Filmmaker-actress Divya Khosla Kumar says when she is
working on a movie, it's the story that excites her first rather than going by
Divya, who is married to T-Series head honcho Bhushan Kumar, ventured into filmmaking with the romantic film "Yaariyan". She later helmed "Sanam Re" and was last seen on-screen in the short film "Bulbul" in the same genre.
Asked if the genre of romance is a conscious pick by her, Divya told IANS: "I don't really go and say, 'I want this genre'. The story itself has to just excite me. If I am excited by the story, I go with it. It's all (by the) heart when you are making films or when you are even selecting scripts or acting."
"Bulbul" is a 25-minute film and has been extensively shot in Shimla. Directed by Ashish Pande, it also features Shiv Pandit and Elli Avram. The short film was penned by the late filmmaker Kundan Shah.
