Bollywood’s beauty queen Dia Mirza on Monday broke down in tears during a panel discussion on climate change at Jaipur Literature Festival. 

“Don’t hold back from being an empath. Don’t be afraid of shedding your tears. Feel it, feel the full extent of everything. It’s good. It gives us strength. It does. And this is not a performance,” she said, refusing to take a paper napkin when offered.— reports NDTV 

When asking her what made her emotional, Dia Mirza said, “My day started really well yesterday... At around 3 (early morning), this news alert came on my phone for a very big player, NBA player, who I followed for a while.”

Referring to Kobe Bryant's death in a helicopter crash along with his daughter and seven others, she said, “His chopper crashing in California disturbed me. It really upset me. There are different things that upset us on different days, but we take care of ourselves. I was overwhelmed because my blood pressure was low,” she added. — reports The Times of India  

Kobe Bryant and his 13-year old daughter Gianna Maria Onore Bryant were among the nine people killed when a helicopter they were traveling in crashed amid foggy conditions and burst into flames in the hills above Calabasas.
