Mirza in one sentence: Dia is a successful Indian actress and a woman with many virtues.


There is nothing more beautiful than a woman or man who exudes positivity.

I have dreams about marriage and children…

Being a producer is taking charge of the entire process. You’re the catalyst in making things happen.

I am happy and I am in love in everything that I do.

I think I will never date an actor again.

What a man truly needs, is character.

There can only be lust at first sight.  

I’m content with what I have.

I didn’t allow anyone to take me under their wings.
