Divya Dutta and her dark side
Bollywood actor Divya Dutta ( right) says she was surprised when she was offered an out- and- out negative role in her upcoming film, which also stars Juhi Chawla and Shabana Azmi. She, however, adds that she eventually started enjoying it.
“I’m playing the principal in the film. I’m working with two of my extremely favourite stars, Shabanaji and Juhi. They would make fun of me that you’re very nasty in the film. But when a scene is done by two actors, we keep getting tremendous inspiration which is really nice. I felt a bit different that I was offered a negative role which was a starkly negative role. But when I got completely immersed into the scene, I really enjoyed and discovered the dark side in me,” says Divya, who has played numerous supporting and character roles in films such as Bhaag Milkha Bhaag ( 2013) and Ragini MMS 2 ( 2014) throughout her career.
The actor believes that character artists deserve special mention. “Their importance is the most as they play both main leads as well as characters. But they are not restricted to anything in particular,” says Divya, who is excited about her main lead roles in her upcoming films.
“In one of the three films, you’ll see me in the main lead while in one I’m the main negative while in one you’ll see me in comic role again in the main category,” she adds.
