“Though I may fit here perfectly, I do not belong here.” Bollywood woke up to shocking news this morning as the Dangal, Secret Superstar and The Sky Is Pink actress Zaira Wasim quit Bollywood. 18-year-old Zaira gave a lengthy explanation on social media about what made her take this step. She decided to take this drastic decision of leaving acting because it is interfering with her religion.  According to her as she is unable to feel at ease. The actress opened up about how she procrastinated taking this decision and tried to slide the thought aside every time it bothered her before, but now she feels it is time to take action. She revealed that being in show business affected her beliefs and she “silently transitioned out of her imaan.”

She further went on to reveal that she battled with trying to be someone she is not, she said, “I continued to observe things and twist my perceptions as I wanted them to be, without really understanding that the key is to see them as they are. I kept trying to escape, but somehow I always ended up hitting a dead end, in an endless loop with a missing element that kept torturing me with a longing I was neither able to make sense of nor satisfy. Until I decided to confront my weakness and began to strive and correct my lack of knowledge and understanding by attaching my heart with the words of Allah. In the great and divine wisdom of the Quran, I found sufficiency and peace.” Read her full post right here…

We wish Zaira Wasim all the best for her inner journey...
