In an interview with Hindustan Times, Dia Mirza talked about how privileged she is and expressed her gratitude for the opportunities that she gets in life. Talking about the same, the 41-year-old actress revealed that the films allow her to fulfil the purpose of her life and make it worth it to be away from her children, Avyaan and Samaira.
She said:“I feel really privileged and grateful to be a part of films that follow my purpose. It helps me do something that actually makes a difference. It strikes some really important conversations and hopefully brings change. And, I always believe that storytelling through cinema is a powerful instrument for positive social change. Good, powerful, and meaningful stories, only make it worth it to be away from my children. So that they can watch it someday and recognise its real value of it.”
Vaibhav and I have a full spectrum at home. We have an infant and a teenager, and every emotion is there–the hormones of a teenager and the fascination of an infant discovering the world. It’s really interesting to see how bonded these two are, and how much they love each other. How their eyes and heart lit up in each other’s presence.”
She said, “But, every day is not all laugh. It’s hard work and super challenging. But it’s such a great thing to see their bond, it’s just the best thing in the world.”
Dia parted ways with her ex-husband Sahil Sangha in 2019. The actor tied the knot with Vaibhav Rekhi in February 2021 in a private ceremony and the couple announced their pregnancy in April 2021. Samaira is Vaibhav’s daughter from his first marriage.
On the work front, Dia will next be seen in Anurag Kashyap’s Bheed and Tarun Dudeja’s Dhak Dhak. The actor said, “Good, powerful, and meaningful stories, only make it worth it for being away from my children. So that they can watch it someday and recognise its real value of it.”
