National Award-winning actress Divya Dutta, who turned 41 recently, has been a part of the film industry for over two decades, and she says stories have evolved a whole lot from being centred around just one hero and heroine.
“Industry is no more stuck to typical one hero and one heroine films. Now, filmmakers are producing content-driven films. We are looking into more different and diverse stories. It is a beautiful time for filmmaking right now,” Divya told IANS.

Having featured in the latest release Manto and the short film Plus Minus, Divya is garnering a lot of positive response from the audience for her roles in noth the films.
She said, “I am overwhelmed with the responses I am getting for my roles. It always feels good when someone appreciates my acting.

“Both Manto and Plus Minus are based on true stories. I am glad that people are accepting non-fiction films and are keen to hearing more untold true stories. We have so many stories scattered around us and through films, we get an opportunity to convey those stories to people. This is one of the beautiful changes our cinema has witnessed.”

Divya has appeared in more than 100 movies of different genres and languages. This year, she won a National Award for Best Supporting Actor for the 2017 film Irada.
For her, the National Award acts as a source of inspiration as it inspires her to do good work everyday.
“I am honoured that the nation has appreciated my work and felicitated me with the award. I am humbled that people accept me in all kinds of roles. I am gratified after winning the National Award and I want to continue doing good work for my people,” Divya added.
