Dia Mirza opened up about how she feels about premarital sex and pregnancy.

She stated that it is a “personal choice” and can only be “celebrated” by those who are not threatened during the decision-making process.

Dia Married businessman Vaibhav Rekhi in February 2021. Just over a month later, she announced she was pregnant and in July 2021, she gave birth to a boy named Avyaan.

The actress was criticised over the timing of her marriage and pregnancy.

She then came out and said she did not get married because of her pregnancy.

Dia has now spoken about premarital sex and pregnancy amid the ongoing criticism Alia Bhutt is facing after she announced her pregnancy two months after marrying Ranbir Kapoor.

Dia explained: “I feel when it comes to personal choice and the power of personal choice, it can only be celebrated by those who ensure they make personal choices, not threatened, not afraid of making the choice that you need to as an individual.”

Saying that society is not as progressive as one might think, Dia continued:

“And while there may be many people with regressive thoughts on things like premarital sex or premarital pregnancy or any other things for that matter, there are enough people who recognise the fact that it is a personal choice, that people have the right to do if they choose to.

“I don’t think we are as progressive as we imagine or as we consider ourselves to be.”
