On February 15 of this year, Dia Mirza married Vaibhav Rekhi in a private ceremony attended by close family and friends. Dia released a rare photo from her wedding rituals, dressed in a beautiful benarasi saree, on the occasion of National Handloom Day.
She captioned the post as, “There is so much to love, respect and treasure about our #IndianHandlooms!!!Have you ever witnessed our master craftsmen/women at work? It is easily one of the most spellbinding processes. The precision and fluidity with which those hands and feet move so perfectly synchronised with the rhythm of the loom creating poetry in motion…These craft forms are ours to celebrate everyday On National Handloom Day, 7th of August, let’s come together to celebrate the culturally rich and incredible textiles of India. Let’s appreciate the hands behind the looms that work meticulously to weave the finest of the fabrics. #DilseHandloom #IamHandloomingit #CreativeDignity #SDGs #GlobalGoals@aradhana_nagpal along with @creativedignity and @antaran_transformingcrafts have initiated #DilSeHandloom #IAmHandloomingIt and it is to spread the message of love, respect and a way for us to come together to show our support for our craftspeople.

For the unversed, Dia and her husband, Vaibhav Rekhi recently welcomed their first kid, Avyaan Azaad Rekhi. Dia had written an emotional statement alerting followers that their baby,was born on May 14.
A part of her post read, “Having arrived early, our little miracle has since then been cared for by tireless nurses and doctors in the Neonatal ICU. A sudden appendectomy during my pregnancy and a subsequent and very severe bacterial infection could have led to sepsis and proven to be life threatening. Thankfully, the timely care and intervention by our doctor ensured the safe birth of our baby via an emergency C-section. As we watch this tiny being, this Zen master in awe and wonder, we learn from him, in all humility, the true meaning of trusting the universe and of parenthood.”
