On April 5, 1993, a promising actress of her time, fell to her death from the balcony of her flat. 20 years later, a biopic is being made on the life and mysterious death of Divya Bharti. The film will be directed and produced by Vikram Sandhu of Shaheed Bhagat Singh fame, who has also written the script for it.
When contacted, Sandhu chose to be non-committal, “My film is based on a young girl in her teens who becomes a star overnight, and how her journey from a small town girl to fame leads her to a drastic stage. It might sound similar to some real character but it is not based on any particular star.”
Sandhu further said, “We have just finalised the script. The film is in the pre-production stage. My lead protagonist will be a well known actress or a completely fresh face depending on what the film demands.”
Meanwhile, a source close to the venture told Mirror, “The filmmaker is searching for a look alike of Divya Bharti as the female lead. Auditions are on in Karnal, Chandigarh, Jammu and Delhi by their banner Angel Film Creatives.”
Actress Divya Bharti debuted in a 1990 Telugu film Bobbili when she was just sixteen. The film, a super hit, was also dubbed in Hindi. Two years later, Divya made her Bollywood debut with Dil Hi To Hai. She acted in 13 films, including Deewana More >
