Sometimes, creative satisfaction is all that an actor looks for in a project. And Divya Dutta would definitely agree. We’ve been informed that the actor, who will be seen doing a short role in filmmaker Shyam Benegal’s television show, Samvidhaan, hasn’t charged any fee for being part of the show.
Ask Divya about this and she says, “Like every other actor, it was my dream to work with Shyamji. For me, the length of the role or money are not important for doing his projects. I have been working with him after five years. I have shot for my special appearance and had the best time doing it. As an actor, you to get learn so much by just being around Shyamji.”
Talking about her experience of working with Benegal in the past, she says, “Shyamji gives lot of freedom to his actors. In fact, he had asked me to choreograph my song in a movie. I also learnt how to ride a scooter on the sets of Welcome To Sajjanpur (2008), which was a fun experience.” She adds, “Over the years, his sets have been like a second home for me, and I have always enjoyed working with him. I still remember cooking paranthas for everyone on the sets on my first day of shoot of Samar (1999); that was my introduction to his unit.”
