Bollywood actress Dia Mirza remembered the tremendous impact the film 'Lage Raho Munna Bhai' made on 15th anniversary of its release.
The film is a sequel to the hit film 'Munnabhai MBBS' and is directed by Rajkumar Hirani.
The movie stars Sanjay Dutt, Vidya Balan, Arshad Warsi, and Boman Irani in lead roles and inspired Gandhigiri amongst the audience.
A film like 'Lage Raho Munna Bhai' always remains relevant because of its theme. It is very rare that a film addresses really complicated societal issues in such a simple yet profound way. The questions that the film tackled in 2006 are still meaningful. @RajkumarHirani @VVCFilms pic.twitter.com/LlGg4QGPkc— Dia Mirza (@deespeak) September 1, 2021
These values are timeless and can never be obsolete. Terms like 'Gandhigiri' and 'Get well soon" are now part of the popular lexicon forever because of this film. Proud to be a part of this amazing movie 🙏🏻🙏🏻 #15YearsOfLageRahoMunnabhai @RajkumarHirani @VVCFilms— Dia Mirza (@deespeak) September 1, 2021
Dia Mirza plays a crucial role as a girl who has been weighed down by superstition as she is 'manglik.'
'Lage Raho Munna Bhai' was the first Hindi film to be shown at the United Nations (UN).
Mirza has been open about women's rights and environmental issues. She is also UN Environment Goodwill Ambassador.
