Former Bollywood actress Zaira Wasim announced her retirement from Bollywood movies earlier this month, and her sudden announcement came as a shock to many. The 'Dangal' and 'Secret Superstar' actress mentioned in her social media posts that she is quitting the industry due to religious beliefs.
During the song launch of 'Judgementall Hai Kya', the media caught up with the 'Manikarnika' actress and asked her to lend her thoughts on Wasim quitting Bollywood. To which, Ranaut said, "It should make you fulfill your life and if you think your life is already fulfilled, there's plenty of work around you. Try and help your family and friends. Kaveri is drying up. There's so much to do. So work and try and fulfill the environment around you. The essential fundamental requirement of any religion is to empower you, not disempower you."
Zaira Wasim in a recent Instagram post announced her "disassociation" from acting in Bollywood. Stating the reason behind her decision, the 18-year-old said that she was not happy with her current line of work, which has silently and unconsciously transitioned her "out of Imaan." The actor shared a detailed post on her social media page, which she also shared across other social media platforms, that read -- "Though I may fit here perfectly, I do not belong here."
On the work front, Zaira wrapped up shooting for the 'The Sky is Pink' in March alongside Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Farhan Akhtar. The Shonali Bose's directorial will mark her last silver screen appearance. It narrates the story of a motivational speaker, Aisha Chaudhary, who was diagnosed with an immune deficiency order, called pulmonary fibrosis, at the age of 13. The biographical drama is scripted by Juhi Chaturvedi and will be jointly produced by Priyanka, RSVP and Roy Kapur Films.
