As the nation tackles the scourge of China-origin coronavirus, an altogether avoidable scene of poor labourers driven out of their homes by misinformation troubled many patriots and Bollywood actress and director Divya Khosla Kumar was no exception. She has targeted Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal for what she finds his callous regard for humanity.
Divya Khosla wrote in a tweet, “As a troubled citizen, I want to ask Arvind Kejriwal that in this difficult time when the whole country needs funds, why should he is spending so much money on his personal advertisement in the news channel?” The tweet of Divya has rendered her followers a house divided.
Divya Khosla’s husband Bhushan Kumar is the owner of the T series. She has donated Rs 11 crore to the PM Care Fund in the past. While sharing this information, Bhushan Kumar wrote, “Today, we are all going through a difficult period.”
“It is very important that everyone will help. I and T series families donate 11 crores to PM Care Fund. Together we can fight it. Jai Hind.”
As for Divya, she is seen these days working in music videos.
Divya made her Bollywood debut in the same year with the film Ab Tumhare Hawale Watan Saathiyo. Divya then did a course in cinematography and editing. After that, Divya directed music videos for Agam Nigam, Jermaine Jackson, Tulsi Kumar, and a few ad films. After directing 20 music videos, Divya did her first directorial venture Yaariyan in 2014. Divya also choreographed 5 songs in the film, including Baarish, Maa, Love Me Thoda Aur, Allah Wariya and Zor Lagake.
Divya debuted as director for a college romance movie called Yaariyan, that released on 10 January 2014, and then directed the movie, Sanam Re, which was released on 12 February 2016. Divya is also one of the producers of the film Roy starring Ranbir Kapoor.
The government on Monday said there was no plan to extend the 21-day nationwide lockdown which came into force on Tuesday midnight, beyond 14 April, and refuted the reports claiming so. Meanwhile, the number of positive cases in India has crossed 1,200 and the death toll stands at 32.
