Recently, Dangal actress Zaira Wasim quit her film career due to some personal reason. According to her, the acting field was a disruption in her faith and religion. A statement on her social media 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."
In a recent media interaction, Anupam Kher was asked about the same issue. He said, "I think it's a tragedy. I think it's a tragedy that a 16-17 year old girl has to take a decision like that. I do respect her sentiments, I do respect that it's her individual choice. But as a person i feel sad she had to take a decision like this of her flourishing career. On one hand, we talk about women empowerment and on the other hand we say that it's not like that. Personally, i feel she should not have done that. But she is an independent girl and our country gives everybody a fundamental right to choose what they want to choose."
"But the fact that she has gone all out to sort of say that I am doing it for religion or something like that..its a certain amount of tilt which has gone into it. She is most welcomed to take her decision. I felt sad when i read that. I felt that somewhere, she had to take that decision. It is not her decision," he further added.

Zaira made a beautiful decision. Alhumdullilah. What an amazing soul she is. So modest, intelligent and beautiful inside and out. She chose not to sell her soul to Bollywood. Respect to her.

Maybe she was forced to give up acting. She probably deliberately quoted religion so that everyone knows the truth and there is a discussion.

Regressive act at the end of the day - personal regressive choice is personal and still regressive too.

Regressive is to think that YOUR opinion about SOMEBODY'S life is superior. Personal choice IS personal choice. Even if somebody thinks it's regressive, it's not their business. Everyone has the right to do what they want to do with their life, until it hurts others. And her decision didn't affect anyone, so she's free to live her life the way she wants.

It is her choice what she wants to do, so the people who truly care for her should support the choice she has made and accept that it is what it is.

Obviously none of them will think she should have done that. The film industry has given them everything and they are all living happy profitable lives. Probably no one wonders what would have happened if they had cracked early under pressure.

Keep your opinions to yourself.
