Zaira Wasim, the Kashmiri girl who became famous overnight after her debut in Aamir Khan's Bollywood blockbuster Dangal, recently sent ripples across the film fraternity after she revealed that she has decided to say goodbye to her film career as "relationship with my religion threatened". In a detailed post on her Facebook page, the 18-year-old cited religious reasons for her decision to quit her promising career in Bollywood. Ever since then, several film personalities have called out her decision while some requested everyone to let her be.
Now according to a report in an entertainment portal, Zaira has been approached to feature as a contestant on Salman Khan-hosted Bigg Boss 13, which is tentatively set to premiere on September 29. "Bigg Boss on Colors always picks controversial figures as inmates, and of late, there is no bigger talking point than her", a source told the website, further adding, "If Zaira, who has just wrapped up the shoot of The Sky Is Pink, does sign on the dotted line, it would be interesting to hear what she says in the house about her quitting films due to religious reasons." Well, rightly so!
Meanwhile, the channel spokesperson has refused to comment on the reports. This time, with Bigg Boss 13, the fans can expect changes in the show's format as only celebrity contestants will be roped in. The 13th season of the controversial show might also get a new location for shooting, according to reports.
For the unversed, Zaira was also seen in Secret Superstar and has just wrapped up Shonali Bose's The Sky Is Pink, co-starring Priyanka Chopra and Farhan Akhtar.
