra) for the rehearsals of his performance, I realized that it was pretty cold and so Sharad and I went for shopping. The malls over there are so huge that you will not finish roaming a mall at one visit. I bought that black dress as it has thick material and I bought one shawl also so that it would keep my hands warm. I have bought so many woolen clothes because they are durable,” she adds.

“Then I also bought shoes which are branded which can go with jeans then I also bought confectionaries like chocolates and little jewellery which I really liked a lot. Over all I spent 50 thousand on shopping but it is worth it because such stuff we do not get here and I hardly get a chance to shop over here. Like one shawl I bought from London two years back which I am using right now also,” says the shopaholic.

Divyanka and Sharad stayed at Sharad’s cousin’s place who happens to stay in Dubai.

” Sharad’s cousin played guide to us and because of them only we could manage to visit so many places. We started our tour at 2am at the Burj Al Jazeera Hotel. It is like a cell on a ship and then the Atlantis… they have a huge aquarium and they have 250 species and a shark…it was lovely to see. Then we went to a place called 360 degree where you can learn and do ice skating the entire year but I could not do it as I had no time to learn it. Most importantly I got to see a stretch limo! We clicked pictures with the car,” gushes the actress.

Talking about award function she says, ”The function was amazing and there were so many veterans around us and receiving an award in front of them is like honour for me. Performances were also very good. I was happy but I still felt bad as Sharad did not get the award. I did not feel like celebrating as he did not get but we partied with his cousins.”
