Zaira Wasim had taken the whole film industry and fans by shock when she suddenly announced her disassociation from films saying she was not happy with the line of work citing that it interfered with her faith and religion. She had made her decision public and shared a long detailed note on her social media. While some head honcho’s from the industry respected her decision and showed support, some others criticized her for letting go of the golden chance.
After calling it quits from the entertainment business, Zaira often makes it to the headlines for posting her opinions over socio-political issues on social media. In her recent tweet, she has taken a dig at Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
“The question should’ve been ‘Aapko raat ko sukoon ki neend kaise aajati hai’. NOT ‘Aap aam kaise khate hai’, Zaira tweeted, and she ended the tweet with an emoji of a broken heart.
For the unaware, this tweet is a reference to PM Modi’s recent interaction with actor Akshay Kumar, and their discussion over “How do you eat mangoes?” This had even sparked a number of memes online.

Earlier, Zaira had expressed her view over Article 370 and the situation in Kashmir. She had shared her views in a lengthy post on Instagram as she wrote,
“Kashmir continues to suffer and see-saw between hope and frustration? There’s a false and uneasy semblance of calmness in place of escalating despair and sorrow? Kashmiris continue to exist and suffer in a world where it is so easy to place restrictions on our liberty.”“Why do we have to live in a world where our lives and wills are controlled, dictated and bent? Why is it so easy to have our voices silenced? Why is it so easy to curtail our freedom of expression? Why aren’t we ever allowed to voice our opinions, let alone our disapprovals, to decisions that are made contrary to our wishes? Why is it that instead of trying to see the cause of our view, our view is just condemned ruthfully?“What is so easy to curb our voices so severely? Why can we not live simple lives without always having to wrestle and remind the world of our existence? Why is that life of a Kashmiri is just about experiencing a lifetime of crisis, blockade and disturbance so abundantly that it has taken away the recognition of normalcy and harmony from the hearts and minds?”-
Meanwhile, Zaira was last seen in the film, The Sky is Pink, opposite Priyanka Chopra, and Farhan Akhtar.Based on a love story of a couple, who lose their daughter to pulmonary fibrosis, a serious immune disease, the film released in 2019.
