At the launch of Judgementall Hai Kya’s The Wakhra Song, Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut shared her two cents on the Zaira Wasim controversy. Dangal actor Zaira had recently shared a note on her social media handles stating that she has decided to quit acting as it was interfering with her belief system.
Kangana said that the most essential requirement of any religion is to empower an individual.
“Any religion should empower you. It should make you independent, confident and make you fulfil your life. If you feel your life is already fulfilled, then there is plenty of work around you. Try and help your family and friends. There is so much to do. The very fundamental requirement of religion is to empower you, not disempower you,” the Judgementall Hai Kya actor said.
Last week, Zaira Wasim had shared an official statement on her social media pages, which stated that while acting brought her a lot of love and praise, she later realised it took her away from her faith. “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 (faith). While I continued to work in an environment that consistently interfered with my imaan (faith), my relationship with my religion was threatened,” the young actor wrote.
Zaira Wasim’s decision invited mixed reactions from her Bollywood colleagues. While some like The Sky is Pink makers supported Wasim, others like Raveena Tandon criticised the actor.
