Dia Mirza on how brutal media used to traumatise her as a young actress

In an interview with BollywoodLife, Dia Mirza opened up about the time when she used to face brutal media reviews. Elaborating more on this, the actress revealed that she used to get traumatised due to the same. However, she feels that now the reviewers have become more dignified and restrict themselves from passing personal comments on the celebrities. She said:

"In our times, the media was brutal. I remember some reviewers would get so personal while evaluating work. I would be traumatized after reading such reviews. I feel reviewers are more dignified now, and do not pass personal comments. I feel people have a right to comment on work. It helps us improve. But I feel in general, we should be kinder to one another, the world will be a better place then."

Dia on how celebs had more privacy during her younger days

In the same conversation, Dia also addressed the huge debate between nepo kids and outsiders. She mentioned that although many eminent A-listers in the industry have the privilege of being selective about what to share on social media, there is immense pressure on every newcomer. Further, mentioning that younger actors have to struggle a lot now, she added:

"We had so much more privacy in our times. Still, we are so selective about what we want to share on social media. Young actors may or may not have that luxury. When they put out so much, they have to learn to deal with brickbats."
