With the epithet 'Sandalwood Queen', her entry into politics and a successful stint in Kollywood, Divya has done quite a bit and in very little time, too.
When you look at her, she reminds you of Thumbelina, but as she begins to speak, you realise that she is a force to be reckoned with.
Her tongue-in-cheek responses to questions, sarcasm interspersed with notoriety and a nonchalant attitude about most things in life are all extremely endearing.
In a chat with Chandini K, Divya talks about her childhood, entry into films, her dabblings with politics, love life and more.
