Divya feels that a lot of false commitments have been given for the development and well being of the disables but nothing constructive has been done. This step of making Mr. Irani as the Brand Ambassador of the organization is giving a ray of hope she feels. When asked why she chose Mr. Irani she was quick to reply, "Boman is very human. He is not only multitalented but also multifaceted. Most importantly he is self made. Boman Irani also has the power to influence change. He is a very approachable person with a human heart."

In fact theatre is not only entertaining but also educative. People feel that my voice is inspiring and reaches the audience. That gives me the boost to come forward for such good deeds."
