Divya, who was able to carve a niche for herself in the film industry, has been artistically inclined since childhood. She often participated in mono act competitions and school plays. It was Divya's strong passion for acting that led her to the industry, though no one from her family had connections to cinema.
Divya Prabha won the second-best actor award at the state television awards in 2015, for her performance in the tele serial ‘Eshwaran Sakshi’. The family originally hails from Ayyanthole in Thrissur, where her father PS Ganapathy Iyer worked as a legal consultant. Divyaprabha studied at St Margaret School and then at TKM Engineering College in Kollam. She also completed MBA from Annamalai University. The actor currently lives in Kochi.
