After Veeram, Divina Thakur is now keen on doing Tamil films.

Actor Divina Thakur feels lucky that she made her big screen debut opposite actor Kunal Kapoor, as she always wanted to work with the actor.

“When I signed Veeram, and Jayaraj (director) mentioned that Kunal Kapoor is playing the lead, I couldn’t control my happiness. I have always admired him as an actor and loved his work. I remember listening to Titli Daboch Li Maine (Meenaxi: A Tale of Three Cities, 2004) Maine ten times a day when it released. I also liked him in Rang De Basanti,” says Divina.

The debutant adds that she had a wonderful time working with him. “He is a grounded person. Every time I was nervous, he guided me. While working with him, I also came to know about his social work, which he is continuously doing without letting anyone know about it. I respect him for that,” says the actor, who is also looking forward to act in Tamil films.

Meanwhile, Divina, who has finished shooting for a web series, shares that she is a huge fan of actor Kareena Kapoor Khan, for both her acting prowess and style sense. “Be it Omkara, Chameli, Asoka, Ki and Ka or Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham, I try and not miss a single film starring Kareena. I am also in awe of her style sense. She can carry off anything with elan,” shares Divina.
