Dia Mirza opens up on her near-death experience, says, ‘it was a tough time’ – Beauty Pageants – Indiatimes

Following her national and international win in pageantry, Dia Mirza made her Bollywood debut with
Rehna Hai Terre Dil Mein and made her way to everyone’s heart with her performance.

While she enjoyed over 21 years of her career success in the entertainment industry, she donned many more hats including those of a producer, UNEP Goodwill Ambassador, United Nations SDGs Advocate, Ambassador – Wildlife Trust of India, Save The Children, and IFAW-Global, along with the world’s greatest title: a mother. Recently, during an exclusive interaction with ETimes, she opened up about her ‘near-death experience.’

Opening up, she said, “I had to go in for an appendectomy in the fifth month of my pregnancy. I was in and out of hospital subsequently because of an acute bacterial infection that could have led to sepsis while I was in my sixth month of pregnancy. My baby had to be delivered because my placenta had started to hemorrhage. It was a tough time, and I’m grateful for my gynecologist who saved our lives.”

The stunning queen has faced every difficult situation with a smile and looks at the abundant joy she received with the birth of her son, Avyaan Azaad Rekhi; she hopes to cherish every moment she has together with her family.

As part of her 40th birthday wish, Dia continues to raise funds to support the families of frontline forest staff who died due to COVID-19. With an aim to raise a total of ₹80 lakhs during a span of 40 days, Dia pledged to donate ₹40 lakhs (one lakh per day) and has so far raised ₹35 lakhs. “All of humanity has been shaken by the past two years. Inequalities have widened, the fractures of our societies have deepened. But at the same time, there have been so many good people working towards helping those in need. The lesson that COVID-19 has taught me is that nothing is more urgent than restoring natural balance and improving our relationship with the natural world. And nothing is more important than health. The most important lesson is that all human health is connected to the health of the planet,” she said.
