I’m Done With Cinema And Politics, Says Former Congress IT Cell Head, Divya Spandana

Actor-politician Divya Spandana, who resurfaced online last month after a year of radio silence, has made up her mind. The former Congress social media chief is not returning to politics or movies.

“That ship has sailed,” she told ThePrint, when asked about her plans for a comeback in politics.

“I find this new phase of my life very exciting… I don’t know what the future has in store for me and it is as unplanned as the rest of my life.”

Divya, also known as Ramya, quit as Congress social media chief — a post that often landed her in headlines — last year. The news emerged after the party’s debacle in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls, but she insists she put in her papers in the run-up to the elections.

While she may be stepping away from the limelight, Ramya says she won’t stop speaking up.


In a phone interview with ThePrint, she weighed in on the Facebook-BJP hate speech controversy, saying she has “personally experienced” the social media giant’s “bias towards the BJP”.

She also elaborated on the spiritual journey she is undertaking, explaining how she is making an effort to boost her mental and physical health.
