Recipient of multiple prestigious awards for acting that recognise her contribution in the Industry we have Divya Dutta a versatile personality from acting, director, writer and today brilliant author, her stupendous performance in Dhaakad fascinated her fans as always. Here with Perfect Woman she shares her journey so far with her Go Getter attitude…
- PW, Dr Geet S Thakkar
- Before this journey began, had you ever thought that Divya Dutta would become ‘The Divya Dutta’?
- Well yes, I am known as an actor, a writer and an achiever, but still I think there are miles to go, there is always a child like exuberance within me to keep doing new things, to keep doing new roles, to keep being directed by some brilliant directors, to keep rediscovering myself so I think life does surprise you which feel wow this is so lovely so like this year had three realises which was MAA where I played a role from 30 to 65. I think it’s great for any actor to play that kind of range and I have Dhaakad which had negative role and I can’t tell you till now I am receiving calls for that role I played – Rohini & Sheerquorma which is an LGBTQ film and all three are different and I am loving so there’s a lot that I still need to do and believe the journey just got in very interesting.
- Your experience till now
- Well my experiences in the industry have been put in a book that I wrote which is called the stars in my sky, it is like a more of gratitude to all the people who made my journey awfully beautiful. I think when you are in a profession you truly love and you really want to be there then everything about it you accept and absorb and take it your side and move ahead. And it’s not like that I have not faced rejections or haven’t seen problems but they seemed little because my passion was very big to do something in the industry to be an actor, to be seen on the big screen and yes I think life is any which ways made of Khatta Meetha experiences and the industry is full of some really nice people.
- How has been the journey so far? What more you’re looking in life.
- It’s so amazing that all the creative people come together to make movies and I have met my own clan and my own kind of people and I think my journey has been very unconventional, I started of with multi starrers romancing hero’s in chiffon sarees which I always wanted to do but then I also wanted to do some significant roles and I think that was my mother’s advice that if you want to be known as an actor then you accept the roles that are different and do them so well that nobody can, Do something so nicely that people can’t ignore that and they write roles for you and today I think its happening what I started that time I think all the actress are doing it now so it’s been a journey of gratitude, the roles are written for me now I’m doing for very diverse roles and its been nice to be called the star actors, to be called somebody who can do any kind of roles and whose name matters I think its beautiful to look back with gratitude that’s as been my journey, I made my own mistakes I got up but I fell down again I got up and I love the part and its beautiful when everyone wants to follow the same pattern.
- What do you like the most about being an actor??
- What do I like most as an actor is something I used to be scared of unpredictability of it, Lots of things actually the stardom of it, the fact that people love you I think it’s a great thing to be admired to be loved, to be recognised, to be force to be recon with ,where people listen to you, they hear what you have to say, they go and watch you’re movie because they want to see what role you have done now, the excitement of your roles and I like this life, I like this living with deadline, running from one shoot to other or one event to other then having these little patches where you resting it’s a crazy ride and I loved this rollercoaster ride that I have put myself in lots of excitement and the best part it’s make you feel like a child always because you’re always so motivated and so driven.
- When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer? What inspired you to start writing?
- I think I have been writing since I was a kid school magazine, then college magazine every one used to say wo ladki se story zarur likhwalena she writes well and when I become an actor to writing my own Columns which were about people and moments that touched the cord with the readers & then I think my biggest fear of losing my mom came true and I thought I must celebrate this mother who was such a best friend who unconditionally and stood by me to fulfil my dreams and I want to tell everyone , how parents can be your best friend & I want to write about her ,I want to celebrate her and hence came my first book Me and Maa, thankfully nobody really thought I was one book wonder they asked me what’s next ,I wrote about movies which was my second passion of course after my love for my mother and my second book, “The stars in my sky” and I got the best author award. I like it and I am enjoying this journey of being a writer.
- How do you look at your film journey?
- My forth coming film’s are Ssharmaji Ki Beti directed by Tahira Kashyap ,Nazar Andaaz which is a T-Series film, Umesh Shukla’s Aankh Micholi, Debarked Banerjee’ Tees and Anubhav Sinha’s Abhi to party shuru hui hai, a show with Amazon, an anthology with RSVP and two English projects.
- What was your thought just before the day your book was about to hit the markets?
- My thought just before my book hits the market was just like it is, when you know, a film is about to release. You have given it your best shot , you have worked straight from your heart whatever words ‘I wrote’ came straight from me and I think when you’re as sincere and genuine as straight from the heart, the rest you leave at your readers and your audience and that’s exactly what happened and I think I got actual love for my first book, I never forget how people have come and hug me for my first book and thank you for reintroducing us to our parents because sometimes we take them for granted. So I think my mom make a zariya or source for me spread the love that she had given me and I’m so glad I could different ways.
