During one such promotion of her film, in an interview with India Today, Divya opened up about her career challenges. She also shared how she earlier dealt with the box office outcomes of her films. The diva mentioned that over the years, she has developed a thick skin, and now, only her family's reactions to her performances matter the most to her. She said:

“I'm someone who is very thick-skinned. I am a fighter. I truly don't fear anything in life. I don't let the external noise affect me. Yaariyan 2 did not do well at the box office, but everyone who has seen the film has appreciated my performance, including my near and dear ones and I think that's what matters to me. Eventually, it is about people making the effort to go and watch a film and once they do, they'll know that I work very hard on every project of mine."

Divya Khossla reveals she got married only to become a good daughter

In the same conversation, Divya Khossla opened up about her early marriage and family expectations. She mentioned how her family was never interested in her acting career and wanted her to settle down in her life. However, she mentioned that leaving behind such a career, which she wanted to pursue with all her heart, was extremely painful for her. She added:

“After my first film 'Ab Tumhare Hawale Watan Saathiyon' which was such a big deal for me, I got married. I was very young when I had to give up my career completely and settle down. My parents were not a big fan of this industry because of the kind of stories that were floating. They wanted me to lead a happy and a secure life.”

Further, Divya mentioned that she tied the knot with Bhushan only to become a good daughter. But she never wanted to leave behind her career mid-way. She then went on to reveal how she faced many more hardships in her life, and now, she has become so firm that no such thing can affect her. She concluded:

“I got married because in my heart, I wanted to be a good daughter. I had an arranged marriage after which I was not working. Leaving acting back then was a very difficult thing for me because I wanted to pursue that. But I still went ahead and took that step for my parents. Trust me, it is a very big thing to leave the fame, leave the career and whatever I wanted to do. Hence, I'm not attached to anything or anyone. I lost my mother too and if I could go through that, then nothing else is left that can break me.”

When Divya Khossla’s team clarified rumours about her divorce from Bhushan Kumar

A few months ago, there were speculations about Divya and Bhushan’s divorce in the media, which started when she dropped her last name, 'Kumar,' from her Instagram profile. It not only raised a lot of eyebrows and left people confused, but gossipmongers doubted that troubles had hit the couple's paradise. Thankfully, Divya and Bhushan then both clarified that she dropped her surname for numerological reasons. The actress' team issued a statement, citing that Divya not only dropped ‘Kumar’ from her name but also added an extra ‘s’ to her name, solely due to astrological predictions.
