Divyanka Tripathi’s grandfather passes away

Television actress Divyanka Tripathi, who recently tied the knot with her actor boyfriend Vivek Dahiya, lost her grandfather Purnanand Tripathi on Wednesday. The couple, who has just started enjoying her marital bliss, will soon reach Divyanka’s home town Bhopal to attend her bauji’s last rites.

The actress was very close to her grandfather and said that he always wanted me to settle down. Speaking to Dailybhaskar.com, an inconsolable Divyanka said, “My bauji asked me to get married soon, and so I started this new chapter in my life. He cannot go like this. I can’t believe he is gone.”

Purnanand Tripathi was 84 when he breathed his last at his Bhopal residence yesterday evening. He was not keeping well for quite some time now. He was a retired DSP in Madhya Pradesh police and was very dedicated towards his job.
