Actor-singer Divvya Chouksey died on Sunday after a year-and-a-half long battle with cancer. She was 28.
According to director Monjoy Mukerji, who worked with the actor in her debut Hai Apna Dil Toh Awara in 2016, Divvya died in her hometown Bhopal.
Just hours before her demise, the actress had posted a heart-breaking note in her Instagram story. “Words cannot suffice what I want to convey, the more the less, since it’s been months am absconded and bombarded with plethora of messages.
It’s time I tell you guys, I am on my death bed. S**t happens. I am strong. Be there another life of non suffering. No questions please. Only god knows how much you mean to me. DC Bye.”
Divvya`s cousin Soumya Amish Verma confirmed the news on Facebook. “Mujhe bade dukh ke saath yeh batana padh raha hai ki meri cousin Divvya Chouksey ka cancer ki wajah se bohot chhoti si umar mein aaj nidhan ho gaya hai (It is heartbreaking to inform you all that my cousin Divvya Chouksey died at a very young age due to cancer),” Soumya wrote.
Actor Sahil Anand wrote: “You will be missed badly by your bhaiya @divvyachouksey …. your passion, your dream, your go getter attitude, your positivity towards our industry was unmatched to anyone I have met but maybe god had some other plans for you …I am sure you are in a better place now and in peace …your bhaiya loves you and will always love you. You will always be alive in my memories and in my heart.”
Anjum Fakih shared memories with Divvya on Instagram and mourned her demise. “Wherever you are needy… Am sure that you are happier than ever before… You won’t be missed DC.. you are too special for that… An actor, a singer,a writer,an entrepreneur, a true diva… Shine on behen… Shine on.
