Former beauty queen and Bollywood actress Diya Mirza may not exactly be a (late) Smita Patil or a Shabana Azmi, when it comes to acting, but is quite an able performer. Unfortunately, she did not get the kind of success in Bollywood that some of the other beauty pageant winners of her era achieved.
Nonetheless, Diya is quite a sport and is not at all sore about that. In fact, Diya is quite pragmatic and confesses that she prefers a small role in a prestigious project, rather than playing the lead actress in a z-grader !
As if she was destined to prove right, last Friday's Krazzy 4 has seen the audience reacting quite favourably to Diya's short but efficient act. And if that is not enough, May will once again see her in Sanjay Gupta's Alibaug (after Shootout At Lokhandwala and Dus Kahaniyaan) with the one and only Sanjay Dutt.
In keeping up her rule of working in prestigious banners, Diya will be seen in a very important role in UTV's Sujith Sircar directed November release Shoebite, sharing screen space with megastar Amitabh Bachchan.
So it appears that Diya has her kitty full with what she prefers!
