Dia Mirza Didn’t Turn Film Producer to Extend Her Innings as an Actor!

After getting featured in several television commercials and earning much fame in the modeling world she won the Miss Asia Pacific title in the year 2000. The next step after becoming a beauty queen Dia Mirza took was entering Bollywood. She debuted with the film 'Rehnaa Hai Tere Dil Mein' opposite actor R. Madhavan. Dia continued to do films along with pursuing her passion for writing. She has been an avid social worker for all these years as well. In the year 2011 the beautiful Bollywood actress turned producer with her first production 'Love Breakups Zindagi'. She produced this film under her banner Born Free Entertainment.

Now, Dia Mirza along with her beau and business partner Sahil Sangha is coming up with Born Free Entertainment's second production 'Bobby Jasoos'. While Dia had played the lead role in her first production, she will not be a part of her second film as far as acting is concerned. It is Vidya Balan who will play the lead role this time. As per a source, "Though Vidya Balan entered the film industry much after Dia Mirza, as an actor and producer they found some good camaraderie going for them during the making of 'Bobby Jasoos'. When it came to a much meaty female centric outing in 'Bobby Jasoos', Dia entrusted Vidya to step into the part."

Talking about why she did not play the lead role in her second production Dia Mirza said, "I was asked that why I didn't cast myself in the film. But then I didn't turn producer because I wanted to extend my innings as an actor. I have always been sure to cast only that person in the film who would do complete justice to the story, In case of 'Bobby Jasoos', Vidya Balan was always the best bet." Dia also proudly added, "When the film releases, I am sure every leading lady in the country would wish that she had done this film. There are certain stories that resonate emphatically with a person's own personal ambition. I know that 'Bobby Jasoos' is one such story. Moreover, Vidya has enacted the part with so much conviction that she has indeed turned out to be Bobby herself."

During the shooting of the film, Dia Mirza and Vidya Balan got together both professionally as well as personally. "Well, Vidya was always our first choice. This is a moment of great pride and joy for us; more so since Vidya is so selective about the films that she does. I think to have her in the film is nothing short of a dream come true," said a content Dia. It has been two years after 'Kahaani' in which Vidya had played a central protagonist. She is returning with such a role in her next 'Bobby Jasoos' which might be a must watch. Many are looking forward to what she has in store with 'Bobby Jasoos' which is pretty much tailor-made for her. This Dia Mirza production is slated to hit the theatres on 4th July this year!
