'Paanch Adhyay' for mom: Dia Mirza
"It is my first Bengali and my first regional film ever. I dedicate this to my mother, who is a Bengali. She is turning 60 this year and it was a very special moment for me when she saw the movie and said 'this is the best birthday gift you could have ever given me'," Dia said.
She was here at a press conference of the film after it was screened on Tuesday at the ongoing 14th Mumbai Film Festival.
‘Paanch Adhyay’ is film critic-turned-director Pratim Das Gupta's first film. It is the story of love found and lost in the lives of a contemporary Indian couple, told in moments of past and present.
Talking about her role in the film the 30-year-old actress said: "My character Ishita is not serious but is a very mature woman. Something which I have not played earlier. It is diametrically opposite to the kind of roles I have played till now."
The cast of the film includes actors Priyanshu Chatterjee, Soumitra Chatterjee and Sampurna Lahiri.
