She is grateful for her fantastic journey in Bollywood so far. At the same time, she credits herself for all the hard work she has done to be called “a star.”
Divya Dutta has indeed made her presence felt on screen even with supporting roles.
The actress was in Chandigarh recently to shoot for an episode of Savdhaan India, a crime reality show on Life OK channel. We interacted with her to get an insight into her ongoing acting journey, and more.
“I can’t express that how it feels to reconnect with my roots… Relishing gur ki chaye and ghar ka khana. Nothing can replace these joys,” Divya smilingly opens up.
Talk about her acting career, and she says that she doesn’t want to do the kind of roles that she has already done. So, she is very particular in picking up roles.
“It takes a lot to say no to biggies, to big films, big directors. But, as an actor I won’t be satisfied if I do something that I have done once or twice,” says Divya, who was last seen in Bollywood flick Chalk• Duster.
She laments on the fact that Bollywood industry always latches on stories that have already gained success.
“But, again as I said, I don’t want to be a part of repetitive stories.”
Of course, we have sensed it from her work but we wonder what it really takes to stand on such brave decisions in Bollywood?
“I don’t know. But all I know is that I am bold enough to say no to big films of similar concepts and yes to small yet unique films.
“Also, I’ve been fortunate enough that good work has always comes my way. I don’t chase directors to get particular role in particular film,” avers the actress.
Currently, her kitty is full with many Bollywood films, one Hollywood project and one Punjabi film.
Ask her what has helped her sustain in the industry where stardom is given more importance?
“I don’t know. Maybe I am a miracle,” Divya laughs.
Apart from her filmy career, Divya shares that she just finished her first book title Me and Maa.
“This is for my mother whom I lost in January this year. She was the one to believe in my abilities and to support my career choices. Whatever I am today is because of my mother. I miss her, my companion.
“So, in this book I have talked about the memories that I shared with my mom. It will be out by the end of this year,” says Divya while signing off.
