The viewers of bollywood films wish happy birthday to serene beauty Diya Mirza on 9th December, 2011. Although she had acted in more than 30 films, she did not succeed in reaching the stardom of toppers in bollywood like Kareena Kapoor, Vidya Balan, Katrina Kaif. It is an established fact that ultramodern roles never suited Diya Mirza. She had a calm, quiet, docile image and whenever roles relating to that image were given she had done great jobs.
But whenever ultramodern roles were offered to her she could not adapt herself in the respective role. She was sublime opposite Salman Khan in the film Tumko Bhula Na Payenge. The film showed the loss of memory on the part of Salman Khan.
Salman Khan was a shooter and along with his co-shooter was appointed by the home minister to shoot his rival. But after some time bullets were fired at Salman Khan and he was found in a pond in a village. The father of Arbaaz Khan found Salman Khan and told him that he was his son.
Diya Mirza stayed in the same village and was the daughter of the friend of Salman Khan’s father. She used to visit Salman Khan and persuade him to believe that nothing serious had happened to him. Salman was inclined to know the cause of the loss of his memory. Neither Diya Mirza, nor Rajpal Yadav, told him the truth.
The romantic performance of Salman Khan and Diya Mirza was well appreciated by the viewers. Both of them gave able lips in the songs “yeh bekhudi diwanagi” and “are are yeh kya hua re” sung by Sonu Nigam and others. The other part of the film was related to Salman Khan taking revenge against his rival and death of Sushmita Sen in the struggle.
Her docile image was used by Vidhu Vinod Chopra in the film Parineeta. Her performance was well appreciated along with Vidya Balan. Even her performance in the films Deewanapan and Tumsa Nahi Dekha also had feminine appeal.
Even her performance in the film Lage Raho Munnabhai in the role of the daughter of Boman Irani had docile image. She was very obedient daughter of her father but the moment she knew that her horoscope was redesigned not to let his inlaws including Kulbhushan Kharwanda know that she was manglik, she told them the truth after speaking with Sanjay Dutt (Munna Bhai). She initially wanted to commit suicide but later changed her decision after being briefed by Munna Bhai.
Even her performance in Shootout at Lokhandwala had the feminine. But her performance in the film Cash broke the image, which was not liked by the audience. Her lips in an ultramodern fashion in the song “hey chori zara nachke dikha” along with Esha Deol and Shamita Shetty was not impressive at all.
Diya Mirza has a sweet face and loving image, so should concentrate on those roles which show her feminine docile image, rather than aggressive roles of egoists which can spoil her career. The viewers are looking forward to better performances from Diya Mirza in future.