- Your Inspiration?
- What’s my inspiration, Hmmm I think I have said the name so many time, it’s my mother and all those actors that I have so love to Mr. Bachchan , Shabana Ji , be it all the directors I have worked with- they, their lives and their works have been my inspiration.
- What is the story behind the successful Divya Dutta?
- Well behind the successful Divya Dutta is a child like women who wanted to be the Divya dutta and she is extremely elated to be what she wanted to be. Behind the successful Divya dutta is her mother who always stood by her. I think you really need that parents who believe in you and henceforth that believe kind of rubs on to you don’t really want let the parent down and I think this really feel nice and behind the successful Divya Dutta is again my crazy passion for my movie’s and what I do and that keeps me going, keeps me experimenting and keeps me driven always.
- I just love where I am and just that makes me ‘Me’.
- Where will we see Divya Dutta next?
- Where you will see me next is the movies I already spoke about but apart from that you would see me expanding my horizons in things I love doing and that even I don’t know but of course I will write.

On the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti, celebrities share Gandhiji’s learnings and the ways to follow these today!
I heard a story about Mahatma Gandhi that one day he was near a river and he asked Jawaharlal Nehru ji to give water so that he could wash his hand. Nehru ji said there is a river, you can wash there but Gandhi ji said, if everyone will think there is lots of water, they will waste water then that’s not a right thing so my biggest lesson is never waste water. I tried Gandhi giri but these days it’s difficult to handle Gandhi giri. I follow Bhagat Singh.
Gandhi Ji was a great man and that’s why everyone calls him Bapu. The biggest learning from him is the patience he had. Along with the patience he had dedication as well. To make India free, he never lost his patience and was always behind to achieve freedom. I learned that, to do work you have to give your 100% and you will definitely get the result, though not immediately. Talking about Gandhigiri, once when I was driving, one of the guys hit my car from behind, I didn’t create a scene, rather told him that if he was able to pay then he can or else not an issue I will repair my car myself. Everything is about patience. If you are at fault then just pay for the damage and the matter is solved. The other thing that I learned from Bapu is consistency. Keep doing the work unless and until you do not achieve it. And even I tell my friends and family that they should follow it
The most important lesson I have learnt is that it’s not important to be human but, you should be human and take into consideration other people’s feelings before saying or doing something that could hurt them. Why people react is because they are in a different situation and it’s for others to understand that and that’s being humane. Also, I’m a huge animal lover so being compassionate towards animals is something that I have always practised.
I always follow Gandhi Ji’ s saying that is bura Na dekho, bura Na bolo and bura Na Suno. Gandhi Ji always taught us that we should keep moving forward with simple thinking and never hurt anyone. I have implemented his lessons very seriously in my life. His life journey was exemplary. Now the time has changed and there is cut throat competition but still we should keep being ourselves and never do bad to others. His belief was that no religion should have a monopoly on the truth. Mahatma Gandhi certainly encouraged friendship between different religions. He always told the people to do their work on their own without depending on others. I truly believe in the same too. What Gandhi achieved in his life was a miracle. He lived in the hearts of millions of Indians and was respected by all. He laid great emphasis on banishing untouchability, promoting Hindu-Muslim unity, promoting literacy and in the development of a great nation —India. He moved the people with his sincerity and sacrifice. Even after all these years, his principles, dedication and mission continue to inspire me and our country.
Mahatma Gandhi is one of the most inspirational figures in the world. It’s important that we as a generation are able to see him for the individual that he was and not merely his politics, although we as a country are deeply indebted to him for his contribution. But the true inspiration lies in his personal transformation from a man acting out of ambition to a man acting out of love. His personal journey is something we should all know about and should reflect on from the perspective of our own lives. His life teachings would be relevant always, and to everyone, because that’s what our lives are really about, “Experiments with Truth”.
Mahatma Gandhi was definitely one of the most important personalities who collectively led the freedom fighting struggle. His approach towards non-violence was proof that he was a person with conviction. He did prove that all aggressions need not be violent though it can be very difficult to walk that path. I personally feel that most of the thoughts were right except a few which are debatable. There are a lot of sayings that came from him and are documented… such thoughts can come only from an intellectual, wise man… but unfortunately in today’s world most of the people will rather use them as actions on their social media posts than implying those values in real life. This is the bitter truth of the new age society we are living in
Mahatma Gandhi’s sayings are very relevant and are very apt for today’s generation. We can learn a lot from him. His life was an example of dedication and self belief. He still is a legend and will always be. Every time you look at the note you see him and he is very much alive and still with us.
