Remember how Daisy Shah was spotted as a background dancer in Salman Khan‘s Lagan Lagi from Tere Naam? Who knew Dia Mirza burst into the silver screen the same way! Dia, who won Miss Asia Pacific the same year Lara Dutta and Priyanka Chopra were crowned Miss Universe and Miss World respectively was a background dancer just a year before the beauty pageant. The actress was in the catchy song Jumbalaka Jumbalaka from the Tamil movie En Swasa Katre, which was re-adapted for the Bollywood movie Thakshak.
After winning the crown, Dia made her Bollywood debut with Rehna Hai Tere Dil Mein. She looked like a beauty queen back then as well, didn’t she?
