As expected the Dia Mirza wedding was a star studded affair with Lara Dutta, Sushmita Sen, Sophie Choudhury, Zayed Khan, Cyrus Sahukar and Aditi Rao Hydari all in attendance, amongst others.
The rites of the marriage themselves were conducted in the fashion of Arya Samaj, of which Dia has been a lifelong follower and admirer.
Upon his return to India, Sahil worked with Sunil Manchanda of MAD films fame, and was the assistant director for 2007’s John Abraham starrer, Salaam-e-Ishq.
Dia Mirza was born Dia Handrich to Deepa and Frank Handrich in the city of Hyderabad.
Her father who separated from her mother when Dia was just four years old, was a German graphic and industrial designer and artist, and her mother a Bengali Hindu who worked as an interior designer and landscaper.
For long rumors circulated about the couple being a pair, of which no official word was uttered, but at the October 2011 launch of their movie Love Breakups Zindagi which was directed by Sahil himself and released under the Born Free banner, Dia Mirza officially confirmed that they were a pair.
