EXCLUSIVE: Dia Mirza opens up about childhood; “I lost two fathers within one lifetime, it was very hard” : Bollywood News


Dia Mirza turned environment activist, has always been rather vociferous about environmental and climactic change. In fact, Dia has been drawing attention to issues that have cropped up due to negligence of the environment. But away from all that, just recently Dia became a proud mother, and it seems like her joy has been growing each single day. Recently in an exclusive Bollywood Hungama interview, Dia opened up about her past, and shared what her childhood was like. In a candid conversation the actress and activist narrated what her late biological father Frank Hendrich, and her step-father Ahmed Mirza were like and the relation she shared with them.

When asked about her childhood memories, Dia started off with her biological father and narrated what she thought of him. “It was interesting; I can write a book about it. I have spoken about this before, I come from mixed lineage, my father was German and my mother is Bengali; my father was a very interesting man, someone who I really look up to and admire. Unfortunately, I lost him when I was only nine years old, but I have newspaper clippings that talk about his workshops that he conducted with teachers, that talk about his art… the paintings that he made or the sculptures that he made. I know people who still have pieces of his furniture. In fact, just recently someone reached out saying that they had a dining table set which he made, and offered to let me have it. So people are actually sending back certain pieces of his crat to me. He was a dynamic person, very well read. He travelled by road from Germany to India twice conducting workshops in the countries that he visited along the way through Max Mueller Bhavan, he was a deep sea diver, a rally driver, a painter, a photographer… some of my most beautiful childhood pictures are all shot by him. But I lost him when I was very young, my parents were separated when he died, and it took me some time to not just accept that he was no more but is like closure nahi mila, because I didn’t see him, I didn’t see his body, I didn’t fully understand that he was gone and I would never see him again.”

But not being one to be pulled down, Dia quickly moved on to talk about her step-father Ahmed Mirza and why she adopted his surname. “I loved my step farther, he was a remarkable man a lot of what I have learned in life especially the values that have held me in good stead and this is something I can vouch for, are all values that he gave me. We had a very very beautiful relationship, that started off as friendship and then I think as I grew older and I recognized that I had spent more years of my life with him and him as a parent, he just became more and more my father, and that’s why I took on his surname when I joined the Miss India pageant. It was amazing how he never tried to take my father’s place but made his own place in my heart. Unfortunately, I lost him as well, when I was 23, and that was a huge, huge, huge loss because I think whatever said and done, the security blanket that a father figure gives you in life, nobody else can. And when you lose a father that young, and I had lost two fathers within one lifetime it was very hard.”

Back on the work front, Dia Mirza who recently became a mother had been on sabbatical from the world of films. Currently focussing on enjoying her role as a mother and doting on her son, Dia seems to be in no hurry to return to the big screen.
