Dia Mirza: Receiving lot of love from people of Iran

Actress Dia Mirza, who will soon be seen in an Indo-Iranian film titled “Salaam Mumbai!” directed by Ghorban Mohammadpour, says that she has been receiving a lot of love from the people of Iran.

“It is the first time that India and Iran together have made a film. I feel very fortunate because the person with whom I’m working is the biggest superstar (Mohammad Reza Golzar) in Iran. People love him tremendously and hence Iranian people are also showering love on me via my social networking sites,” said Dia.

The actress says that as an artist, it is a wonderful opportunity for her to work on projects like this.

“This opportunity will certainly help in reaching the maximum number of people and in return we get their love,” said Dia at the screening of the film, “Taj Mahal”, here.

Dia now joins actresses like Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone, who have done the country proud by signing popular international films. While Priyanka will be seen in the film “Baywatch” and also is doing her television show “Quantico”, Deepika has signed “XXX-The Return of Xander Cage”.

“This is an interesting phase for films, there have been numerous international collaborations happening. Our Indian artists are getting numerous opportunities on the international level to showcase their performance. Even editors, cinematographers and directors are also working on international films.”
