She had written, "Hello everyone!! I want to just take a moment to thank each of you for the constant love and kindness you have showered me with. Y'all have been a constant source of love and strength, thank you for being there to support me through everything." "I request you to please take down my pictures from your accounts and ask other fan pages to do the same," she added.

It was in 2019 that Zaira had announced her 'disassociation' from acting, saying she was not happy with the line of work as it interfered with her faith and religion. Zaira's last film as an actor was 2019's The Sky Is Pink featuring Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Farhan Akhtar and Rohit Saraf.
