Former beauty queen-turned-Bollywood actress, Dia Mirza, in a recent interview, talked about how her career has been riddled with heartaches.
The actress, who was off to a thunderous start with her blockbuster ehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein opposite R. Mahadevan in 2001, talked about how frustrating it has been to ‘beg’ and ‘wait’ for stories to find producers and audience.
“Heartache when your stories don’t find audiences, heartache when your stories don’t find producers, heartache when you are just waiting endlessly for someone to send work your way. It is really tough. Every time you think, ‘Ok this film! Because everyone has liked it, loved my part and that is going to drive more work my way’ and then you find yourself chipping away again at that block of stone, begging, waiting. It is an endless wait, I have made peace with that,” Dia Mirza told Indian Express.
The actress also spoke about how actors are always on the lookout for good parts and opportunities.
“As actors, we are so starved for good parts, opportunities, that we wait a lot. Wait for stories that resonate with us. I have always perceived myself as a working artiste, which means you want to be employed as much as possible. But after a certain stage in your life and career, you don’t want to be just an employed artiste, you want to be someone who is using their craft to help make a difference,” she further added.
Dia Mirza will soon be seen in Anubhav Sinha's Bheed alongside Rajkummar Rao, Bhumi Pednekar, Pankaj Kapur and Ashutosh Rana. The movie is expected to hit theatres on March 24, 2023.
