Dia Mirza remembers her debut series on OTT as it turns two

Dia Mirza

Two years ago, Dia Mirza-starrer and Sonal Nair- directorial Kaafir made its debut as a web series and instantly connected with audiences across the world. Written by Bhavani Iyer, the series told the story of Kainaaz Akhtar, a woman who mistakenly crosses the LOC and is presumed to be a militant. Dia says, “It is difficult to not empathise with a woman who goes through so much suffering for no fault of hers. A woman is also a mother and no longer knows if she will ever experience a sense of home. It is a human story. It will always be relevant for its message of love and peace but is particularly pertinent now as we are being reminded by the pandemic of our shared humanity.”

She also won a Critic’s Choice nod for Best Actor (OTT) at Gold Awards.
