Mihika Kushwaha is making her debut in the film industry with Dear Dia. Talking about her movie, Mihika Kushwaha says, “We have grown up watching Bollywood movies where the love triangles were always idealistic. But this film has something unique about it. It all feels very real and practicable. We hope that Dear Dia touches your heart and leaves you awestruck.”
Kamlesh Singh Kushwaha, the movie’s producer, gives his thoughts:
When asked, “Many love triangle films have been made. What makes Dear Dia unique?” The Producer stated “The treatment given to the film is different. The climax is unusual from the typical happy endings of Indian cinema. It will be difficult for audiences to judge things as the story moves further.”
“Are there any recollections from the set of Dear Dia that you’d want to share?” Kamlesh Singh Kushwaha shared that “Once, during the winter shoots, we shot for almost 16 to 18 hours, and had to stop the shoot because of extreme fog at around 3 am. Next, we were shooting at Medanta Hospital in Lucknow. Mihika and Ujjawal were seriously injured in a scene, so the makeup that the artist did was so real that it felt as if they were really injured in an accident. Both the actors had bandages rolled over their body parts, blood oozing out of the plaster and a lot of marks on their bodies. When the actors were roaming the hospital, hospital staff and other people asked them to sit and relax as they thought they were seriously injured, but they did not know that both of the actors were in the character’s ensembles.”
Lastly, “Do you believe Dear Dia will be a box office success?” to which Dear Dia movie’s producer replied that “It was a super hit movie in the Kannada language with no songs and we have added four beautiful songs, sung by iconic singers like Jubin Nautiyal, Shankar Mahadevan, Palak Muchhal and Jyotica Tangri. And the movie is going to blast.”
