It has been a while since we saw actress-producer Dia Mirza in movies, and she is going to be back with the most awaited film of the year. Dia, who will play the role of Sanjay Dutt’s wife Maanayata Dutt in the actor’s biopic, reveals how wonderful it is to be part of the venture and that she is also excited to work with filmmaker Rajkumar Hirani.
“I am working on Sanjay Dutt’s biopic right now, and I am really excited about it. It’s wonderful film to be part of, and to be directed by my favourite filmmaker,” Dia said at Amazon India Fashion Week (AIFW) Autumn/ Winter 2017. (Also Read: Confirmed!

When asked if playing a real life character is easy or difficult, she said, “I think for an actor, the work is only as difficult as a written material. With the team so sound and with such a wonderful environment out there, you feel nothing but to put your best foot forward. I would like to believe that whether it is playing a real-life character or fictional character, the idea is to understand what you are doing and the purpose of your presence should matter.”
Dia has shared screen space with Sanjay Dutt in films like ‘Parineeta’ and ‘Lage Raho Munna Bhai’.
While Ranbir Kapoor plays the protagonist in the film, Paresh Rawal is playing the role of Sunil Dutt. Sonam Kapoor and Anushka Sharma too play pivotal parts in the movie.
Well, we sure would love to see Dia on big screens after a long hiatus.
