Dangal actress Zaira Wasim requests fan pages to remove all her pictures; says, ‘I’m trying to start a new chapter in my life’

Zaira Wasim, the Kashmiri girl who became an overnight star after her stunning debut in Aamir Khan’s Bollywood blockbuster Dangal, had announced last year in June that she has decided to quit her promising career in Bollywood citing religious reasons. Her announcement was received with mixed reactions by the industry. And now, Zaira has requested her fan pages to delete all her pictures and stop sharing them since she is trying to start a new chapter in her life.

“Hello everyone!! I want to just take a moment to thank each of you for the constant love and kindness you have showered me with. Y’all have been a constant source of love and strength, thank you for being there to support me through everything. It is because of this care and consideration that y’all have always shown I have a little favour to ask from all of you. I request you to please take down my pictures from your accounts and ask other fan pages to do the same,” Zaira wrote on Instagram.

She continued, “It’s obviously IMPOSSIBLE to get them off the Internet but the least I can do is request your pages not to continue sharing them. I hope you could help and support me through this just like you’ve supported me through everything. I’m trying to start a new chapter in my life and I could really benefit from your cooperation—(like a lot!!) Thank you for being a part of my journey. May Allah reward you abundantly. Forever grateful. Love and regards, Zaira Wasim.”

In May, Zaira had deleted her Twitter and Instagram accounts after being heavily trolled for quoting from the Quran while talking about locust attacks.

“So We sent upon them the flood and locusts and lice and frogs and blood: Signs openly self explained: but they were steeped in arrogance — a people given to sin. –Qur’an 7:133,” Zaira had tweeted.

Soon, she started receiving hateful comments from netizens who interpreted her post as a justification of the locust attacks. They felt that Zaira was suggesting that the incident is God’s way of expressing wrath.

Shortly after being deluged with such comments, Zaira Wasim deleted her Twitter and Instagram accounts. However, a section of netizens continued to attack Zaira on her Facebook page, where she had put up the same post.
