She told us, “His response was pretty simple and very humble. I did apologise to him for causing any trouble. Because many of my friends tagged him on social media so that it reached out to him and it did reach. I felt all these might have troubled him and hence apologised. He wrote, ‘I am humbled and very overwhelmed. I will surely let you know if there are any auditions’.”
Why did you reach out to Anurag Kashyap?
“A certain bond was created recently. And for some reason I thought he would be able to relate to me or whatever I am thinking. I had attended his workshops in Prithvi theatre and his words there inspired me. Despite being such a big filmmaker he still remembers where he came from, the people who had been with him, his love for cinema. I wish my journey would have been a little different. I had no one to guide me and went with reality shows,” Divya replied.
What made you create the video appealing to Anurag for work?
I was sitting with my team and they were telling me what I should take up next for work. But everything was repetitive. So they asked me if I knew of anyone and kept suggesting things. I thought of using my social media platform to reach out.
Divya recently took to social media and posted a video requesting him to guide her on how to go about auditioning for a film of his.
Divya has done quite a lot of reality shows and has been a winner of Bigg Boss OTT. She has done several music videos, web shows and also has her own fashion brand.
