Open to finite TV series, says Dia Mirza

New Delhi, June 20 (IANS) Actress-producer Dia Mirza, who made her TV debut with non-fiction show “Ganga – The Soul of India” this year, says it is “impossible” for her to take out time for long fiction shows, but is willing to explore the television’s fiction genre through a finite series.


The actress confronted her fears with “Ganga – The Soul of India”, where she is seen showcasing her adventurous spirit.

So what about walking into small screen’s fiction space?

Dia, who became the brand ambassador of the recently launched sunscreen brand Suncros, asserted that she is “always open to exploring different mediums and narratives”.

“As an artiste and actor, I am always open to exploring different mediums and narratives. I have not taken on fiction work for TV yet because I have been offered shows that require over 150 to 300 days of a fulltime commitment of time,” Dia told IANS.

She added: “To accommodate such time is impossible in my case as I have many other commitments to juggle through the year. But I am open to doing finite series that can be shot and completed like ‘Ganga – The Soul Of India’ was done in one schedule of 47 days.”

Talking about her association with the cosmetic brand Suncros, Dia said: “It is wonderful to have the opportunity to promote a brand that has earned merit and is high on an ethic list as they do not animal test.”
