Divya said that then she got a call from Mani Ratnam, the director of ‘Dil Se’ and he said that you look too much like Manisha Koirala, so you can’t cast her in the film.

He said ‘Nice to meet you, now got a bump’.

Divya further said that Irrfan had understood that he could push her to do the best scenes. He said, ‘Irrfan knew that she would do it. If he had known that she would not be able to do it, he would not have got it done.
