Her longstanding association with the director Rajkumar Hirani, and how she aims to make this world a better place for the future generations.
In this phase of my life, I want to play right characters, not stereotypical roles. I am not always too happy with the scripts that come to me, says Dia when asked how she is missing on the screen.
Talking further about sexism in the industry, she says, “Female actors are scrutinizing at every move after she is married, but that is hardly happening with men. The kind of roles that are offering to us is different too.
Men are not asking if they will get back to work after they are married, but women are almost always asking these questions.”
Dia Mirza has had a long association with filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani, and she is excited to work on Sanju. The teaser of the film is recently launching, and Dia feels that my career as an actor will take a new direction with this film.
I am playing Sanjay’s wife Maanyata in the biopic, and I am excited about this film.
She also lauds Hirani’s work and feels “thankful” for the ability to work with such a talented and humane director, who enables actors to their real potential.
She shares, I have done two films with Mr. Hirani and both times have great. Playing Simran in the movie Lage Raho Munna Bhai and now Maanyata Dutt in the film Sanju has a great experience. I wish I can talk more about the film, but I cannot do it just yet.
She also added, I was terrified to face the camera after two years, but Sanju has given me the confidence, and I am exciting. I hope as an actor, and as a producer, I keep on growing and evolving.
Actor cum producer Dia Mirza is also the United Nations Environment Goodwill Ambassador for India and has actively started the ‘beat plastic pollution’ campaign.
She shares on the same; We are asking everyone to stop using plastic that is not recyclable or reusable, and thinking about the environment as that will ensure that every human is thinking about a cleaner eco-system and a better life for the future generations.
She also talks with passion about how the world is opening up about bringing in a change for the betterment of the society. When asked about what is her take on celebrities participating in a cause just for the glamour, she says, initially there were notions that celebs were a part of a reason just for the glamour.
But things have to change since then; now I know that people from my world understand the importance of these causes, and they genuinely try to bring change. Akshay Kumar, after the success of his films like Toilet Ek Prem Katha and Padman, once says how movies are an excellent medium for getting a message through to the audience.
When asking about if she agrees with actor Akshay on this, she says, Yes, films are a great medium to talking to the audience, but then it should not be a responsibility of the film.
Alone or the actors alone, everybody needs to be equally involving and aware of circumstances of the actions towards their planet.
