Enjoyed playing the negative role in Chalk N Duster
Badlapur actor Divya Dutta was surprised when she was offered an out-and-out negative role in Chalk N Duster, which also stars Juhi Chawla and Shabana Azmi but said she eventually started enjoying it.
“I’m playing the principal in the film. I’m working with two of my extremely favourite stars, Shabanaji and Juhi. They would make fun of me that you’re very nasty in the film. But when a scene is done by two actors, we keep getting tremendous inspiration which is really nice.
“I felt a bit different that I was offered a negative role which was a starkly negative role. But when I got completely immersed into the scene, I really enjoyed and discovered the dark side in me,” Divya said at an event. Divya has been involved in numerous supporting and character roles such as Bhaag Milkha Bhaag throughout her career but she feels that character artists deserve special mention.
“Their importance is the most as they play both main leads as well as characters. But they are not restricted to anything in particular and likewise I don’t like being bound,” she said.
