Dia Mirza on being cheated in school

In 2015, Dia Mirza appeared in an episode of Doordarshan's Koshish Se Kaamyaabi Tak. In the show, Dia revealed to Kiran Juneja that she was once fooled by her crush in school. She said in Hindi, “I had a senior in my senior school who was two years older than me. I had a huge crush on him but neither did I tell him or anyone else. Pata nahi kaise use pata chal gaya hoga ki I like him (I don't know how he got to know that I liked him). Every day the phone at our house would ring and I used to run to pick it up. He used to call and play I Just Called To Say I Love You.”

“I used to get so happy after listening to the song and thought he loved me too. But he never spoke about it in school. Hum dur dur se dekh kar muskurate they and bade khush hote they (we used to look at each other and smile in school) until I found out he was doing the same thing to my best friend,” Dia added. Kiran asked her, “Oh my God! Did it break your heart?” Dia replied, “No. I went straight to the principal's office and both of us complained about him.”
