Zaira to not promote her next, 'The Sky Is Pink'?
Dangal star Zaira Wasim left all shocked after she announced her decision to quit acting, as her "relationship with religion was threatened." Now, reports suggest that she has denied promoting her upcoming movie, The Sky Is Pink, also starring Priyanka Chopra and Farhan Akhtar. "In keeping with her decision, she has requested the makers to excuse her from promotional activities," a source stated.
The source told Mid-Day, "While she was a thorough professional throughout the shoot, she is now firm in her resolve to not be associated with movies in any capacity. The team, including director Shonali Bose, have been informed of her decision."
For the uninitiated, the National Award winning actress took to social media to announce her retirement from acting. Explaining her reasons to quit Bollywood, she stated that she had a feeling of non-belonging in showbiz. "As I complete 5 years today, I want to confess that I am not truly happy with this identity, i.e, my line of work," Zaira wrote on social media.
Meanwhile, this decision of Zaira has left Bollywood divided, but the producers of The Sky Is Pink have supported the young actress' choice. In a statement released by the producers, they stated, "Zaira is an exceptional artiste and we are lucky to have had her play Aisha Chaudhury in our film. This is a purely personal decision and we will be supportive".
