I had never believed in competition; for me it was just like giving my best: Dia Mirza
Actress-Dia Mirza came into discussion with ‘Miss India Pageant’ in the year 2000, but she says she never believed in the competition.
Recalling the days of her achievement, Dia said, "Even today when I look back twenty years, everything seems very unrealistic. When this happened, I was very young."
She adds, "The year 2000 marked a new era. It brought with it a sense of hope, promise and enthusiasm."
Interestingly, Dia never thought of winning a beauty contest.
Dia was the second runner-up in ‘Miss India 2000’ and later also won the title of ‘Miss Asia Pacific’.
