She started her career as a child artist on Television. She grew-up to be a heroine in a Ravi Babu’s film “Manasara”. Her innocent face, beautiful nuances, sensitive acting and very Telugu looking features made the audience love her. Director Maruthi chose her as main lead in his second film ‘Bus stop’. It was a runaway success and offers pour in along side many young heros after the success. But she chose to be part of a poetic film “Mallela Teeram”. She appeared in a cotton saree and sober looks. Reviews lauded her as our own Bapu bomma. After that film she vanished from Tollywood on the pretext that she will not do any exposing.
She suddenly appeared in a Tamil film Varutha Padatha Valibar Sangam. It was a smash hit and Kollywood took her in as if she belong there. One of the craziest project announced with music director GV Prakash “Pencil” was offered to her. Eetti with Atharva, Jeeva with Vishnu Vishal and Taana with Sivakarthikeyan only followed.
In the context of Amala Paul and Nazaria Nazim considered a challenge to her are getting married and packing their bags. She became most sought after girl in Kollywood. People do say, make hay while its sunshine. But if you become greedy it burns out. Sr Divya jacked up her remuneration from 15 lakhs to 50 lakhs, giving way to Lakshmi Menon who is making best out of this opportunity. If Sri Divya continues such tantrums, she would vanish from Kollywood too.
