Bollywood actress Dia Mirza has said that she chose to be a "part-time actor" because that is the "only way" she could safeguard her kids' future and present. In an interview with PTI, Mirza said that she feels a sense of responsibility to make the world a better place for her children.
Dia Mirza calls herself “part-time” actor; says, “My time and energy is spent on…”
"I was recently telling the head of UNEP in India that I act part-time. Most of my time and energy is spent on conservation efforts and environmental action in the country," Mirza said.
"I do it because I feel responsible, I feel a sense of urgency. I feel that the only way I can safeguard my children's present and future is if I contribute to solutions that make a difference," she added.
Having said that, it is worth mentioning here that Mirza is a Goodwill Ambassador of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and has been working on environmental issues for many years. Last week, she delivered a keynote speech at a three-day nature and wildlife festival in Bengaluru. She spoke on sustainable living during her speech.
During her speech, Dia asserted that cinema can have far-reaching effects in conservation efforts. She cited the example of the Oscar-winning documentary short The Elephant Whisperers. She also recalled the first film she directed, Kids for Tiger, which is available on YouTube. The film is about children discussing how the tiger is a metaphor for all of nature.
