It is good to be bad: Dia Mirza


Dia trained with Dia Mirza to develop the agility that her character required in the movie.

"An actor's body needs agility to carry off the action or stunt sequence convincingly. The body needs to be in optimum form. I trained to develop it before the film went on floors," Dia, whose character has shades of grey in the movie, told reporters here, unveiling the film's "first look" .

"Besides, it's good to be bad," she said.

Dia's is the only female character in the movie, which has and ensemble cost of Danny, Fardeen Khan, Irrfan Khan, Aftab Shivdasani, Manoj Bajpayee and Dino Morea.

Directed by Supran Verma and produced by Sanjay Gupta of White Feather Films, "Acid Factory" will release worldwide on September 3.

Actor Irrfan Khan, fresh from the success of 'New York' seemed to be in a jovial mood.

When asked what he was doing in such a stylised Bollywood action flick, the actor said, "Supran told me that I will be holding guns and romancing Dia. I said I am in. But then, what about acting? and the director told me forget it for once," Irrfan joked.

Fardeen, who last worked with Supran in "Ek Khiladi Ek Haseena", said that actors needed to be in a certain frame of mind while working in the "Acid Factory".

"They don't trust each other, but are still part of the same gang," he said.

The actor said that contrary to their onscreen role, they all shared a special bond during the shooting of the film in Ramoji Rao Film city in Hyderabad and South Africa.

We discovered each other as friends and people," the actor said.

On repeating Supran after his failed box office debut, producer Sanjay Gupta said he does not look at the director's body of work but the energy level he possesses before signing them on for his banner.

"I like to do films which defy formula and does not go down the beaten path," he said.
Gulshan Grover, however, seemed miffed with the producer that despite being an integral part of the film, he was missing from the promos and trailers.

"I would like to believe that it is part of marketing strategy," he said, to which Sanjay Gupta said Gulshan was a surprise package in the film.
