“Honestly, when we do events here in India, I feel very happy. There are so many beautiful and exotic locations in our country; I don’t believe that we need to go overseas to have a spectacular event. I think you can have great events being in India,” said Dia when asked about the difference between organizing events at foreign locations vis-a-vis India.
The actress, who is a jury member for the EEMAX awards of the Event and Entertainment Management Association (EEMA), said: “It is very interesting to see entries from different parts of country and different entertainment companies. I am too a part of entertainment industry and we actors too somehow become a part of this industry.
“It is a sector which contributes significantly to the national exchequer, which is growing tremendously. We Indians are very fond of marriage ceremonies and even birthday parties are also celebrated in a grand fashion.”
Dia feels that these kind of awards are important for event organizers and people who work for it, because “they bring so much happiness in the life of people”.
