Actress Divya Dutta is upbeat about playing her first ever negative character in the upcoming film “Chalk n Duster”.
“This is my first negative role so I am really looking forward to it. This is something I haven’t done before. So I am very excited,” the actress said here on Sunday at the mahurat shoot of the film.
“Chalk n Duster” is a coming of age story, dealing with the life of teachers and their hardships in keeping up with the ever-changing education system and societal norms.
The 37-year-old, who is known for her off-beat roles in films like “Fashion”, “Stanley Ka Dabba”, “Gippi” and “Bhaag Milkha Bhaag”, now aims to tap her potential in the unexplored zone.
