Dia Mirza’s tuneful past…


dia Mirza

Being the brand ambassador of Genesis Foundation, Dia Mirza recently attended one of their events where she went on to sing REHNA HAI TERE DIL MEIN’s popular track ‘Zara zara…’. Dia Mirza singing this well-loved song from her hit with R. Madhavan was a lovely throwback to those times and sent many down memory lane. Pity there were such few high-points in the career of this lovely actress…

Not that the actor-producer has been sitting home twiddling her thumbs. She just made her television debut with ‘Ganga – The Soul of India’, on Living Foodz. The show sees her following the Ganga from Gomukh to the Bay of Bengal. More recently, the actress, who is also an activist and conservationist, had been named brand ambassador for the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan’s latest offshoot, the Swachh Saathi program, under which over 2000 volunteers will be enrolled to ensure students in 10,000 schools across the country take the initiative forward. An official letter of appointment issued by the Ministry of Urban Development.

The Swachh Bharat Mission Director, Praveen Prakash, had averred, “Dia is a youth icon and has been an active campaigner for Swachh Bharat. We felt that she would be the best person to help us reach out to more youngsters. Our aim is to make it a viral youth-led movement.”

With Dia putting her passion and power behind the movement, the initiative is bound to receive a boost, we think.
