2. Kaafir star Dia Mirza
In an exclusive interview, Dia Mirza revealed the most powerful gift she has received from her mother is perspective.“It’s very easy, she has always told me, to get consumed and contained by our immediate lives. It’s very important to remember that you are affected by infinity. She gifted me the moon one birthday, as an example. I was like, ‘But it’s not mine.’ My mother replied, ‘Who said? It’s yours from today. Every time you look at it, know that it’s yours.’ That’s context, that’s perspective,” said Dia.
She further added, “Then, of course, the perspective that before you are your name, before you are your religion, before you are your geographical address, before you are your nationality, you are first the citizen of the planet. That your identity cannot be contained or limited by your surname or your residential address, everything needs to perpetuate from the understanding that this planet is your home and everything starts from there. I think that’s the most powerful gift she has ever given me.”
For those unaware, Dia is set to make her digital debut with Kaafir, an upcoming ZEE5 original series, alongside Mohit Raina.
