Diya Mirza has turned bad

Known for her Ms Goody Image Diya Mirza is enjoying being bad.

In Suparn Verma's flick Acid Factory she is playing a girl who is locked up in a factory with four men with apparently no way out. There she’s being made to do the impossible stunts. Actress Diya Mirza is the only woman in the entire script. "What I enjoy is being one of the boys. I'm doing everything that the boys are being made to do. And that includes all the stunts.

After playing dainty utterly feminine roles I'm enjoying being put on a harness dangling from ropes, jumping from heights, kicking and punching. In spite of my dainty image I've always been a tomboy. "

What Diya enjoys more is being mean.”My character is bad through and through. No apologies. No justification. She just enjoys being bad.

I like bringing that dark side of me out on screen because there's way I can tap into it in real life. I like the surprise element in my role in Acid Factory. I remember seeing a film with Julia Roberts where she was a schoolteacher by day and quite naughty in the night."

She has just finished shooting for shoe bite.” In Shoe bite most of my vital scenes are with Mr. Bachchan. And believe me it was like going to acting school. He taught me one thing I'll never forget. 'To be a good actor you've to be a good listener.' I'm going to follow that mantra, “says Diya.

"It was hard for me to come out and play the aggressive bad girl in Acid Factory or be part of the goofy comedy in Kunal Vijaykar's Fruit & Nut. I'm basically quiet and shy. I like to read and write."
