It came as a shocker to everyone when Dangal actress Zaira Wasim decided to quit acting. In a lengthy note, Zaira wrote that 5 years ago she decided to explore this industry but in the quest lost all her blessings of life. She also said that her profession interfered with her faith and religion.


Some excerpts from her note read "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."


"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', my relationship with my religion was threatened."


"I kept procrastinating by tricking and deluding my conscience into the idea that I know what I am doing doesn't feel right but assumed that I will put an end to this whenever the time feels right and I continued to put myself in a vulnerable position where it was always so easy to succumb to the environment that damaged my peace, ‘imaan' and my relationship with Allah (God)."





While some celebrities came out in Zaira's support some did not support her decision. Raveena Tandon wrote on her Twitter "I standby and love my industry,all the opportunities it gives to everyone. Exit is your choice,reason,by all means.Just do not demean it for everyone else.The industry where all work shoulder to shoulder,no differences,caste, religion or where you come from. #Respect #indianfilms."


Zaira debuted with Aamir Khan starrer Dangal and later appeared in Secret Superstar. She will be next seen in Shonali Bose's The Sky Is Pink.
