Why the name change from Preethi to Divya?
Well Preethi is actually my pet name and Divya is my real name. So for numerological reasons I just shifted back to my real name.
You are working with Jothikrishna, the man who introduced Tamannaah, Ileana, Trisha and Shriya, who all went on to make it big. How do you feel about that?
Yes, I know about that and it makes me feel very special. It also puts a lot of responsibility on me to live up to expectations! I have given my best and its for the audiences to decide. For my part, I know it’s a dream debut.
How was it working with Jothi?
He is awesome. Our screen chemistry is very good. He`s been a real friend and explained things patiently on the sets. He tells you each little thing, including how to emote etc. As a newcomer it felt really good. The film is a rom com and just the right movie to chill out with this summer.
Why did you choose to enter Kollywood?
Well, I happened to meet Jothi at a party in Mumbai when he was looking for a heroine. Things just added up and I auditioned for the role and here I am. But I just love being here. The people made me feel really welcome and I know this movie is a big opportunity for me. Though there was a delay, its been well worth waiting for.
