Born to a German father and a Bengali mother, this light-eyed damsel first started working at the age of 16 as a marketing executive at Sriven Mult-tech in Hyderabad. She earned a monthly salary of Rs 5000, with a 15 per cent commision. She has done an advertising campaign which appeared in Femina. After the pictures came out she was encouraged to participate in the Miss India competition thats when Miss India happened.

At 18, this quiet, introverted girl entered the Femina Miss India Contest to have some fun. She walked away with 3 titles – Miss Beautiful Smile, The Sony Viewers’ Choice Award and Femina Miss India-Asia Pacific.

As a career move, the Hyderabad girl shifted to Mumbai, away from home and family.

She opted to do her First Year Bachelor of Arts via correspondence, but as the Miss Asia Pacific competition drew closer, juggling work and studies became close to impossible, especially with her modeling assignments, traveling and training.

Her first film, opposite Madhavan – ‘Rehaana Hai Tere Dil Mein’ did not make a big splash. But it spelt one thing - Diya Mirza had arrived. Diya Mirza also worked in a film with Arjun Rampal titled ‘Deewanapan’ and ‘Tumsa Nahin Dekha’ which did not do well either.

In 2005, Mirza appeared in ‘Parineeta’, a Vidhu Vinod Chopra production. In 2006 she teamed up once again with Chopra and Sanjay Dutt for the successful film ‘Lage Raho Munna Bhai’. She also played in the music video Kajara Mohabbat Wala from Sonu Nigam album Kajara Nite. She has also appeared in ‘Dus’, ‘Fight Club’, ‘Shootout in Lokhandwala’ and also in the latets, 'Dus Kahaaniyan'.
