Known for romantic films like Rehna Hai Tere Dil Mein, Bollywood actress Dia Mirza is all set to take a huge leap with a new horror web series.

The Rehna Hai Tere Dil Mein actress will be seen playing the title role in an episode titled The Good Wife in Shockers, a new webseries by Hotstar.

“As an actor it is exciting to be a part of different mediums of story telling. Short films as a format are exciting, because in a limited period of time a lot can be conveyed. Samaira’s (the character) story, in ‘The Good Wife’ could be anyone’s experience,” Dia said in a statement.

The episode deals with a supernatural presence in the character’s house. Dia, 34, says the experience for shooting it was “extraordinary”. “It is real and extraordinary. I enjoyed shooting for this in one night with Faruk Kabir who as a director is pushing the envelope of spookiness,” she added.
