Bollywood actors may be infamous for keeping their marriage plans under the wrap, but actor-turned-producer Dia Mirza is completely candid about her relationship with Sahil Sangha, business partner and director of her first production venture. “Yes, we are dating, and I will marry him soon…may be next year itself!” says the actor.
The 29-year-old, who turned producer, joining hands with actor Zayed Khan and Sahil, to form Born Free Entertainment Pvt Ltd, plays the lead in her maiden production venture, Love Breakups Zindagi that releases on October 7.
The romantic comedy that also stars Zayed, has been directed by beau Sahil, and the actor can't hide her excitement talking about him.
“Sahil is not just a great director but a wonderful human being too. What I like best about him is his honesty and sincerity in whatever he does. He has brought magic into the film,” said Diya in an interview to HT City on the sidelines of an event in Tokyo, Japan, where she was recently invited by the Japan National Tourism Organisation and Japan Airlines to promote tourism between Japan and India.
Dia and Sahil’s moms happen to be good friends but it was Sahil’s wonderful script that had floored the actor.
“We just loved his script and both Zayed and I didn’t want to let it go. It was like…straight from the heart and in Born Free we intent to make movies that we really believe in,” said the actor, adding, “I believe true creativity can happen in an environment of freedom, and that’s why we zeroed on the name ‘Born Free’ too. In fact, during the shoot, Zayed and I sometimes fought like crazy but it was all for the sake of good cinema.”
And what about Shah Rukh’s reported cameo in the movie?
“The film will have a lot of surprises, so just wait and watch,” the actor signed off, refusing to divulge more.
