MUMBAI: Former beauty queen Dia Mirza made her Bollywood acting debut with "Rehnaa Hai Terre Dil Mein" 18 years ago. Remembering the film fondly, she says the romantic drama was ahead of its time.

The film was released 18 years ago on October 19, and Dia reminisced the journey.

"Firsts are always special but 'RHTDM' is a film that was ahead of its time, and packaged romance in a beautiful story. Apart from being a memorable start to my acting career, it has given me lifelong relationships and friendships that I cherish every day. Even now, it is difficult to believe it has been 18 years since we shot the film," said Dia.
