Dia Mirza is in a happy space, both personally and professionally. The actress recently tied the knot with businessman Vaibhav Rekhi in an intimate ceremony in Mumbai recently, which was officiated by a female priest.
In fact, in a lengthy post on Instagram, Dia wrote about how the couple consciously chose to have a female priest for their nuptials.
“The highest point for us was the Vedic ceremony conducted by a woman priest! I had never seen a woman performing a wedding ceremony until I attended my childhood friend Ananya’s wedding a few years ago. Ananya’s wedding gift to Vaibhav and me was to bring Sheela Atta who is her aunt and also a priestess, to perform the ceremony for us.”
Dia says woman’s soul contains love, wonder, benediction, magical energy, tenderness and deep empathy for all lives
“She also painstakingly went through several hours of training to imbibe the essence of the scriptures so that she could assist Sheela Atta and translate the shlokas! It was such a privilege and a joy to be married this way! We do hope with all our heart that many more couples make this choice. For it is a woman’s soul that contains love, wonder, benediction, magical energy, tenderness and deep empathy for all that lives. It is time for women to own their own agency, their divinity, their power and to redefine what is old and birth what is new. So what can be more uplifting and empowering than to see the sacred fire within a woman’s heart and soul taking centre stage at a wedding?” wrote Dia.
The actress is also an avid environmentalist, often talking about the myriad benefits of sustainable living.
In fact, in a recent interview, the actress revealed that she never has trouble finding birthday gifts because she simply plants 10 trees as the gift and sends the receiver a certificate about it. On the work front, Dia was last seen on the big screen in the Taapsee Pannu starrer, ‘Thappad’.
