As soon as Dangal fame Zaira Wasim announced her decision to quit Bollywood, a lot of B-town celebs have lashed out at the young actress for her regressive comments. While Ravenna Randon criticized Zaira for her thoughts, Nitesh Tiwari said that although he was shocked to read Zaira’s note but at the end of the day, it is her life and she ​​can lead it the way she wants to. Now today, we have Tanushree Dutta, who released a statement supporting Zaira for her decision as she said that in a time when young minds are getting corrupted, Zaira is the voice of reason to show the world “the true mystical and graceful wisdom of the Quran.” Tanushree’s statement read, "I woke up this morning here in New Jersey with my phone buzzing with a request to give a quote on the Zaira Wasim issue. I wondered what the "issue" is as the journalist put it. A quick internet search revealed a post from Wasim herself what I consider the most beautiful, Grace-filled words drenched in spiritual wisdom from the Holy Quran. What a great way to start my day!

“As I read the full post I couldn't help but wonder if Zaira's true calling in life is in fact to be a young spiritual leader of some sort guiding young Muslim kids to the true knowledge of Allah and Quran?? I wondered if Bollywood was just an interim phase designed and placed by God in her way to simply be a stepping stone for something greater more fulfilling and profound of a life purpose?? I kept reading her post as there was a magnetism to it, A magnetism I'm much too familiar with: it's the magnetism of the word of God revealed through a human vessel that has the ability to bless the soul," the statement read. Tanushree added, “In today's times' many young minds are getting corrupted through fanaticism and aggressive violent ideologies; Can Zaira be the voice of reason and show the world the true mystical and Gracefull wisdom of the Quran?? If she does she surely has one follower in me. Wouldn't it be wonderful to have this Kid start a youtube blog sharing her faith?? Clearly, her understanding and grasp on religion are far superior to what I have seen so far amongst seasoned clerics even, perhaps it's due to her youthful innocence and I pray it remains that way and she receives more grace and wisdom from the Almighty to share with others! And now for people who are criticizing her decision to quit Bollywood, I'll say: cut her some slack... she is only a teenager.”

On Sunday, Secret Superstar actress released a post on social media wherein she said that after completing five years in the profession, she was not happy with the line of work and therefore, she plans to quit Bollywood to follow her religion.

This Day That Year


What a beautiful and graceful statement. Finally someone who has understood the essence of the post and wasn't blinded the rightful criticism of their dear industry.

U can choose to talk about this that and the other.
No one is going to cast you.

Go back to wherever.
I don't know if it was a better place but news pages were better without your nonsense

Hats off to her, unlike her racist counterpart who only lives 'for the industry'. Raveena forgot her past, post her breakup with AK when 'the industry' didn't support her except for Suniel Shetty and Govinda as per her own interviews of the time.

Tanusree Dutta...love & respect for u...really feel bad tht u dint get justice in India.

Tanushree Dutta ... Confused clown .
Lived in US for few years. Kept jumping from one religion to another. You need psychiatric help yourself. Stop giving advices. Wasim has the right to quit and do whatever she likes. But stop bringing religion and justifying the superiority of her faith. Her whole post was about being a Muslim, Islam, Allah , and all that BS nobody wants to hear. If a Hindu actress posted in the same lines you would be the first one to bring race & religion in the conversation. So shut the hell up

I have found new respect for Tanushree Dutta.
