Television actress Divyanka Tripathi underwent a major hair transformation for her debut digital show Coldd Lassi Aur Chicken Masala. In the series, she is seen portraying the role of a chef named Nitya who is a perfect example of a contemporary woman, one who lives life on her own terms and conditions. For this character, the actress had to chop off her long hairs for a shoulder-length wavy hairdo.
Taking to her Instagram page, Divyanka revealed that she felt bad to chop her long hairs. She posted then and now pictures and captioned the same as, "Sweet sacrifices for work. A transforming session with @iadhuna for #ColddLassiAurChickenMasala (on 12th April 2019) #HairChop #DilPePatthar #workpagalpan #transformation." (sic)

Talking about the change in the hairdo in the web series, Divyanka had earlier mentioned, "My character Nitya is an impulsive yet a versatile modern woman. One who believes in love and commitment but also takes a stand for her self-worth and respect when need be. Honestly, the demeanor, the shades of the character were very different from my true self. I knew I had to completely absorb the character to play it to perfection. So to look my part, I first chopped off my hair. My long hair has always been my pride but I knew this character needed some sacrifice to be mine (laughs). I did feel weird at first and with shoulder-length cropped hair and felt something missing. But when I got so many compliments from everybody around I felt more confident and at peace. Change in hairstyle can add or change a lot in your personality. I then felt I have started to enter Nitya’s skin.”
Apart from CLACM, Divyanka is playing the role of Ishita in Ekta Kapoor’s Yeh Hai Mohabattein.
