Bollywood actress Dia Mirza calls gift-giving during Diwali ‘generation of waste’

The Diwali celebrations are already going on in full swing. However, actress Dia Mirza is getting trolled for her recent posts on Diwali.

In a recent post, which now stands deleted, the actress in collaboration with Daily Dump Compost talked about the practice of giving and receiving gifts on Diwali. In a video, the actress said that she doesn’t want any gifts as the process of gifting also means a lot of wastage in terms of packaging.

She said, “This Diwali don’t give me anything. Please don’t give me, gifts. I feel like during Diwali, we tend to give each other so many things that we don’t need. There is so much excessive packaging and so much waste we create. So this Diwali, don’t give me anything. Give me your time. Give me your support by segregating waste at home. The best gift you could give me this Diwali is supporting organisation that work for the health of the environment.”

The video has now been deleted but the actress is still getting trolled.

A few days before she posted this, Dia had also endorsed a colourful big box which she said was “a thoughtful gift for your mom and dad”.

She wrote, “Diwali, the festival of lights, is a time to express our gratitude and share love with those who mean the most. And what better way to do that than with a thoughtful gift for your favorite mom and dad, or those eagerly awaiting the arrival of their little one? ✨ Introducing the Allter’s Joyous Journey Gift Box – a bundle of love and care that’s designed to make the journey of parenthood even more beautiful.

“It’s not just a gift; it’s a symbol of the love, joy, and hope that Diwali brings into our lives. This Diwali, let your gift be a token of your affection, a wish for endless happiness, and a promise of support on their parenting adventure. Make this festive season truly joyous.”

These two posts are not in sync with each other and people are calling out her hypocrisy.
