Dia Mirza is eagerly waiting for the naming ceremony of her kids. Surprised? The pretty actress will soon be naming cubs of a leopardess, which incidentally is also named Dia Mirza. The Prince of Wales Zoological Garden, Lucknow has sent an official invitation to Dia Mirza to visit them and name the two cubs of the leopardess, which was rescued from Mirzapur and brought to Lucknow by the wild life department of
UP in 2004. The director of The Prince of Wales Zoological Garden, Lucknow, Mrs Renu Singh from Indian Forest Services, said that they named the leopardess Dia Mirza as she was rescued from Mirzapur.

One of the leopardess’s legs had to be amputated and after recovering, she mated with Akbar who was rescued from Allahabad. The leopardess delivered two lovely cubs in June 2009.

Dia confirms and says, “I will name them Ashoka and Nakshatra. It’s really sweet of
them to have named the leopardess after me. As soon as I finish promotions of Acid Factory, I will go to Lucknow to meet the leopardess and the two cubs. I will gladly shoulder whatever responsibility they want me to take up.”

Singh says, “It’s the first time that this leopardess has given birth which is why we requested Dia Mirza to visit us and bless the cubs. We have sent her an official letter requesting her to adopt and name them. She has accepted our request and we are eagerly waiting for her.”
