Dia wants to back entertaining yet meaningful cinema

New Delhi, Dec 16 (IANS) Actress-producer Dia Mirza says she wants to support entertaining, but meaningful cinema as a producer.

Asked what kind of films she wants to back as a producer, Dia told IANS through an email from Mumbai: “Films that are entertaining yet not vacant.”

Dia, who will be attending the ET Smart Green Summit here on Friday, is not so active as an actress anymore. But she says she will be back on the silver screen soon.

“We have a few scripts that are nearing completion and if all goes well, you could see me on the big screen sometime soon. If you want to see me even sooner, then all you have to do is fly to Iran where my movie ‘Salaam Mumbai’ has just released and by the grace of God, is doing remarkably well,” she said.

At the summit, she will engage in a conversation on Optimising Nature with Modern Urban Living.

The former beauty queen is associated with several social causes, and genuinely believes “each one of us can make a difference”.

“I have been blessed with the access and opportunity to reach out to a wider cross section of society and I must not take that for granted. There are real heroes scattered all around the globe who’s hearts beat for nature and causes that impact human life.

“All those unsung heroes and their efforts inspire me on a daily basis because they are the finest examples of citizens who are participating and playing an active role to shape our world and save it,” Dia said.
