Divya Dutta shared that she wasn’t cast opposite action heroes because she was not tall, thin or pretty enough.

In a recent interview, actor Divya Dutta opened up about the early days of her career when she was made to feel like she wasn’t beautiful enough to become a mainstream heroine. She shared that since she was not like the stereotypical “tall, very thin, pretty” girls, she was not cast in films opposite action heroes.

Talking to Hauterfly, Divya said, “Firstly, I was busty. Then, I wasn’t very tall so I wasn’t considered to be one of those stereotypical tall beautiful girls. I used to look so young. And at that time, there were mostly action heroes, who were, of course, big. To fit into the mold was a little difficult. To become like those tall, very thin, pretty girls. I never felt like I looked like a heroine, I had to learn how to become one.”

Divya shared that as she kept working in the industry, she started acknowledging her assets and gained more confidence in her skill because of the roles she was playing. “The things that were first told to me, like she’s busty, (now) I myself offer if I should unbutton the top button. I say it’s okay… it’s fine. It is my asset. I consider myself an asset with everything that I have and I feel men consider me sexy and so do women,” she said.

Divya also spoke about doing intimate scenes with her co-stars. Talking about her experience with male actors, she said that women are instinctively aware of a man’s intentions when he touches her. She shared that her co-actors have made her feel respected and comfortable, especially Irrfan Khan and Manav Kaul. “I have done some beautiful intimate scenes with Irrfan, with Manav Kaul, with lots of heroes but I know I am well taken care of by my director, by my actor,” she said.

Divya Dutta became a household name after her role in the 2004 film Veer Zaara starring Shah Rukh Khan and Preity Zinta. Her film, Bhaag Milkha Bhaag wherein Farhan Akhtar played the titular role, recently marked 10 years since its release.
