Zaira Wasim Missing All The Glory for ‘The Sky is Pink’

Zaira Wasim is missing out on all the glory and adulation that her farewell film The Sky Is Pink  is getting from  critics  and  the audience. But the heartening part of this  very tragic situation where one  of the film’s  lead players has  opted out  reportedly  due  to pressure from fundamentalists, is that the film has been seen  by the  missing actress. Reveals  director Shonali Bose, “We  took  the  film to Jammu for  Zaira’s dubbing, and she saw the  entire  film then.”

Thereafter, Zaira decided she no longer wanted to be part of the entertainment industry or any part of the promotion of  The Sky Is Pink. As the encomiums  pour in for  the film and Zaira’s performance  the entire Sky Is Pink team wonders where Zaira is.

“They know she is in Kashmir. But beyond that there is no information on  Zaira’s whereabouts. Zaira has requested for  privacy, and  the  Sky Is Pink will respect her wishes,” says  a  source.

At age  16  Zaira made a  big impact as Aamir Khan’s headstrong wrestler-daughter in Dangal. The following year she was cast again with Aamir Khan in the latter’s home production Secret Superstar, though not as  his daughter this time. In 2019  Zaira  announced her decision to quit the entertainment  industry without even waiting for her third film The Sky Is  Pink  to release. The decision had created a huge controversy.

“This field indeed brought a lot of love, support and applause my way, but what it also did was to lead me to a path of ignorance, as I silently and unconsciously transitioned out of ‘imaan’,” she said, referring to her faith.

“While I continued to work in an environment that consistently interfered with my ‘imaan’, my relationship with my religion was threatened,” she said in simultaneous posts on her social media profiles.
