Actress-producer Dia Mirza, 36, says she is perceived to be at an awkward age in the entertainment business.

“In the entertainment business, I find myself to battle the age perception. Two aspects to it — one since I started young, people think I am older simply because I have been around for a while,” Mirza said in a statement.

“The second one is that I am seen to be at an age where I am not young to be cast alongside male actors who happen to be my age. At the same time I am not mature enough to play older female characters. It’s an age conundrum,” she added.

Mirza was last seen on the big screen in ‘Sanju’ as Manyata Dutt. She will next be seen in two TV shows. As a producer, she has another web series titled ‘Mind The Malhotras’ in the works.
