Actress Dia Mirza made her Bollywood debut in 2001 with 'Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein' and after that, there was no looking back. Dia might not have done too many films but has been enjoying her stint in the industry. 

The actress has immersed with the OTT platforms both as an actor and as a producer. 

Mirza recently gave a glimpse of what 2021 looked like, calling it a year filled with incredible joy, the actress gave us a sneak peek into her wedding day and motherhood. 

She had also mentioned a near-death experience. In a recent interaction with a news portal, the actress opened up about her collaboration with Anubhav Sinha, pandemic experience and a lot more. Excerpts:

How would you describe your 2021 in one word?

For me personally, motherhood.

You are collaborating with Anubhav Sinha once again for 'Bheed' after 'Thappad'. How was your experience working with him?

I deeply care for and respect Anubhav’s cinema. Having been directed by him 20 years ago in a music video, working with him on some of his earlier films to our collaboration on 'Thappad' and now 'Bheed', it’s been a long and interesting journey. 'Bheed' is an important film, and very hard to make. But Anubhav makes the experience so enjoyable, effortless and personal. I love the entire team he works with. It was so good to be back on a film set with him!

Your New Year post hinted at some experiences that left us really curious. We all know about your marriage and motherhood, but what happened with the near-death experience?

I had to go in for an appendectomy in the fifth month of my pregnancy. I was in and out of hospital subsequently because of an acute bacterial infection that could have led to sepsis while I was in my sixth month of pregnancy. My baby had to be delivered because my placenta had started to haemorrhage. It was a tough time and I’m grateful for my gynaecologist who saved our lives.

How different is it being a mother during the pandemic?

To bring a child into a world in crisis has a profound impact on all our choices. I hope that someday soon we won’t have to wear masks and our children can have normalcy in their lives. Our daughter is studying online and that is a struggle. Our son is too young to know the difference. But while we stay home, we cherish the time we have together and do all we can to make this time engaging, happy and safe for our children.

On the work front, Dia will next be seen in Anubhav Sinha's Bheed. The actress shared that she loves working with Anubhav and his team.
