Divya Dutta just opened up on why she first rejected the offered role in film Bhaag Milkha Bhaag as the actress cheekily confessed her crush on Farhan Akhtar.
In a recent interview with Pinkvilla, Divya revealed that she turned down the role initially because she did not want to play Farhan’s sister in the movie.
She stated: “I wasn’t doing it because I had a huge crush on Farhan at that time. I said, ‘Why should I play his sister?’ Rakeysh said but you are an actor, you are a professional. I said yeah but… you know…”
The Badlapur actress further revealed that director Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra explained her that the story is basically about a brother and sister. Therefore, she then accepted the role.
While recalling the shoot days, Divya revealed that when Farhan’s character, Milkha gifted her gold earrings, she couldn’t stop imagining how it would end. The scene turned out to be extremely moving with Divya’s character saluting Milkha, reports News 18.
Bhaag Milkha Bhaag was released in 2013 starring Farhan Akhtar, Sonam Kapoor and Divya Dutta in lead roles.
