Winners of Nach Baliye 8 Divyanka Tripathi and Vivek Dahiya are on cloud nine, and rightly so. The couple will soon be celebrating their first wedding anniversary, and they couldn’t have asked for a better gift than this.

The couple who brought the trophy home also took home cash prize of `35 lakh along with a Hero Maestro and jewellery by Orra. However, Divyanka and Vivek haven’t decided what are they going to do with the money.

“No, we haven’t thought about it. We didn’t have time to think about it. We went out with our family, and we had a celebratory dinner. I don’t know what we are going to do with this money. We haven’t planned anything,” Divyanka said.

The couple who has put all their efforts to win the trophy recalls it wasn’t an easy journey.

Divyanka says, “Now the feeling is sinking in when we see the trophy lying here on our centre table. It’s finally home, and it’s huge. It’s been awesome, and we never thought we would reach this far. We just wanted to learn something. It wasn’t easy though, but it’s a beautiful feeling.”

Adding to this, Vivek says, “It wasn’t easy for sure, but I am glad our viewers liked our performance.”

During this process, Divyanka also lost close to 10 kilos, which she considers a huge reward that this show has given her.

“Along with the trophy, I got this reward. I am thrilled with my new look, and I am hoping to find time to restart my fitness regime. My family is here, so after a month I am indulging in eating junk. I will be back with my fitness regime to stay like this, so now I will have to work harder,” says a smiling Divyanka.

Nodding in agreement, Vivek says, “During this show, she has not only lost weight, but has become such a good dancer. I keep complimenting her every day.”

The couple will be flying to an undisclosed exotic location to celebrate their first wedding anniversary on Juy 8.
