At Divyanka’s request, ex-flame Ssharad urges fans to stop abusing her

Television actor Ssharad Malhotra has urged his fans not to abuse and spoil the image of his former girlfriend Divyanka Tripathi after the ‘Yeh Hai Mohabbatein’ actress informed him of being targeted by his fans on social media.

The 33-year-old actor who is currently seen on Zee TV show ‘Kasam’, revealed that he received a text from Divyanka asking him to make a public appeal to respect their privacy.

Ssharad took to his Instagram and wrote, “Was a little disappointed when I got a text from Mrs Divyanka Tripathi Dahiya stating that apparently some of my fans were deterring her image and hurling abuses at her and family.”

He condemned fans for disrespecting women and further said, “On one hand we have the women at the Olympics making the nation beam with pride and happiness and on other we also have a certain section of people who are disrespecting women..”

“As Mrs divyanka tripathi Dahiya asked me to make a public note, so I hereby request one and all that kindly respect women and please respect our privacy as we both have moved on... I wish her a happy married life. Also I completely believe that true fans of mine would never tarnish a women's image. #respect #women,” Ssharad added.

Divyanka later thanked Ssharad in the comments section saying it was the “best parting gift”. “Thank you Ssharad. It means a lot. The best parting gift. May you have a great life ahead. Be happy. Love to the family,” the actress posted.

Divyanka and Ssharad stepped into the TV industry after participating in the talent show ‘India's Best Cinestar Ki Khoj’ and starred together on Zee TV show ‘Banoo Main Teri Dulhann’. They dated each other for nine years before calling it quits in 2015, much to the disbelief of their fans.

Both of them have now moved on in their lives. Divyanka tied the knot with her ‘Yeh Hai Mohabbatein’ co-star Vivek Dahiya in a grand ceremony in Bhopal last month, while Ssharad has found love in model-turned-actress Pooja Bisht.
