Actress Dia Mirza, who made her Bollywood debut with 2001 release "Rehna Hai Tere Dil Mein", has dedicated her first Bengali film "Paanch Adhyay" to her mother.

"It is my first Bengali and my first regional film ever. I dedicate this to my mother, who is a Bengali. She is turning 60 this year and it was a very special moment for me when she saw the movie and said 'this is the best birthday gift you could have ever given me'," Dia said.

She was here at a press conference of the film after it was screened Tuesday at the ongoing 14th Mumbai Film Festival.

"Paanch Adhyay" is film critic turned director Pratim Das Gupta's first film. It is the story of love found and lost in the lives of a contemporary Indian couple, told in moments of past and present.

Talking about her role in the film the 30-year-old actress said: "My character Ishita is not serious but is a very mature woman. Something which I have not played earlier. It is diametrically opposite to the kind of roles I have played till now."

The cast of the film includes actors Priyanshu Chatterjee, Soumitra Chatterjee and Sampurna Lahiri.
