Interview with VJ-RJ Divyadarshini

By Ergo Correspondent

You took to acting when you were 14 years old. How did the entry happen?

Vijay TV was searching for a child artiste to anchor its show “Nutrine Mahalacto Ungal Theerpu,” I went for the auditions, got selected and became the anchor. From then on it has been one long journey.

When did you get your break in the media?

Well my big break came when I was acting in Balachander Sir’s serial “Rekkaikatiya Manasu”. It was a very heavy character and I carried it off very well. The role got me lot of accolades.

There is a lot of Drama surrounding Reality Shows. How real are they?

Whatever is shown on TV is real. When people come for the show they do not come in for the money but somewhere down the lane, the journey becomes difficult. Emotions cannot be faked. We can fake some one being happy but we definitely can’t fake someone being angry. There was much more gore than what we showed on air.

You share an amazing chemistry with your co host Deepak in Jodi No 1. Can you tell us the secret behind it?

Secret? (laughs out loud) There is no such secret. Deepak and my friendship dates back right to my school days. We are neighbours we are the best of friends from a very young age we know each other very well so I guess that’s the reason why our chemistry has worked out great.

One person whom you admire the most

There not one but many I admire to be specific I would like to mention few people Ms. Dowson, my English teacher from school , Ms .Jayshree my H.OD, Ms . Radhika my French professor and Mr. Milroy Peter, Programming head of Vijay TV. These people have each played a brilliant role in my life.

Why are you called DD?

My brother started calling me DD according to him I resembled the character DD who was a cold hearted sister in the cartoon ‘Dexter’s Laboratory’ and more ever its short form for my name Divyadarshini.

What’s the best compliment you have received till date?

When I was acting in Selvi, all of us in the team had gone for a cultural show abroad. There speaking on stage Radhika madam appreciated me for my performance. I consider that as my best compliment.

What keeps you going?

My love for the profession is what that keeps me going. I am very sick-prone and there is a lot of tension involved too but the willpower in me keeps me on my toes.

VJing/ RJing which is close to your heart?

It’s only through VJing that I got the chance to become a RJ. So its definitely VJing.

    The way you won second place in Jodi no 1 Season 4 is something you shud be shameful about. YOU DON’T DESERVE it at all. Its all becos of Gautami’s partiality u won that position.
