Zaira Wasim Supports Woman Eating in 'Niqab'
Zaira Wasim, who left showbiz for religious reasons in 2019, has come forward in support of a woman who eats while wearing a niqab at a wedding.
One of the social media users dropped a tweet with a picture of a woman eating at a wedding with her face covered in a niqab.
The caption on the post read: “Is this a human choice?”
In response, Zaira wrote: “Just attended a wedding. Ate exactly the same. Purely my will. Even when everyone around me kept pestering me to take off the niqab. I did not.”
“We don’t do this for you. Deal with it,” the former actor wrote.
22-year-old Zaira played some of the most glamorous and influential roles before retiring from her career. She made her debut in 2016 with the film Dangal opposite superstar Aamir Khan.
Later in 2017, she did another film with Aamir titled Secret Superstar. Both the films helped Zaira become an important part of the Indian film industry.
Before quitting, the 22-year-old actor also shared the screen with global icon Priyanka Chopra in Sky Is Pink.
According to Pinkvilla, Zaira Wasim announced her retirement in an Instagram post in 2019, writing: “This field really brought me a lot of love, support and applause, but it led me down the path of ignorance. As I quietly and unconsciously fell out of faith.
