Beginning from last year when the pandemic took control of our lives, the Majili actress has tried to maintain her focus on her personality and skill development.
So while a part of her skill development included taking online lessons for learning kathak, she’s been making constant efforts to improve her Telugu.
During the recent lockdown, while she was at Delhi, she even recently hired a skating training to help her learn roller skating, which she does in her community premises. She also enrolled herself in an online acting crash course while in Delhi.
Divyansha says she decided to go for the acting course also after she heard that two of her friends had also recently enrolled in the same course and were very satisfied with the results. “It’s a month-long, three-level acting course, for which I registered and I believe it’ll help in improving my acting skills,” she explains about the course. “It was a cool workshop that happened over Zoom calls, with a focus on how to better express.”
Scripting her path to success
The actress elaborates upon how she bagged her upcoming film, starring Ravi Teja. Divyansha had done a basic photoshoot in a saree at her home in Mumbai. She then sent those pictures to director Sarath Mandava. “The next thing I remember was getting on a zoom call Sarath Sir. He said he’d liked my look and that I look exactly like how he imagined his character to be. I was on board quickly,” she says.
Given the lockdown state of affair, the script discussions took place via another Zoom call, she tells us. “Sarath Sir and I discussed my character and he sent me a few references on how he wants me to play the role. It’s the gentleness and the chirpiness surrounding my role that interested me to take up the project,” Divyansha explains.
But for Divyansha, the most exciting aspect of being a part of the industry is “being on the sets”. “I never realised that until I was on the sets. Being on the sets drew me into cinema,” she says. “To me, what matters is the satisfaction I derive at the end of the day. It’s the thought of doing justice to my job that makes me feel content.”
