The year 2020 is indeed a year of disappointment for everyone. When the world is trying to fight with the dangerous virus corona we are losing some creative souls on the other hand in the entertainment industry. The latest to leave for heavenly abode is actress Divya Chouksey, who passed away after battling cancer. The model, singer also acted in a film titled, "Hai Apna Dil Toh Awara" in which she played the character of Sanya. The same film starred Sahil Anand as one of the parallel leads with whom Divya bonded like a sister. Talking to us exclusively, Sahil who is devastated after losing her, recalled the memories they shared together.
When we contacted Sahil, who is currently seen in Kasautii Zindagii Kay, he said, "I was really close to Divya as she is the only person except for my real sister, with whom I used to share that brother-sister bond. She used to call me Sahil Bhaiya and I used to address her as Divya Didi. Last week only we spoke to each other on a video call. Though she was not able to talk due to her health, we still exchanged a few words. She was suffering from cancer in her pancreas. She got to know about her cancer a year back and immediately started the treatment in fact after that she recovered from it fully. When she came back to Mumbai after her recovery she called me and shared this good news. In fact, she took to her Instagram also to share that she is a cancer survivor. In that, she mentioned her experience of dealing with it and motivating others who are growing through it".
He adds, "Last year when she came back after battling cancer, we had celebrated her birthday on a grand scale and we partied hard. But after a few weeks of that, she again called me and said 'Bhaiya mera relapse hogaya'. And we all were shattered but even at that time, she was very positive. And never gave up. Like yesterday only for the first time on her Instagram story she wrote, "I want to speak with you all. Thanks for your messages I am on my death bed. Just pray for my easy passing because I am struggling from the last three months now"."
Sharing about the last conversation they had, Sahil says, "On the video call she told me that Bhaiya ab nahi ho paa raha mujhse. I can't eat anything. I am being fed liquid through a pipe. She was unable to talk properly and I was feeling more hurt as she was a very talkative person. If you had any conversation with her she would not give you a chance to speak. She used to constantly keep talking. Extremely bubbly by nature but completely dedicated to her work. She was a go-getter and used to not depend on luck like many other artists do".
Sahil goes on to reveal that after the film we did she also made an album which I was a part of, along with her. The song was titled Patiale Di Queen. She was majorly focusing on singing but she had a passion for acting too. I will miss her always".
