After ruling the roost in Tamil and Telugu movies, Divya made the switch to Bollywood with a bang, delivering hit after hit and iconic chartbuster after iconic chartbuster and at one time, had filmmakers queuing outside her door to such an extent that everyone from Madhuri Dixit to Raveena Tandon to Karisma Kapoor wondered where their next film would come from. Her popularity down South matched Vijayshanti at the time, who was known as ‘Lady Amitabh of South Indian Cinema’, and pan-India, it was rivalled by the one and only, Sridevi.
