The incident in question happened a few days ago when Dia was in New Castle, UK to shoot scenes for Hum Tum Aur Ghost. It was late in the night and a tired Dia was rushing back to the apartment she was staying in after wrapping up the day’s shoot. When she entered the building, she just wanted to head straight to her room and crash.
What she didn’t realise was that Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo happened to be sitting in the lobby of the building.
As she walked past him, she didn’t directly look at the man because he was talking on the phone,
After reaching the apartment only she came to know from her entourage, that it was Cristiano Ronaldo whom she saw. Dia is a big fan of Ronaldo and follows most of his matches.
Not wanting to waste any more time, Dia decided to go down to the lobby and check whether he was still there. But by time she reached the place she had last seen him, the man was nowhere in sight.
An extremely disappointed Dia had no option but to trudge back to her apartment. When contacted, the actor rued, “It was my loss. I’ve wanted to meet Ronaldo for so many years and I missed this golden opportunity.”
