He gifted me a book with a lovely message. It would be my cherished gift for life," said the talented actress.

Divya is now in the process of writing a book culling together the anecdotes she has gathered from Khushwant Singh.

"We discussed life in general.I am writing down his anecdotes. I could never get enough of them," she added.
