Hijacked into acting: Divya

The multi-faceted Divya Menon who plays the lead in movie magnate Vashu Bhagnani’s chiller-thriller upcoming movie titled ‘Mona Darling’, does not flaunt the airs of a typical filmy heroine. “That’s because I was sort of hijacked into stardom by destiny,” chuckles articulate Divya, who is otherwise a qualified fashion designer having assisted eminent Sabyasachi, and also a rock-on singer-cum-guitarist as well.

“When their diligent scout search for the right actress turned futile, ultimately I became the probable option. On Sabya’s recommendation, director Dibakar auditioned me and after a workshop, cast me as the introvertish, timid character of ‘Satyawati’ in the YashRaj period movie ‘Detective Byomkesh Bakshy’. Out here in ‘Mona..’ directed by Shashi Sudigala, I will be seen playing a tomboyish, hot-blooded yet emotionally-driven character Sarah,” informs Divya whose catchy movie title is inspired by the iconic lines of legendary star-villain Ajit.

“There is even a funny, inebriated spin-off on this same dialogue, in our college campus-centric movie with streaks of scary supernatural. The film which is a gripping killer-whodunit, gets its twist when my best buddy Mona too goes ‘missing’. That too, following an explicit social media-networking sex scandal involving her boyfriend. The intimate scenes are uploaded under a fake profile, tagged ‘Mona Darling’,” reveals Menon, who also has the net-support of geek-hacker ‘Wiki’ during her ‘main-yahaan-tum-kahaan’ search mission to locate Mona, played by Suzanna Mukherjee.

“Now that the acting bug has bitten me, I guess I will go with the flow,” shrugs ‘detective’ Divya whose khwaaish now is to dabble in crazy comedy.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)The way you handle an assignment on hand is of importance for your future. Spare no expenses to get work done as there are monetary gains indicated. Change of house or promotion at work is likely. Juniors may have to undergo further training, in preparation for an important position. Work is in the fast forward mode but your love life takes a backseat. Crying on the shoulder of a colleague could be risky more so if the two of you are thrown together constantly.
