The desire to seek financial independence set this 18 year old from Hyderabad on a path where she ultimately found her dream – cinema.
Born to an architect and an interior designer, Dia Mirza, started her career as a marketing executive, and she modeled part time. But it was winning the Miss Asia-Pacific crown in 2000, that set stage for a debut in films for Dia and she has not looked back since.
With a successful career as an actor, Dia is now ready to add another dimension to her creative aspirations by turning producer. She has joined hands with writer/director Sahil Sangha to form Born Free.
Beyond films, Dia is actively involved with the conservation of the environment. She is on the board of the Coca-Cola’s rural development initiative – ‘Anandana’ and she’s actively involved with several NGO’s to raise awareness for different causes.
Dia is a voracious reader, with a knack for languages and a flair for writing.
