Former beauty queen, established actress, producer, tv host and an environmentalist, Dia Mirza has added yet another impressive feat to her list of accomplishments with her successful appointment as United Nations Environment Goodwill Ambassador for India. A longstanding supporter of environmental conservation, Dia in her new role will work on raising awareness and seeking solutions to environmental problems that India continues to battle.
