Actress-producer Dia Mirza says if given good scripts, she would love to back regional movies because for her the quality of a project matters more than the language it is made in.

Dia turned producer five years ago with romantic film “Love Breakups Zindagi” and though she is quite new as a filmmaker, she is open to venturing into different languages. “As a producer, my main intention is to tell good stories and if we find some stories that are truly fascinating and we honestly believe in the idea, then language or state or territories are no barriers,” Dia told PTI.

Meanwhile, the 34-year-old “Rehna Hai Tere Dil Mei” star is excited about her upcoming maiden Indo-Iranian project, which she has produced and also starred in. “Salaam Mumbai” features Iranian superstar Mohammad Reza Golzar opposite Dia. The actress said she is proud to have been a part of this film.

“It was fantastic being a part of this international project. Reza Golzar is already a superstar in Iran and is an absolutely enthralling individual to work with. “He is humble, grounded and so talented! I have learned a lot from him and the entire Iranian crew. Their passion about the art and craft of storytelling is absolutely amazing! It is a matter of great pride to be featured in a first ever Indo-Iranian film,” she added.
