It was on Sunday that National award winner Zaira Wasim took to social media to inform all her followers that she is quitting Bollywood because it threatens her religious sentiments. Soon after, while some B-town celebs lashed out at her for her regressive views,  others believed that it is her life and that she is entitled to her own opinions. From Ranveena Tandon, Anupam Kher, Niteish Tiwari to Kangana Ranaut’s sister, Rangoli to others, a lot of B-town celebs have voiced their opinion about this Dangal actress ‘decision to part ways with Bollywood.

Now, Zaira’s last film that she shot for is Priyanka Chopra and Farhan Akhtar’s The Sky Is Pink and according to latest reports, she has opted out of the promotions of the film. “With the film eyeing an October 11 release, the makers were planning to kick off the promotions by August-end. It was evident from Zaira's Facebook post on Sunday that she has decided to severe her ties from films. In keeping with her decision, she has requested the makers to excuse her from the promotional activities,” as quoted by Mid-day.

The cast and crew of The Sky Is Pink  recently celebrated the wrap up of the film in Mumbai and Zaira had made an appearance for the same in an orange floral dress. In the film, Wasim plays motivational speaker Aisha Chaudhury, who was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis and since Zaira plays a pivotal role in the film, we are sure she would be needed to be part of the promotional campaign, however, with Zaira opting out of the promotions, it will be interesting to see what does the director, Shonali Bose, and producers of the film, have to say to it.

On Sunday, Zaira shocked everyone when she posted a note on social media announcing her exit from Bollywood. “As I had started to make sense of the things to which I dedicated my time... I realised that though I may fit here perfectly, I do not belong here."



And it’s a wrap. This movie is special to me on so many levels. Not just because @roykapurfilms and @rsvpmovies (Sid and ronnie) partnered with me on my first Hindi production.. but also took the chance on me to bring to life a character and a true story that needed to be told. @faroutakhtar you made an amazing co actor all over again with all the laughter and fun!(you were missed tonight) and my amazing @zairawasim_ and @rohitsaraf10 who I’ve made friends for life with! This was the hardest loveliest experience. Thank you @shonalibose_ for your incredibly unique vision. I’m so proud of your faith in me. Thank you so much to Our crew who worked tirelessly for 10 months to make this special piece of cinema. I love you all. See u at the pictures!!! #skyispink

This Day That Year


Priyanka Chopra ma'am should learn some acting lessons and fashion styles from Zaira Wasim I think Priyanka Chopra ma'am should take a retirement from Hollywood industry and Bollywood industry we need good actresses like Zaira Wasim she is a good actress more than Priyanka Chopra ma'am I am really sad for Zaira Wasim that she is leaving Bollywood industry good luck to Zaira Wasim for her career and life

PC should learn from this cute teenager. She is modestly dressed despite being so young. Look at PC.
May be Wasim knew the longer she stays in Bollywood, the worse is going to get. She didn’t want to end up like plastic white washed Priyanka who ended up with a toy boy just to be in the news. Good for you, Wasim girl. The future looks bright for you. Go root for higher education and be proud unlike these wannabe clowns of Bollywood.

Priyanka will be happy. The only chance to get attention for her small side kick role.

lol yup, and she's so corrupted by her own fame. shes the one that should quit

First check and find out if Chopra jonas will make herself available for the promotions.
She didn't come to India for BM and Gangajal promotions (Prakash jha was miffed with her). Now that she's shifted focus and busy with far more important things like say private photo shoots, public photo ops...the chances are that only Farhan will be there.

Like anyone would even care about this girl at the promotion of the movie.

PC aunty now will be the centre of promotions and will talk all fake & nonsense stuff asusual!Bingo
