Actress Dia Mirza was last seen playing Maanyataa Dutt in Rajkumar Hirani’s recent release Sanju. She was appreciated by the viewers and critics for her performance. The actress is currently on cloud nine.
Dia Mirza, who is the UN Goodwill Ambassador For Environment, recently had a baby rhino (born at the Ol Pejeta Conservancy) named after her.
Taking to her Facebook page, an elated Dia Mirza shared:
Readers may remember that in 2010, Dia had adopted and named two leopard cubs Ashoka and Nakshatra from the Lucknow Zoo after being requested by the zoo authorities to do so as the mother of the cubs was also named Dia.
Dia is known for lending her support to many environmental and social causes and has been recognized by the United Nations for her contribution to environment conservation along with global celebrities like Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Angelina Jolie, Katy Perry and Emma Watson.
