Producer-actress Dia Mirza calls Vidya Balan a 'powerhouse performer'. Dia, who is busy casting for three films being made under the banner Born Free Entertainment, says she would love to work with actress Vidya Balan.
"Vidya is someone who I would love to cast in the film. She is a dear friend with a great temperament. She is an easy person to be with and is a powerhouse performer," stated Dia. She also expressed about few other talented actresses that she'd like to cast in her films. "I would love to work with Huma Qureshi and Richa Chadda, they are very talented actors," she added.
Dia co-owns the production house along with her beau, businessman Sahil Sangha, and actor Zayed Khan. Talking about the status of her upcoming projects, Dia mentioned, "We are in the process of developing three films."
"We will start filming in October. We have invested a year-and-a-half in scripting. It is everything that we stand by. All the three movies will release in the middle of next year," she explained.
The 31-year-old actress says that there is a common thread between all the three stories. "They are all human interest stories. If I had to streamline the genre, I would say each one of them is coming-of-age stories. The milieu of the characters is different. I am excited about the quality of writing. Each writer was given a-year-and-a-half. It has been an exciting and exasperating process," she said.
"A lot of us are in a hurry to just make a film. I was clear that whatever I do, it should take care of everything. The priority was story. I wanted to tell unique stories," she said. The actress also added that she is not keen on acting in her films. "I will not take up any role if the film does not need me," she said.
