Dia Mirza's last big screen outing was a Bengali film in 2012 and the actress, who has turned movie producer, says acting has taken a backseat as she is enjoying the process of filmmaking.
The 32-year-old actress co-owns Born Free Entertainment with her
husband Sahil Sangha and they have produced films like 'Love
Breakups Zindagi' and 'Bobby Jasoos'.
Dia says there have been several acting offers but she has not
taken up any project as she is yet to make her mind about returning
"There have been offers but nothing is decided right now. I am
really enjoying being part of the filmmaking process for now. I
would definitely want to come in front of the camera and do a film.
I enjoyed that phase of my career. May be next year I will be able
to finally take a call on the film which I will star in," Dia
The former beauty queen, who has acted in films like 'Rehna
Hai Tere Dil Mein', 'Lage Raho Munna Bhai' and
'Honeymoon Travels Pvt Ltd', has not not ruled out
starring in a film made by her production company.
"I never founded the production house with the aim to create
movies for me. But having said that, I feel there is nothing wrong
with it. A lot of people here and in the west do it. I will also do
it if a great script comes my way. But my focus is to build our
production house at the moment."
Dia, who got married last month to Sangha, said they are
currently busy working on two film scripts.
The actress said that like their last film 'Bobby
Jasoos', starring Vidya Balan, which was about a Hyderabadi
woman aspiring to become a detective despite facing a series of
obstacles, their upcoming projects will also have a social
"As producers we are leaving no stones unturned. We are working
very hard. The good news is that there are two very good scripts
that we are developing and very soon we will be able to make an
announcement regarding it. "We as a production company aim to make
films which are socially relevant. Like we made a 'Bobby' about a
girl belonging to a minority community which was not done in
Bollywood. Our endeavour is to give a message without sounding
preachy," the actress said.
