Zaira Wasim, the Kashmiri girl who became famous overnight after her superb debut in Aamir Khan's Bollywood blockbuster Dangal on Sunday said she has decided to say goodbye to her film career as "relationship with her religion threatened". In a detailed post on social media, the 18-year-old cited religious reasons for her decision to quit her promising career in Bollywood.
On Monday, reports of her manager Tuhin Mishra saying that her account was hacked and she was not the one who posted the letter went viral. But soon after, Tuhin clarified that they did not say her account was hacked. Tuhin Mishra told ANI, "We have never said that her account was hacked. We just said that we would definitely like to know what has happened. And the post was done by her."
