Divya Dutt is currently interviewing for the promotion of her latest book, The Stars in My Sky and has opened up about her life in Bollywood. In a conversation with ETimes, the actress talks about coming from a non-film background and being fascinated by Amitabh Bachchan. “Yes, I come from a non-film background. I didn’t just pick up while walking. If I had it. I actually had this fantasy from the age of four. I am a huge fan (Amitabh) Bachchan and I wanted to be in his movie world. So I wanted to be an actor like him. I come from a family of doctors, so I didn’t know how to present it without giving my wish to the universe. I had nothing left to fall behind. I just knew this was what I wanted to do. I wanted to be on stage, on screen, I wanted to play a great role … and applause. I used to act in front of the mirror, announcing to myself that the Best Actor award was in the hands of Divya Dutt. Little did I know that this would be true after so many years. Things may seem remote, but they happen when you really want them, “he told Itimes.
“The idols I have made in my life are in my book. There are Shabana Azmi, Amitabh Bachchan, Rishi Kapoor, Nasiruddin Shah, Shah Rukh Khan, Salman Khan, Gulzar Saheb, Javed Saheb. You have their names and they have books. It’s about how I met them and how they impacted my life. It has been a wonderful journey for them to know, ”he added.
