Dia Mirza shares issues she faced while shooting for ‘Kaafir’

Actor Dia Mirza along with an array of stars attended the special screening of her web series ‘Kaafir’ on Friday. Mirza, who is playing the role of a Pakistani woman, is making her digital debut with the series. After impressing the fans with her stellar performance in films, the actor is all set to enthrall the fans with her magical performance once again. The actor spoke about the hurdles and challenges she faced while shooting for the series. “I was really excited about the new project and more than that I was happy that the series was initially to be filmed in Kashmir. But unfortunately due to the ‘Pulwama problems’ we just couldn’t shoot there,” she said. “We were denied shooting permission in Kashmir. Then we had to begin shooting in Himachal which is also known as mini Kashmir and which is near the Tibet border. So we shot in Sangla and Kalpa villages,” she added. The story, written by Bhavani Iyer, breaks the stereotypes and mentality of the people regarding cast and religion. The actor revealed she was also questioned on playing the character of a Pakistani woman. “The storyline of the web series addresses the prejudices that people hold. When people come to me and asks if I fear playing the character of a Pakistani woman amid tensions between our neighbouring country, I would say that the series is something which will hammer the mentality of the people against such preconceived notions.” Apart from Dia, the series streaming on Zee5, also stars Mohit Raina. The series is directed by Sonam Nair.
