Divya Dutta has completed her book ‘Me And Maa’ which is based on her mother and other memoirs. The book will be unveiled by Amitabh Bachchan on February 9 at a gala event. Divya says, “It’s going to be memories of my journey with my mother and how it impacted my career. The book is about a mother-daughter relationship and is emotional, honest and very simply told. I haven’t hidden anything in it.” When asked what urged her to pen such a book? Divya said: “It is very strange. I was sitting right next to her when she wasn’t well in the hospital, and the thought just came to me. The book will have everything… It will make you smile, laugh and cry. But it will be relatable and I want to share it with the world.”
Dutta lost her mother on January 10, says she wants the world to know about the “precious moments” that she shared with her mother Nalini, who was a doctor by profession. The actress had lost her father when she was all of seven. Asked if the book will also have chapters on him, Divya said: “Of course! My father was an integral part. I was very close to him. But after I lost my father, my mother had been the rock in my life… She taught me how to look into my dreams and follow them, and stood by me in everything.”
Divya Dutta has done some great work in films and her next movie ‘Irada’ co-starring Naseeruddin Shah and Arshad Warsi is looking something to watch out for and the trailer shouts loud that it is going to be a great one.
We wish all the best to Divya Dutta for her upcoming book and the film.
