Dia Mirza was terrified to go on a film set. Here’s why…

Dia Mirza, who was last seen in ‘Salaam Mumbai’ (2016) was off the screens for two years thereafter. And now the actress is set to return to the big screen with the much anticipated biopic on the life of Sanjay Dutt. She will be seen playing the role of the actor’s wife Maanayata Dutt. Recently, Dia recalled the experience of going on the sets of the film a gap of two years which was terrifying for her.

While talking about it, the actress said in a statement, “I had a great time filming it (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.” (Also Read: Sanjay Dutt biopic to have an addition to the cast with Tabu?)

The actress is naturally excited about the film, but refrained from sharing any information about the narrative of the project.

“It is with my favourite Indian film director (Rajkumar Hirani). I have worked with him before (in ‘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,” added the actress.

Further, when she was asked how the film will bring Sanjay’s life alive on the silver screen, she said, “I can’t answer this question, because the film’s release is a good three months away and it’s too early to comment or give any more details at this time.”

Talking about the film, apart from Ranbir, it features Paresh Rawal as late Sunil Dutt and Manisha Koirala as late actress Nargis.

Apart from them, there are also Sonam Kapoor, Vicky Kaushal and Anushka Sharma (in a cameo appearance) playing pivotal parts in it. The film is slated to hit the screens on March 30, 2018.
