Having worked in films like Sanju, Dum, Parineeta and Salaam Mumbai, actress Dia Mirza says her mantra in life has been to work with people she loves and respects.
After the success of Sanju, what is she looking forward to on the film front?

“I have a very simple guiding rule in my life I only do what I love and I only work with people I respect and love. So whenever an opportunity comes by for me that builds a sense of respect and trust and I’d enjoy being a part of it, I will definitely do it,” Dia told. The 36-year-old actress left a mark with her film debut in 2001 with Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein and was later seen in commercial hits like Lage Raho Munna Bhai and Shootout At Lokhandwala.

However, she feels happy to be called the Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein girl. The film is a romantic drama and has been loved for camaraderie between Dia and R Madhavan.
“For every actor, it’s such an incredible gift to have that one film they can relate to you with. It is such a joy and privilege to be called the Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein girl... To have people come up to me and ask when the sequel will be made... I think it’s the most wonderful thing and I am very lucky.”

The former beauty queen, who is also the UN Environment’s goodwill ambassador for India, says she supports eco-friendly fashion and would like to do her own clothing one day.
