Divya Khosla Kumar started her career by featuring in music videos. She recently featured in the recreated version of the song Yaad Piya Ki Aane Lagi which has received a good response. In 2004, she starred in a film titled Ab Tumhare Hawale Watan Saathiyo opposite Akshay Kumar. She then didn’t feature in any of the films and opted to turn her way towards the direction.
But next year, she will be making her big-screen comeback with Satyameva Jayate 2. It will be after 16 years, we will get to see her on the silver screen.
We recently met Divya and asked her what made her say ‘yes’ to Satyameva Jayate 2. The actress stated, “After Sanam Re, I thought that I will give the direction a little bit of a break and concentrate on acting. I was kind of meeting a few people, I didn’t really know how to go about it because being a part of T-Series, it was very difficult for me to go and approach people. So, I did a short film Bulbul and thankfully people liked that.”
“Nikkhil Advani, Monisha Advani and Milap Zaveri (Satyameva Jayate 2 team), they liked Bulbul and then they approached me and said that this is the role. My only thing was like it has to be a strong role because I have just featured in one film and if I am acting again after a long time I have to be presented very well. Then Milap said that I have written a very good role for you and it is going to be a very strong and powerful female character. As you see in the poster that they have given to me, it is really like a bharatiya naari character, so I am very excited. John is also so warm and happy to have me. So, I am also excited to pair up with him,” she added.
When asked her if she is open to working outside T-Series, Divya said, “Yes, Of course. In fact, the video (Yaad Piya Ki Aane Lagi) is a Rao and Sapru productions, it is not T-Series. Even Satyameva Jayate 2 is an Emmay Entertainment. So, when I was on the set there was no one from the T-Series over there.”
Satyameva Jayate 2 is slated to release on Gandhi Jayanti next year.
