Dia Mirza expresses desire to get recognized more as an artist
In a recent interview with Puja Talwar, Dia Mirza opened up about how she has become a part-time actor while stating that she deserves more recognition as an artist in the film industry. The actress said, "When you are a full time activist, then you end up being a part time actor. But having said that, the truth is that nothing gives me more joy than being a part of storytelling that can affect change. And I’m so grateful for the opportunities that have been coming along."
Dia further added, "So the activist in me is even satisfied with the stories that I managed to be a part of. I don’t know whether the industry really recognises the fact that I care deeply about being an artiste."
In the same interview, Mirza said that she feels she has so much to give through her life experiences, the kind of extraordinary human stories that she gets to "witness and appreciate and empathize and understand." According to Dia, all of these contribute to the actor that she is. "And I’m always raring to go and I have so much to offer. I just wish more people would cast me, quite frankly," said Dia.
