Zaira Wasim Quits Bollywood!

Zaira Wasim, the muslim girl who became famous after her superb debut in Aamir Khan’s Bollywood blockbuster “Dangal” and later won hearts for her incredible performance in “Secret Superstar” bids goodbye to her acting career as “relationship with my religion threatened”

In a detailed post on instagram, the 18-year-old star talked in-depth about this topic

She wrote:

“As I complete 5 years today, I want to confess that I’m not truly happy with this identity i.e my line of work. For a very long time now it has felt like I have struggled to become someone else. As I had just started to explore and make sense of the things to which I dedicated my time, efforts and emotions and tried to grab hold of a new lifestyle, it was only for me to realise that though I may fit here perfectly, I do not belong here. This field indeed brought a lot of love, support, and applause my way, but what it also did was to lead me to a path of ignorance, as I silently and unconsciously transitioned out of imaan.”

“I was constantly battling with my soul to reconcile my thoughts and instincts to fix a static picture of my imaan and I failed miserably, not just once but a hundred times…I continued to put myself in a vulnerable position where it was always so easy to succumb to the environment that damaged my peace, my imaan…” “exhausting, to battle my soul for so long” and life was too short yet too long to be at war with oneself: “Therefore, today I arrive at this well-grounded decision and I officially declare my disassociation with this field.”

We wish her nothing but the best for the future, as she took a path very few dare to take at this age. Her life, her choice ❤️
