Mumbai, Feb. 25 -- Several Bollywood actors have been in situations where their fans have gone out of their way to do something special for them. While a fan of Deepika Padukone created a website for her, Siddharth Malhotra received 42 bouquets from his female fans on his 28th birthday (January 16). Recently, Dia Mirza, too, encountered a similar situation.
The actor was dining with her husband, Sahil Sangha, at a restaurant in Lower Parel, when a woman came up to her. "She walked up to their table and introduced herself as Poornima. She told Dia that she has been an admirer of her work," says a source close to the actor.
The fan then mentioned that she is an artist and has made a sketch of the actor. "She expressed her wish to gift the sketch to her. Dia readily agreed to accept it. The fan then sent the sketch to Dia the next day," adds the source.
When contacted, Dia confirmed the news, saying, "I was out enjoying a meal when this young lady walked up to me. She apologised for intruding, but said she had to because she made a sketch of me that she wanted me to see. Her admiration was humbling."
