Those enchanting eyes, million-dollar smile, and that innocent look, Divya Om Prakash Bharti had ruled the hearts of millions. She had swept the entire nation with her stunning looks and a mere mention of her name still brings back the beautiful song, Saat Samandar Paar Main Tere to our memories.

There had been a lot of stories pertaining to her death. Even her husband, producer, Sajid Nadiadwala had been blamed but the truth about her death still remains a mystery.
After the death of Divya Bharti, Sajid had gone on to marry a journalist named, Warda Khan Nadiadwala. In a live chat with Bollywood Hungama, Warda Nadiadwala opened up about Sajid’s ex-wife, Divya Bharti. She spoke about how she has been frequently trolled over Divya. She also added that even after 27 years of Divya’s death, she is still an integral part of their lives and they still cherish her memories. Talking about the same, she stated, “I know people keep throwing these questions sometimes. Sometimes they think I am being trolled. Divya is still very much a part of our lives. Her family, her dad, her brother Kunal, they are like our family, they are a part of each celebration. So when you guys try to troll me, please know that I am not getting trolled. On her anniversaries and birthdays, we speak to each other. When my children watch her movies, they call her ‘Badi Mummy’. So, guys, she is still a very, very beautiful part of our lives.”
She went on to elaborate on the bond Sajid shares with Divya’s family and especially his bond with Divya’s father. She retorted, “Sajid is so close, Sajid is like a son to dad, after mumma (Divya’s mother) passed away. You can’t even imagine how close dad and Sajid are. And Kunal and Sajid... they talk just like brothers would. And I have not tried to replace her ever. I have made my own place. Memories are always beautiful. So, stop trolling me! She is a part of my life, and we are enjoying. Sometimes people say, ‘Divya Bharti bahot acchi thi. Of course, bahot acchi thi yaar. We love her. She is very much a part of my life.” (Also Read: Dipika Kakar Shares Pictures Of First Sehri With Husband, Shoaib Ibrahim, Nails The No-Makeup Look)
