What actually forced Zaira Wasim to quit Bollywood?
Zaira Wasim

Zaira wasim was a young emerging star of Bollywood. She rose to fame in 2016 when she started her career in “DANGAL”, which is one of Bollywood’s highest grossing films. She shot her last film which was for Priyanka Chopra and Farhan Akhtar’s “The Sky Is Pink” and according to latest reports; she has opted out of the promotions of the film.

She wrote on a Facebook post “This journey has been exhausting, to battle my soul for so long”. She further told about the struggles in the film industry and the impacts she has had on her relationship with religion. The post had gone viral, attracting thousands of comments and likes.

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 realize that though I may fit here perfectly, I do not belong here,” she wrote.

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 [faith]. While I continued to work in an environment that consistently interfered with my imaan [faith], my relationship with my religion was threatened.”

She added that the career often put her in a “vulnerable” position: “It was always so easy to succumb to the environment that damaged my peace, imaan [faith] and my relationship with Allah.”
