Former Actress Divya Bharti's Mysterious Death: Being Shot or Just An Accident?

Ankita Chetana |Apr 06, 2020

After 27 years, Divya Bharti's death is still a big question to many people when she lighted up the film industry and passed away quickly.

Stepping into the film industry in 1990, Divya quickly carved a niche for herself with her ravishing look and stellar performance. But suddenly on April 5, 1993, the news informing Divya Bharti's death shocked various fans and up to now, there hasn't been any clear explanation for it.

According to the files recorded by the police, it was an accident and remains till date. The report said that the actress was drunk and then slipped while stepping out in the balcony of her house's 5th floor in Mumbai. Divya still held breath on the way to the hospital but when arriving, she was found dead due to fatal head injuries.

On the other hand, that theory hasn't satisfied her fans that they claimed many other conspiracies behind her demise. Some believed that the actress committed suicide whereas others thought of murder. An old reporter of Hindustan Times even wrote:

"I remember the day...April 6, 1993. I'd just stepped into the office when I was informed that Divya Bharti had been shot. 'Who took the pictures? Gautam Rajadhyaksha or Rakesh Shrestha?' I enquired. My colleague responded by saying he wasn't taking photographs. 'She's been gunned down, I'm told the underworld is involved,' he whispered. I dismissed it as just a rumour, but within minutes, the news was confirmed that Divya was dead. At the hospital we leanrt that Divya had apparently slipped from the ledge on which she'd been perched. There were whispers of suicide, even murder, but eventually, her death was ruled as an accident and the file closed."

Moreover, her family also locked Divya Bharti's death down as an accident. Her father Om Prakash told a leading daily:

"There was no question of suicide or murder. Yes, she did drink a bit but how much can you drink in half an hour? And she was not depressed. She was the kind to give you depression! It was an accident. She sat on the ledge, lost her balance and fell. Sadly, all flats had grills except hers. Cars would always be parked below but that night there was not a single one. She fell directly on the ground. I was shocked and lost my senses. But eventually you have to face the truth."

The actress's career came and went quickly but her light keeps shining as a legend of Bollywood. From an outsider of the film world, she started acting on her own feet and drew a lot of attraction in both Bollywood and Telugu industry.

In 1990, Divya made her acting debut in Bobbili Raju alongside Venkatesh and the film became a hit at that time. At a very young age, she collaborated with some top stars of Telugu films such as Mohan Babu, Nandamuri Balakrishna, and Chiranjeevi. Her hits also included Assembly Rowdy and Rowdy Alludu.

Not only developing in the Telugu industry but Divya also aimed at B-town. And her luck was ablaze when she succeeded in making big films from the 1991 movie Vishwatma to her final film Kshatriya. Especially, she rose to fame after appearing in Shola Aur Shabnum starring Govinda and Deewana featuring Rishi Kapoor and Shah Rukh Khan.

Back to Divya Bharti's death, the Hindustan Times article continued to detail her last moments:

"She was rushed to Cooper hospital, still breathing, holding tightly to the doctor's shirt sleeve even as he assured her that she'd be fine. Then, just as they swept in through the hospital's gates, she reportedly tugged on Dr Lulla's sleeve one last time, before her grip slackened. She was declared dead on arrival."

Though Divya Bharti's death was intriguing, she is most remembered for her beauty, talent, and personality. Have a look at one of her scenes from Deewana!
