Dangal actress Zaira Wasim yesterday took to her social media to say that she is quitting Bollywood. The Secret Superstar actress told yesterday that her ‘imaan and religion’ were being hampered along with her conscience. Now as per new reports coming in, there is a different twist in the tale.
This Kashmiri girl became famous overnight after her superb debut in Aamir Khan’s Bollywood blockbuster “Dangal” on Sunday said she has decided to say goodbye to her film career as “relationship with my religion threatened”.
Zaira’s social media manager, Tuhin Mishra in a report to Aaj Tak, said that her account was hacked and apparently she did not write the 5 paged philosophical article on her social media. But, this is not it, the actress has confirmed to the news channel that she herself has penned the letter. More deets are awaited into this matter of Zaira’s account.
In a detailed post on her Facebook page, the 18-year-old cited religious reasons for her decision to quit her promising career in Bollywood.
“Five years ago I made a decision that changed my life forever. As I stepped my foot in Bollywood, it opened doors of massive popularity for me. I started to become the prime candidate of public attention, I was projected as the gospel of the idea of success and was often identified as a role model for the youth. However, that’s never something that I set out to do or become, especially with regards to my ideas of success and failure, which I had just started to explore and understand.”
On the work front, she will be seen in Priyanka Chopra’s The Sky Is Pink which is directed by Shonali Bose. Only time will tell whether she will be seen in any more films after this.
