Dia MirzaDia Mirza tones up for an action role

For the first time Dia Mirza will be seen brandishing guns and shooting down baddies on the big screen.

The cute and delicate-looking Dia is all charged up to show her spunky side in Sanjay Gupta's production Acid Factory to be directed by Suparn Verma (who previously made Ek Khiladi Ek Haseena ).




Interestingly, Dia is the only female in the film's predominantly male cast ensemble comprising Fardeen Khan , Irrfan Khan , Manoj Bajpai , Dino Morea , Aftab Shivdasani and Danny Denzongpa .

The role was first offered to Bipasha Basu who expressed interest but did not find much substance in her character. She had asked for some changes in the script. Moreover, Suparn wanted to shoot the film at a time when Bipasha had already committed her dates for Freeze with Neil Nitin Mukesh .

So Bipasha was consequently dropped from the project and Dia Mirza (who is a good friend of Gupta) was roped in as replacement.

Since it is an action role, Dia has been doing regular work-out for last few months to get into the skin of her character. Though she hasn't slimmed down like Kareena Kapoor , she has got into a better shape.

Dia role requires her to shoot guns and do kick-ass action.

The shooting of 'Acid Factory' begins this week at the Ramoji Rao Film City, Hyderabad.
