Dia Mirza, the actress playing a crucial role in Sanju, bought one of the best gifts for Sanjay Dutt. She bid for a “Mother India” poster with the veteran actress Nargis Dutt on it in an auction and bought it for Sanju Baba.
The UN Environment Goodwill Ambassador, Dia Mirza bought this poster for Rs 145,000
The poster was bought from Osian's IIFA Auction which was held in Bangkok recently as a closing ceremony of IIFA. Our Miss Asia Pacific 2000, Dia is already known for her community services and contribution towards the industry.
Anil Kapoor bid for an iconic poster of "Mughal-e-Azam" and bought it for Rs 210,000. Whereas Anupam Kher got his hands on the half-sheet poster of "Bandini" for Rs 26,000 as well as a poster of "Kabuliwala" for Rs 34,000 which was very rare.
Neville Tuli, Chairman of Osian's Group said "The auction was a major step forward in persuading the Indian film fraternity regarding a shared responsibility towards nurturing our cinematic culture and preserving the rare and fragile cinematic heritage. Stars such as Anupam Kher, Anil Kapoor, Dia Mirza, Bobby Deol, all contributed with a genuine love and commitment towards this long and shared journey. Hopefully, with the opening of the Osianama Research Center, Archives and Library on October 1, the unity of the film fraternity towards this cause will be evident to the whole world."
