She has been in Bollywood for almost a decade and has done over 30 films but Dia Mirza says she is yet to do a movie that proves her as an actress.

The 29-year-old, who started her career with Rehna Hai Tere Dil Mein opposite Madhavan, says she hasn't had success as an actress but doesn't regret the choices she made.

"I have hardly been part of the cinema that could get me my due in Bollywood. I haven't done any film that proves me as an actress. Although, I am happy to have been part of all the films I have done because they have taught me a lot," Dia said.

"Luck plays an important role. I have worked with some filmmakers who are very honest and had good stories to tell but unfortunately they didn't click at the box office," she added.

The actress who later starred in Dus, Cash and Dum, says there was a time when it got frustrating sitting at home and not getting any calls for new projects.

"It gets frustrating when your film flops and you are not getting any calls for work and just sitting at home. I have been through that phase and it breaks your heart. There comes a point where you don't know what to do next and that's the reason I always kept my options open and wanted to learn everything," she concluded.
