Dia's role of Maanayata has got appreciation from both the viewers and the critics. We got in touch with Dia to know her reaction on Sanju's success. She was elated and her excitement was quite evident through her voice.
Dia said, "I am overwhelmed with gratitude and I can't even begin to tell you how much it means to be a part of this wonderful film and to work with extraordinary talent and get recognition. I am really happy with the film."
"The most precious thing about the film is that it gives you an insight to the intimacy of moments that the public has not able to see. It gives you a better sense of relationship. When we see people and their circumstances, we don't really empathize the way we should until we see them in the context through this film," she added.
Further into the conversation, we asked about Maanayata Dutt's reaction. On this, she said, "Maanayata was completely overcome with emotions. For Sanju sir and his family, it was about reliving the whole journey."
Talking about working with Rajkumar Hirani, she stated, "You talk to any actor or any technician who works with Rajkumar Hirani, they will universally echo one sentiment which is that he is such an extraordinary human being. He evokes a kind of a trust that only a few people can do in people. He just worked on helping us do better and better. Whether it was Ranbir or Vicky, we all were there because we all loved the filmmaker."
"I feel liberated now to be back and all those years of being terrified where things will go is justified through this film and I hope this film opens to many more opportunities," she ended on this note and signed off.
Sanju is unstoppable at the box office. The film stars Ranbir Kapoor as Sanjay Dutt and Vicky Kaushal as Sanju's best friend Paresh Ghelani.
