Dia Mirza, 30, who was in the Capital recently, declines rumours that she’s taking the nuptial plunge with boyfriend Sahil Sangha later this year.
“Sahil and I are not getting married anytime soon. Nothing much has been discussed about it between us yet, and we will talk about it mutually and then decide,” she says.
There’s also a lot of talk about the cheetah cubs she recently adopted. “I adopted these cubs when I got a call from the zoo saying that they had a cheetah from Mirzapur in Uttar Pradesh, and so decided to call her Dia Mirza. The cheetah had given birth to two baby cheetahs, and I was asked if I would like to adopt them. I said why not!” The cubs are not living with her, but she is “funding their care.”
On being asked about her upcoming film, she says, “It’s a Bangla film due to release during Durga Puja. This project very close to my heart as my mother-tongue is Bengali. Bengali works have gained recognition internationally. It is the intellect, the culture, the intelligence and the love for the craft that I absolutely love,” says Mirza, who was here to launch a new range of Body Shop products.
Sahil and I have not discussed marriage in detail so far
