DIVYA BHARTI TELLS US ABOUT HERSELF
|Divya Bharti: |
As a child
I cannot remain immune to criticism. I know that I am misunderstood. I am supposed to be snooty. But I am not like that. I am very friendly and very very down to earth. My major weakness is that I get too friendly to everyone I start trusting them. I am gullible to all their lies and stories. I’ve been taken for a royal ride innumerable time. Yet I don’t seem to learn a lesson. In spite of all this, I’ve not become bitter or cynical and this shows the positive attitude that I’ve towards life. I cannot be a pessimist. Neither can I be a hypocrite. I am very frank and have the guts to call a spade. A spade it’s either black or white it cannot be grey for me.
|Divya, her brother Kunal and a Friend|
Believe me, when I say that I can do anything for the people I love and care for nobody who is close to me can ever say that I’ve fallen short of their expectations. I can give my life for them. But I hate being taken for granted I hate people trampling over my emotions. That’s the reason why I have very few friends. In fact just three of them and of course I’ve my family. My parents, my brother Kunal and I are very close to each other. My dad has always given me the best and he always stood by me. That’s why I am upset when people say nasty things about my parents. There is no truth in what they have to say. For I’m not the bread winner for my family, I have been brought up in luxury and I don’t have a pushy mother either. On the contrary my mother never accompanies me to my shootings. Even if she does come it is only sometime bas. Yeah she does come with me for my outdoor schedules. She is the most non-interfering person. But people are used to talking filth anyway. I just wish everyone would leave my family alone.

In fact I like Karishma she’s a very sweet girl and she’s been nice to me whenever we met. Thankfully Karishma is a mature girl and ignored that concocted interview. Now there’s again this hoo-haa about me replacing Karishma in ‘Rang’. What’s so great? I believe Karishma had a problem with the producer over some dresses, so she’s not doing it. When they came to me, I heard the script and loved it, so I agreed to do it. Why point fingers at me? When Juhi replaced me in ‘Radha ka Sangam’ and ‘Lootere’ nobody pointed a finger. Why even Karishma has replaced me in one Mukesh Dugal’s films These things happen in this profession. There are no hard feelings between us. Though of course I don’t forgive people who harm me intentionally, I don’t want to brag but people who hurt me have got paid in the same coin sooner or later, without my doing anything. Everybody has to pay for their deeds in this life time. Take for example Prithvi, all through the making of ‘Dil Ka kya Kasoor’ he kept hitting out at me. But what happened after the release of the film, he is nowhere. But now I have decided that I will not take things lying down I am going to give back.

How could I have gone to meet Jackie in a black car when I don’t posses such a car. I had met his son Tiger once or twice and his wife Ayesha practically a year ago. There’s hardly any interaction between Jackie and me and Mohan Babu running after me with an acid bottle? Really, I don’t know whether to laugh or cry at all this. In fact in another fifteen days time I will be going down South to shoot another film with him. Mohan Babu is one man who always calls me up to congratulate me on the success of my films. Even this supposed romance with Armaan Kohli is absurd. If I was even half as notorious as people made me out to be, then would such a caring man like Sajid still be with me?
We have been going around for nearly one and a half year now. And things have been just terrific between us. The advantage is that Sajid is very mature and a very experienced man. He has been through a lot in life. Whenever I behave childishly or sulk then Sajid explains things to me. He tells me what is right and what is wrong? I trust his judgement he is never wrong. Honestly, Sajid has been very patient with me. Like I cannot be domesticated, I cannot cook to the extent that I can’t make a cup of tea. It was Sajid who taught me how to make tea. Even his sister has been a big help. For one whole week she cooked one particular vegetable so that it would be easier for me to learn how to cook it. The sad part was on the eighth day I had forgotten everything. Once I cooked dal and Sajid practically spat it out. Not only was it without salt but it was bitter too. I guess I am a bad student. Right now I am going through one of the best phases of my life. Professionally I am doing well. Personally I have Sajid and both our respective families have accepted each other. I don’t want to plan out my future, I live day to day. I have become ambitious now. I want to reach the top. I want to be known as an actress of repute. I hope after reading all this you guys will have a better opinion about me. And I thank ‘Stardust’ for giving me the opportunity to dust away all the cobwebs, and put things in the right perspective…
