Actress Dia Mirza, who was last seen playing Sanjay Dutt's wife Maanyata Dutt in Rajkumar Hirani’s recent release Sanju has now a baby rhino named after her.

Dia, who is the UN Goodwill Ambassador For Environment, recently had a baby rhino (born at the Ol Pejeta Conservancy) named after her. 

 
In 2010, Dia had adopted and named two leopard cubs Ashoka and Nakshatra from the Lucknow Zoo after being requested by the zoo authorities to do so as the mother of the cubs was also named Dia.
 
Dia is known for lending her support to many environmental and social causes and has been recognized by the United Nations for her contribution to environmental conservation along with global celebrities like Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Angelina Jolie, Katy Perry and Emma Watson.
