Unfair to target film involving mostly Indians, says Dia

Mumbai: Actress-producer Dia Mirza says that it is unfair to a target a film like “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil” that involves 99 per cent Indian crew members.

“The day central government announces a financial isolation of Pakistan where they say all trades and communications will be seized, as a part of the film industry… I am pretty certain that we will maintain that 100 per cent,” said Dia, who attended Good Homes For Art event organised by Good Homes Magazine, here.

“But to target a film, where 99 per cent Indian crew members are involved and their livelihood depends on the project, it’s unfair,” she said when asked about the release troubles faced by the makers of “Ae Dil Hai Mushkil”. It is under threat from the Maharashtra Navnirman Sena for featuring Pakistani actor Fawad Khan.

Speaking about the art event, the actress said: “Art is a form of expression of one’s imagination and without imagination life would be dull. Art compels society to respond.”

“I’ve been brought up in an environment where my dad and my mom were artistes. So for me it comes naturally, be it as a form of painting, music, dance or writing. As a filmmaker or film producer, I get to spend some quality time with lots of artistes. However, in my own time I love to do painting,” said Dia.
