"Yeh Hai Mohabbatein" actress Divyanka Tripathi turns 31 on 14 December, Monday, but the celebrations are going to be extremely private to be attended by only close friends and family members.

In an interview shared by the leading lady, she says how for the first time in a few years she will get to spend her special day with family.

Divyanka cut her birthday cake and thanked her fans saying it is because of them that she works hard, adding that they help her keep the positivity alive.

This leading lady may have become a household name with her portrayal of Dr. Ishita Bhalla in "YHM", but she began her career over a decade ago when she started anchoring for Akash Vani Bhopal.

A few years later she was declared Miss Bhopal and later cracked auditions for "Banoo Main Teri Dulhann". The show did get her a bunch of awards and then she took up projects which dealt with comedy.

Mrs. & Mr. Sharma Allahabadwale was one of the few shows she did around that time.