Truth and non violence is what I have learned from Mahatma Gandhi’s teachings. It is very important for humanity that we should all follow his teachings.
Yogesh Tripathi and Kamna Pathak – the dabbang jodi from &TV’s Happu Ki Ultan Paltan celebrate Navratri in Madhya Pradesh
Navratri is one of the most revered festivals in India, celebrated with great enthusiasm across several states. In Madhya Pradesh, the festival is celebrated on a grand scale, with devotees observing the nine-day fast, paying respect to the nine different forms of Goddess Durga, and flocking to various local dandiya grounds to play Garba along with their close ones. Joining these celebrations this year in MP were &TV’s popular Jodi from Happu Ki Ultan Paltan – Daroga Happu Singh (Yogesh Tripathi) and his Dabbang Dulhania, Rajesh Singh (Kamna Pathak), who visited Gwalior to celebrate, enjoy the local festive fervour, exploring the historical monument, gorging on finger-licking street food and shopping at city’s famous traditional art and crafts stores, for souvenirs. And this is what the artists had to say about their visit and Navratri celebrations.
Sharing his excitement, Yogesh Tripathi, aka Daroga Happu Singh, said, “Navratri is one of the festivals that I celebrate with my family every year, and we follow the nine-day colours and daily prayer to Goddess Durga religiously. This year, I am celebrating it at home and with Gwaliorites. Gwalior had always intrigued me, and I always wanted to visit the city someday. And it seems my wish has come true. I had a fun-filled evening enjoying the festive spirit, local hotspots, and street food too! When I was invited to celebrate Navratri with the people here, I couldn’t contain my excitement. It is one of the most amazing places I’ve ever seen. The city has a historical vibe, and the people are friendly and welcoming. In my character of Happu, I have a Kanpuria accent. Many people greeted me by calling out ‘Arre Dada’ and I was touched. The Garba dancing with the people dressed in their traditional attire was a lot of fun. In addition to that, we also visited the majestic Jai Vilas Palace, Gwalior and explored the city. We shop at Patankar Bazaar for local handicrafts, traditional handlooms, and exquisite stone-carved artifacts to take back home with me for my family and friends. I cannot leave any city without satisfying my taste buds, so I did here and treated myself to delicious soul food like sweet imartis and crunchy kachoris. This trip will always be memorable to me”. Adding to this, Kamna Pathak, aka Rajesh Singh, shared, “I thoroughly enjoy the festive vibe, and I celebrate every festival with great enthusiasm. I am an Indorian, so my heart belongs to the heart of India, Madhya Pradesh. Though Navratri is celebrated throughout the country, it has special relevance for the people of Indore. The city celebrates the 9-day Navratri with colours, music, prayer, and yes, with ‘Garba Raas’ too! However, this year, I got this opportunity to celebrate Navratri in Gwalior. I have a lot of relatives in Gwalior and love the city’s rich heritage, culture, and food. I always wanted to visit the city, but somehow it never materialized. Gwalior city is home to several palaces, temples, monuments, and breathtaking views. The city’s overall vibe is so upbeat that I can’t put it into words. Playing Garba with the locals and talking about our show Happu Ki Ultan Paltan made me feel fantastic. Now I understand why this city is referred to as the “musical city”. I also went shopping with my onscreen husband, Daroga Happu Singh (Yogesh Tripathi) and bought Chanderi and Maheshwari sarees for my collection. I own a huge collection of sarees, and my trips are incomplete without buying one from the city I visit. I was surprised to see the variety of bangles, cosmetics, and trinkets. I bought them all to give to my Mumbai friends and a saree for my lovely Katori Amma (Himani Shivpuri). I must say, Gwalior city and its people are so warm and welcoming. I can’t thank them enough for showing us so much love and warmth during our trip.”
Catch Yogesh Tripathi as Daroga Happu Singh and Kamna Pathak as Rajesh Singh in &TV’s Happu Ki Ultan Paltan, airing every Monday to Friday!

REVIEW – VIKRAM VEDHA
Producers- S. Sashikant, Chakravarti Ramachandra, Vivek Agarwal and Bhushan Kumar
Star Cast- Saif Ali Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Radhika Apte, Satyadeep Mishra, Yogita Bihani , Rohit Shroff and Sharib Hashmi
Platform of Release- Theatres
Slick and Edgy
Kudos ought to go to directors Pushkar and Gayatri who had earlier also directed the original Tamil version (2017) of the Hindi film which is being released now. The film is slick, racy and what’s more very intriguing too. The writers have come up with the unique title Vikram Vedha based on the ancient folklore of King Vikramadithya and the Betaal (Vampire), the wise and valiant monarch who would capture the latter, only to be told a story at the end of which was a riddle that Vikram had to crack each time. Betaal – a clever fellow himself, well aware of the extent of his captor’s intelligence – agreed not to resist captivity if Vikram did not have the right answer and did not reveal it, Betaal could escape.
