Divya Dutta has embarked on a new venture with her first book ‘Me & Ma’. The book is a tribute to her mother and revolves around the friendship Divya shared with her that gave her strength and made her who she is. The award winning actor has released the cover of her book today. The book celebrates Divya’s achievements and is an honest revelation of the force behind her success – her mother.
The actress who has played important roles in films like Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, Badlapur, Heroine and several others is all set to launch her book on 9th February, 2017.
The plot revolves around an erotic singer from Arrah, a small town in Bihar. She epitomizes a common feature of the local culture of the region, i.e., Orchestra or naach parties. The female performers of these orchestra parties sing songs replete with double meaning as well as obviously lewd and direct sexual references and innuendoes. These women are admired both as stars and as objects of glamour and desire. They are also looked down and derided by those very audiences as women of loose character or even whores.
In this volatile world Anaarkali is the star performer of her troupe. The feisty Anaarkali knows the ways of the world and is ambitious as well as confident of her success.
Until a fateful day when during a performance Anaarkali gets molested on stage by a very powerful man of the region. What follows is a series of events that causes the conflict between the two to escalate as Anaarkali refuses to compromise. The world around her turns increasingly vicious and misogynist.
