Terrifying to go on a film set after two years: Dia Mirza
Dia Mirza will be seen playing the role of Sanjay Dutt’s wife Maanayata, in Rajkumar Hirani’s upcoming biopic on the Munnabhai MBBS actor. The Bollywood actor says that going on a film set after a gap of two years was “terrifying”. But the film’s cast made her feel at home, and she feels she managed to do “okay”. “I had a great time filming (the biopic). It was terrifying as well because I actually got on to a film set after a gap of two years. Morning of my first day, I was terrified, but given the nature of the crew and the kind of people I was working with, and the sense of home that I felt, I did okay,” the Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein actor says. The actor was last seen in Salaam Mumbai (2016). Dia also ventured into production with the film Bobby Jasoos (2014), where she did a cameo as herself. Ranbir Kapoor is playing Sanjay Dutt in the biopic, which will open up facets of the actor’s personal as well as public life, on the big screen. The film also stars Sonam Kapoor, Anushka Sharma, Paresh Rawal, Manisha Koirala, Karishma Tanna, Vicky Kaushal and Jim Sarbh. “It is with my favourite Indian film director. I have worked with him before (with Lage Raho Munna Bhai). I get to work with one of the finest artists of my generation, Ranbir Kapoor. I am really excited about the film and I can’t wait for the audiences to watch it,” she added. “The film’s release is a good three months away, and it’s too early to comment,” she says, refusing to divulge any more information on the narrative of the film.