The action in the Hindi film is set in Uttar Pradesh where Vedha Betal (Hrithik Roshan) is a criminal so dreaded by the underworld and the public that the UP police set up a special task force to capture him. The group includes Vikram (Saif Ali Khan) and his dear friend Abbas (Satyadeep Mishra) In their cat-and-mouse game, in this cop chasing goon flick, Vikram comes face to face with Vedha thrice. But every time, a riddle posed by Vedha forces him to re-evaluate what is right and wrong and each of the answers also helps him solve a case he is working on.
Not only the mind boggling action but also the brilliant background music of the film both are overpowering and elevate the film to greater heights, enhancing the enjoyment of the viewer, who remains glued to his or her seat. What is creditable about the director duo, who are also the writer duo is that both the characters of Vikram and Vedha get equal prominence and not even one is dwarfed.
PS Vinod’s camera work brilliantly captures the rural-urban amalgamation of UP’s capital and marries it with this story almost seamlessly, with Lucknow almost becoming a character in the film.
As far as performances go, I should concede that Saif has put a lot of hard work and his passion towards his craft is visible in his body language, the gait which with he sets out to walk and ultimately perfectly complements the character of Vedha while Hrithik Roshan scores utmost with his author backed role, living to the hit his character with effortless ease bringing to the fore the various elements as well as dynamic dimensions of his character with effortless ease, including his Bihari accent, which reminds you of his avatar in Super 30.
While Radhika Apte who plays the advocate-wife Priya of Saif Ali Khan looks the part and has been endowed with the choicest of incisive dialogues, Sharib Hashmi walks away with various shaded to his brilliantly executed character of Babloo Bhaiya, Satyadeep Mishra also puts in a neat performance in the film.
To sum up, Vikram Vedha is definitely a slick and edgy film which will make you sit glued to your seat.It is the triumph of the writer-director duo Pushkar -Gayatri

Samast Mahajan provides immediate treatment to sick, injured animals, Hon Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari greenlights 11 ambulances
Samast Mahajan, for the first time in February this year, set a wonderful example to Sid the voiceless in the city of Mumbai, providing medical care to sick and injured animals with Animal Hospital on Wheels. Now, this service is going to be available round the clock with 11 new ambulances, covering more area and helping far more animals. 11 new such ambulances were inaugurated at the hands of Hon Governor Shri Bhagat Singh Koshyari at Raj Bhavan.
This service is being implemented by the grace and inspiration of Rashtrasant Pujya Namramuni Maharaj Saheb, besides Hon Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari, Union Animal Husbandry Minister Parshottam Rupala, Maharashtra’s Skill Development and Entrepreneurship Minister Mangal Prabhat Lodha and Hon Minister of Revenue Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil. Hon Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari said, “Yug Pradhan Acharya Panya’s Chandrashekhar Vijayji inspired all Mahajans and Rashtrasant Pujya Shri Namramuni Maharaj Saheb with his grace, compassion, and cooperation. The importance of service and humanity is prime. When one takes service as his mantra, then the country is truly free. It is a fact that even when we speak, many small living creatures die. That is why Jain monks used to wear masks since centuries. Corona taught the rest of the world to wear masks.”
Citing an example the Hon Governor “Once a sage was doing penance, when an injured pigeon fell on his lap. A hunter who struck it said. “this is my food.” The sage said he will not let it die, and offered as much of his body’s flesh as the weight of the pigeon in exchange. When the Mahatma cut his flesh and weighed it, the weight of the pigeon kept on increasing. Undaunted, the Mahatma also started adding his meat. God then trevealed how he appeared in the form of a hunter and blessed him. Service and compassion are very important. I bow to you all Mahajans and trustees Paresh Shah and Girish Bhai Shah. We are all very happy with your service.”
Added Girish Bhai, “Humans, animals and nature have special importance in this world. Our culture and scriptures have proved this fact before Science reiterates it. Whenever and wherever we get the privilege of helping the voiceless in one form or another, I consider it to be the grace of God and the true meaning of my human life.
“Now with the number of ambulances being 11, treatment for animals will be available immediately in any corner of the Mumbai Metropolitan Region. To fulfill this objective, we will divide Mumbai into eleven divisions and deploy one ambulance in each department. I look forward to being of more service to the voiceless.”
