Divya Dutta on her role in ‘Stanley Ka Dabba’
Busy finishing the shooting of a lot of movies and signing more good ones, actress Divya Dutta had a nostalgic and a astounding experience while shooting for ‘Stanley Ka Dabba’.
The movie is the brainchild and baby of award winning director-actor-producer Amole Gupte of ‘Taare Zameen Par’ fame.
Amole offered Divya this movie because of her potential to play varied characters. However, the most interesting bit was when Divya asked for the script of the movie and Amole gave her a school text book instead.
Yes, you read it right!
Instead of some hundred pages of a professional script, a simple, part of the syllabus text book was given to her while shooting in one of the schools of Mumbai.
Divya was startled at first but considering the innovative and creative outputs of Amole, Divya knew why actually he wanted her to read the text book on the sets instead of the script or dialogues.
Divya has been shooting for ‘Stanley Ka Dabba’ with lots of small school kids in the classroom and that’s why it also led to some nostalgic moments for Divya.
Well, talk about working differently!
Divya is an intelligent actress and she ultimately did understand why she was given the text book. But if you are curious why, then you have to wait for a little while to know the secret!
