Fan shared old video of late Divya Bharti
In an old video, shared by a fan page on Instagram, Divya had responded to the question about signing her first autograph. She had said, “Hann buri tarah se yaad hai (Yes, I remember it very well). I signed the autograph and my mom said, ‘Aare pehla autograph sign kiya hai, ladki ka naam toh puch (This is the first autograph that you are signing, ask the girl’s name)’.
“She is a school-going kid, mere se bhi choti thi (She was younger than me). If I was 14, she was probably 10. So I said, ‘Idhaar aao, idhaar aao, tumhara naam kya hai (Come here, what is your name)?’ She just looked at me (rolls eyes) and she walked away. Kachra hogaya mera khare khare (I was embarrassed then and there),” Divya added.
Reacting to the old video, a fan wrote, “We can’t even imagine how big a star she would become if she was alive, cozz she is well-known heroine in all languages at 19.” A comment read, “She is so beautiful.” An Instagram user said, “The girl whose marriage broke the heart of the previous generation.” “She was the cutesttttt,” commented a person.
