The book was officially launched by Shabana Azmi and Javed Akhtar.
The other eminent guests present were Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, Sriram Raghavan, Gurdas Maan, Deepak Bahry, Sameer Nair, and Rajit Kapur who also hosted the event.
The mood was happy. Everyone spoke about their bond with the actress while Gurdas Maan sang Kudiye Kismat Di Ae and mesmerized everyone.
The event started with Dutta reading an excerpt from the book in her captivating voice.
Sriram Raghavan said,
“I have read a few chapters and loved the way Divya has written it. We meet every 3-4 months and discuss films whenever I am making anything. She has become a friend. She is fun and crazy”.
Javed Akhtar was at his humorous best, he said,
“I have just seen the book and I don’t know what to say since I have not read the book yet. Instead of her writing, I will talk about the writer. There is a twinkle in her eyes and she is always eager to learn more. Kuch log hote hain ki jo ho gaya so ho gaya, lekin unme apne ko improve karne ki, aur door tak le jaane ki, tamanna aur koshish hoti hai, ye hai wo ladki hai”.
Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra quoted poet Subramanyam Bharti’s ‘Nirbhay’ and said that the poem suit Divya as she is Nirbhay (fearless).
