New Delhi, News24 Bureau, June 30: The gorgeous Kashmiri girl Zaira Wasim, who impressed fans worldwide with her inspiring films like 'Dangal' and 'Secret Superstar', shocked B-town today by announcing her decision of quitting Bollywood. This decision of Zaira has surely disheartened her fans but a number of renowned personalities and politicians have come up in support of the 'Dangal' star's decision.
Zaira, who completed her 5 years in Bollywood today, in her long Instagram note opened her heart out and revealed the reason for taking this big decision. In her Instagram note, Zaira wrote, "As I complete 5 years today, I want to confess that I am not truly happy with this identity, that is, my line of work.''
But the diva is receiving backlash on social media for her decision. This is not for the first time when Zaira has landed herself in a controversy. Earlier, also during the release of her film 'Dangal' when Zaira met former Jammu & Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti two years ago, she was massively targeted by social media users. Zaira was later forced to apologise on a social media platform for this act.
Zaira later, clarifying it on social media, wrote that she did not want "anyone to follow in my footsteps or even consider me as a role model".
This FB post was later deleted by Zaira:
In her long FB post, Zaira publicly apologized and wrote, "I hope people still remember that I'm a just a 16-year-old girl and I hope you treat me accordingly."
Zaira, who was basking in the success of her film 'Dangal' and 'Secret Superstar', earlier in 2017 alleged that she was molested on a flight en route to Mumbai. She shared an Instagram video in which she spoke about her co-passenger blaming him of running his foot over her neck and back.
In the video, Zaira was in tears stating, ''The whole irony of this is… when I yelled… This is not done at all, I am disturbed, that is fine, but this is not how anybody should be made to feel! This is terrible! Is this how you are going to take care of girls? No one is going to help us if we don’t speak up for ourselves, and this is the worst thing.”
