NEW DELHI: Actor Dia Mirza has begun shooting for a first-of-its-kind Indo-Iranian co-production opposite Iranian superstar Mohammad Reza Golzar. 

“This movie is going to be a confluence of the two countries as well as Indian and Iranian cultures and that’s what got me really excited,” said Mirza.

The movie titled Salaam Mumbai explores the tumultuous love story of the two main protagonists.

“Golzar is considered to be the Shah Rukh Khan of Iranian cinema, and through him I thought it would be interesting to be exposed to a new audience of 80 million Iranians,” she added.

Interestingly, the deal came through when Mirza met Shah Rukh Khan’s doctor Dr Ali Irani, who in turn introduced her to the Iranian producer.

“This is a movie about two medical students from different parts of the world finding love, and one that will capture the rich cinematic legacies of the two countries,” she added.

Salaam Mumbai is directed by Iranian director Ghorban Mohammadpour and has Javad Norouzbeigi as one of the producers. Previously, Norouzbeigi has also partnered with Majid Majidi on The Sea of Sparrows.

“As the world shrinks and artists from different countries collaborate to work together, it’s a great opportunity for us to learn and take our art to newer platforms and audiences,” added Mirza.
