Divya Agarwal finally gets a response from Anurag Kashyap after she posted a video asking him for an audition
Divya Agarwal recently shared a video on her social media account, asking Anurag Kashyap to guide her to get in touch with him regarding work opportunities. The actress has now got a reply from him. In an interview with ETimes TV Divya talked about it and shared that in just 90 mins of her posting the video, the filmmaker responded on her Instagram DM.
She said, “His response was pretty simple and very humble. I did apologize to him for causing any trouble. Because many of my friends tagged him on social media it reached out to him and it did reach. I felt all these might have troubled him and hence apologized. He wrote, ‘I am humbled and very overwhelmed. I will surely let you know if there are any auditions’.”
When asked why she reached out to Anurag Kashyap, Divya said, “A certain bond was created recently. And for some reason, I thought he would be able to relate to me or whatever I am thinking. I had attended his workshops in Prithvi theatre and his words there inspired me. Despite being such a big filmmaker he still remembers where he came from, the people who had been with him, and his love for cinema. I wish my journey would have been a little different. I had no one to guide me and went with reality shows.”
Talking about the idea behind the video, she shared, “I was sitting with my team and they were telling me what I should take up next for work. But everything was repetitive. So they asked me if I knew of anyone and kept suggesting things. I thought of using my social media platform to reach out.”
For the unversed, Divya recently took to social media and posted a video requesting Anurag to guide her on how to go about auditioning for a film of his. In the video, she said, “I am sending an open letter to you. I have been in the industry for 15 years and have done a lot of work and even now I am getting a lot of work. I am getting work options like jumping off a building, fighting in a scene, doing more reality shows, working in serials, and so on. No offense but I have done a lot of such things enough sir because I really want to do something that my heart approves of. I had seen you at a workshop at Prithvi theatre, and since then I just want to work with you. With the help of my social media, I would like to give an open letter to you. I am not saying give me a web show just like that or you know a movie. Nothing as such just tell me how to go with the audition because I don’t know even though I have been working for 15 years, still, the correct people haven’t reached out to me for work. Therefore I am clueless, so just give me auditions in a day and give me 10, 20, 50 I don’t care, I am getting a lot of work but I don’t want it, I want this kind of work, the work that you do.”
