The name Divya Bharti often makes people leave a sigh of loss. The fact that she was lost to the world so young and early still breaks our hearts. But it is important to remember such people by the work they have done. On her birth anniversary today, let us tell you something you may not be aware of. Divya Bharti debuted in Bollywood with multi-starrer Vishwatma in 1992. The same year she had as many as 12 releases including Shah Rukh Khan's big-screen debut Deewana.
