Mumbai: Actress Dia Mirza says that her Indo-Iranian film “Salaam Mumbai!” opposite Iranian actor Mohammad Reza Golzar will hit the screens in October this year.
“My first international Iranian film will be releasing in October and I am really looking forward to that. It was an extraordinary experience, working with an industry that I have deeply admired and looked up to,” Dia said at the launch of her cover for “Health” magazine.
“The person starring with me in the film is Iran’s megastar and the kind of love that has been showering my way from Iran has been really extraordinary. It has been a wonderful ride,” she added.
Dia plays a medical student in the film, which has also been shot in Mumbai for a considerable time. The film is in three languages, Persian, English and Hindi and Golzar had stated that he was learning Hindi for the film.
Dia, who also owns the production house Born Free Entertainment with her husband and ‘Love Breakups Zindagi’ director Sahil Sangha, said: “I’m currently working on three films that we are producing.”
She also ventured into television earlier this year with the show “Ganga – The Soul of India”, exploring locations and cultures around the Hindu holy river.
Any plans for a second season? “Well, there has been a demand for it and it has been a beautiful narrative that has really engaged the audience and enriched people and motivated them.
“I would actually like to traverse civilizations that are influenced by different rivers. So why not Brahmaputra?”
Dia was last seen in the Bengali film “Paanch Adhyay”.
