Divya-Khosla-Kumar

Actress and filmmaker Divya Khosla Kumar feels the world would be so dry without women, adding that several women around her are very inspiring.

“I feel so proud being a woman because it’s such a beautiful thing to be born as a woman. I think men can never understand how beautiful it is to be born as a woman because you are gentle, you are so caring and there is so much you give and so much love you spread in the world. I think the world would be so dry without women. I can’t even imagine a world like that,” said Divya.

“You feel very emotional and proud about the fact that you are a woman. You feel proud when you look at the women around you and when you see that they are so inspiring. I think in today’s time each woman is adding to the world. I get inspired all the time from women around me.”

Divya, who acted in films such as “Love Today”, “Ab Tumhare Hawale Watan Saathiyo” and the short film “Bulbul”, is the wife of Bhushan Kumar, the chairman and managing director of T-Series. They have a son, Ruhaan.

She has also directed the films “Yaariyan” and “Sanam Re”, both produced by Bhushan Kumar.

Asked if it is easy for a woman to make it to the top on her own, she replied: “Nothing is easy and I don’t think it’s a gender thing because in any field you work you have to put in hard work and your passion. In the same field, you compete with men and other women, so, your strength, your desire to be there, your passion and hard work matter more than anything. I don’t feel it’s a gender thing.”

Divya will next be seen on screen in the John Abraham-starrer “Satyameva Jayate 2”, which is slated to release on October 2. “I am paired opposite John. I am really excited about the film. It’s a patriotic film. I don’t want to reveal much about it but I am just excited for my role,” she said.

“Satyameva Jayate 2” is a vigilante action film and a sequel of the 2018 film “Satyameva Jayate”. The film is co-produced by Bhushan Kumar and Nikkhil Advani, and directed by Milap Zaveri.

 Anuradha Paudwal, who has given voice to several popular tracks like ‘Mujhe Neend Na Aaye’, ‘Dhak Dhak Karne Laga’ and many more shares an interesting anecdote from her recording days.

The renowned singer will appear as special guest on the reality show ‘Sa Re Ga Ma Pa’. She goes down the memory lane after looking at contestant Anshika Chonkar’s performance on Anuradha Paudwal’s melodious song ‘Bahut Pyar Karte Hai’ from the movie ‘Saajan’.

Revealing an incident from the day of her recording, Anuradha Paudwal said: “Back in those days we used to record multiple songs in a day, so we always were in a motion and our voices were also prone to that. So, one day, while I went for the recording, I was told we would rehearse a bit before the final take of the song, and I agreed.”

“I still remember there were live musicians because it was supposed to be a live recording and I heard the song and went on to rehearse for it. And when it was done, I asked when we would be recording the final one, and to my surprise they said it was done. So, the scratch version of the song that I recorded thinking I was rehearsing, actually went on to be the final song for the film and I had no clue about it,” she added.

Vishal Dadlani, Shankar Mahadevan and Himesh Reshammiya are the judges on the singing reality show ‘Sa Re Ga Ma Pa’. The show hosted by Aditya Narayan airs on Zee TV.
