Highlight Story


A film titled Dream, reportedly based on the life of famous actress Divya Bharti who ruled the roost in the 90s, is being made by director Vikram Sandhu.

Casting for the protagonist is still being finalised but an actor to play the character inspired by Neeta Lulla has already been roped in. The actor, who was found through an agent abroad is from Greece called Tatiana Tsapikidou. Interestingly the girl is a look alike of the famous costume designer.

While the director denies that the film is based on anyone’s life in particular, a source says that the girl was chosen because of the similarities in her look with the costume designer. During Divya's last moments, her designer, Neeta and Sajid were constant by her side and Neeta was the last person who had visited the actor that tragic evening.

The source also adds, “The film is not to sensationalise the loss of a good actor, but it is just a tribute to her.” After giving a string of hits like Shola Aur Shabnam (1992), Deewana (1992), Dil Aashna Hai (1992), to name a few, Divya Bharti fell to her death from her Mumbai apartment on April 5, 1993.
