“I think art has always found a way to transcend fear and prejudice and helped reunite our hearts and emotions seamlessly. We cannot allow fear to take away from ourselves and our communities. ‘Kaafir’ is more than the touching stories it tells. It’s a constant reminder that the universe is limitless and meant for everyone,” Dia said.

“Kaafir” was praised for its moving storyline written by Bhavani Iyer, empathetic direction by Sonam Nair, and the impressive performance delivered by Dia, alongside her co-actors Mohit Raina and Dishita Jain.

Dia played the part of Kainaaz Akhtar, an imprisoned Pakistani woman.

“Kainaaz was a tough part to get into the skin of because she belongs to a world where her life experiences are so removed from my life experiences. I consider myself an empowered, independent woman whereas Kainaaz is spirited but comes from such a background of conflict and disempowerment that it was so important for me to understand the mindscape and the landscape of her journey,” Dia said.
