In June, Dangal actor Zaira Wasim announced her ‘disassociation from the field of acting’ citing religious reasons. Her sudden decision came as a shock to many and got the entire nation talking. In no time, Zaira became the centre of intense debate, with some celebs like Raveena Tandon and Anupam Kher criticising her and others backing her by calling it her choice. Of all, it was the queen-of-words Kangana Ranaut who was yet to comment on the topic and there she goes, finally sharing her thoughts.
During a recent song launch event of her upcoming film Judegementall Hai Kya, Kangana was quizzed about her opinion on Zaira opting out of showbiz. She responded saying, “It should make you fulfil your life and if you think your life is already fulfilled, there's plenty of work around you. Try and help your family and friends. Kaveri is drying up. There's so much to do. So work and try and fulfil the environment around you.” She wrapped up her statement by saying, “The essential fundamental requirement of any religion is to empower you, not disempower you.”

I know young Hindu boys who one fine day decided to leave the materialistic world and go in search of God. It is their choice and there is no wrong in it. Yes, if she (Zaira) is forced by somebody to do so, then it is a different point of discussion. But I am not aware of that. So, I cannot comment on it," he told the IANS.
Only recently, even Raveena deleted her tweet against Zaira stating that she feels sorry for the young girl. She tweeted that if Zaira was forced to dissociate herself from Bollywood by ‘radicals out of fear’, she was sympathetic to her.Read More
