The 35-year-old actor has been recognised by the United Nations for her contribution to environment conservation. "I feel honoured and inspired by this opportunity to work with UN Environment to protect the environment and promote sustainable development. Environmental issues will be the defining challenge of this era, and I am committed to helping the UN as a Goodwill Ambassador to do everything I can to provide a better future," Dia said in a statement. As a Goodwill Ambassador, the actor will work with the UN to further spread the message on priority areas including clean air, clean seas, wildlife protection and climate change.

Congratulating Dia to the programme, UN Environment head, Erik Solheim said he is elated to have someone of her stature whose popularity in India will help the cause immensely.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)You begin the day with optimism and succeed in every endeavor you undertake. Others call it luck, but it is determination and hard work. When negotiating new work today remember to keep your options open and accept less. It could lead to a regular source of income. Accept an invitation, which will be a new experience. Perhaps also bring a new charming person into your life, which will be exciting.
