Mumbai, July 21 (IANS) Producer-actress Dia Mirza is busy casting for three films being made under her banner and says she would love to work with "Kahaani" actress Vidya Balan.

She co-owns production house Born Free Entertainment along with her beau, businessman Sahil Sangha, and actor Zayed Khan. "Love Breakups Zindagi" was their first venture.

"Vidya is someone who I would love to cast in the film. She is a dear friend with a great temperament. She is an easy person to be with and is a powerhouse performer," Dia told IANS in an interview.

Her wish list doesn't end on Vidya. Adding more names, she said: "I would love to work with Huma Qureshi and Richa Chadda - they are very talented actors."

Talking about the status of three projects, Dia said: "We are in the process of developing three films."

"We will start filming in October. We have invested a year-and-a-half in scripting. It is everything that we stand by...All three will release mid next year," she said.

The common thread between the three films is "universal human stories".

"They are all human interest stories. If I had to streamline the genre, I would say each one of them is coming-of-age stories. The milieu of the characters is different. I am excited about the quality of writing. Each writer was given a-year-and-a-half. It has been an exciting and exasperating process," she said.

Filmmaking is different from narrating good stories on celluloid.

"A lot of us are in a hurry to just make a film. I was clear that whatever I do, it should take care of everything. The priority was story. I wanted to tell unique stories," she said.

The actress also added that she is not keen on acting in her films.

"I will not take up any role, if the film does not need me," she said.
