Dia Mirza recently took a trip down memory lane remembering her experiences on the set of Parineeta. With over 15 years passed since the release of her film back in 2005, Mirza referred to it as a life changing opportunity.
She stated, “Even back then, I was so desperate to be part of something meaningful and work with a team I could learn from. When Vidhu Vinod Chopra gave me the opportunity to be part of Parineeta, I was so grateful. It was such a wonderful experience. It was the first time that I saw such a great amount of method in the madness.”
Not only did it launch her career, but also provided her the opportunity to make “life-long friends”. She was quoted saying, “I remember the entire process of prepping for the film and actively promoting the film with Sanjay (Dutt) sir and Saif (Ali Khan) as Vidya was kept unrevealed until the release of the film.”
She concluded by saying, “Vidya and I laugh about it that we’ve some connection from another lifetime. We’ve been such integral parts of each other’s lives and journeys. There are very special bonds and memories attached to Parineeta.”
