Hey People! What’s up? In this week’s #BlabwithSandy, we have actress Divyansha Kaushik with us. She makes her Tollywood debut as a heroine with Majili along with Akkineni Naga Chaitanya and Samantha. Let’s wait no further and dive into the blab I had with Divyansha:
Sandy: Could you let us know a little about your background?
Divyansha: I’m born and brought up in Delhi. Finished my schooling in Mussoorie. I’m currently pursuing English honours from Delhi university while working towards my career in acting.
Sandy: How did you land yourself a role in Majili?
Divyansha: I’d signed up with an agency that helped me set up an audition with director Shiva sir. I had my audition, then my look test and then yes, I was finalized!
Sandy: What is your role going to be all about? What are the locations that you shot in for Majili?
Divyansha: I play Chay’s childhood love interest. My character is a North Indian girl. A navy officer’s daughter. She’s very strong headed and she will definitely stay in your hearts. The locations we shot at were Hyderabad and Vizag.
Sandy: A few anecdotes on director Shiva Nirvana.
Divyansha: Shiva sir has been so encouraging and always trying to get the best out of me. His trust in me and the liberty he gave me as an actor is the reason I’m so content with the outcome.
Sandy: Debuting as an actress in a film alongside a hit pair like Naga Chaitanya and Samantha is an exciting thing. How was your working experience with them?
Divyansha: I had such a good time working with Chay! He was always so supportive and so patient. I didn’t get to work with Sam but every time I met her, she was very encouraging. I absolutely love and respect both of them.
