With off-beat movies and roles,
has made a mark in the Bollywood Film Industry. The actress, who has done films like “Veer Zaara”, “
The Last Lear
”, and “Bhaah Milka Bhaag”, will be next seen in “
” whih releases on May 6.
Talking of the male dominant society, the actress says that the first thing that question that pops up in the minds of the audience when they hear about a new movie is “Who’s the hero of the film?”; She clarifies that this is not the whole of the Indian audience. A considerable proportion of the Indian Audience has appreciated and taken the concept of “women-oriented films” in the right spirit. But the rest of them are still stuck at the “hero” phase of films. She further adds that if a woman stars opposite a male superstar, she becomes a heroine- not only for that film- she will be a heroine even if she takes a break and makes a comeback after several year. The tag will remain because she starred opposite a hero. The same goes for female villains against male heroes- they continue to be villains in the mind of the audience for the rest of her career.
Divya says that she does not choose her films on the basis of its genre- it has never matters. It is her inside voice which makes her say a yes or a no for any film. She admits to have left brilliant films in the past only because she was not 100% sure of it.
