Kashmiri actress Zaira Wasim recently quit from films because her profession interfered with her religion. Before departing from Bollywood ‘The Sky is Pink’ was her last movie which is about to be released. However, the director of the film Shonali Bose said that he could not find actress Zaira Wasim and even could not communicate with her, reports Jagonews.com.
Ziara’s homeland is undergoing political crisis. Zaira played the lead role in Shonali Bose’s ‘The Sky is Pink’. The director of the film, Shonali Bose, said that she has been unable to contact Ziara since the abolition of Article 370 from the constitution on Kashmir.
Sharing a photo with Ziara on her Instagram recently, Sonali Bose wrote, “It has been two weeks since the unprecedented communication blockade of Jammu and Kashmir. My heart is heavy as the sky is dark over India’s democracy right now”.
Asking residents of the country how they would feel if their state is divided like Jammu and Kashmir, she wrote, “I want to ask every Indian – every Bengali, Maharashtrian, Gujarati, Tamilian et al – how would you feel if your State was split overnight and converted into a Union Territory? Leave Article 370 aside for a moment and answer that honestly”.
Shonali wrote, “For me the shock and anger at this unconstitutional act is laced with sorrow at how our own people must be feeling in this part of our country. Feelings we can only imagine – as there is still a blackout!”
She also wrote “I have known her and her family over one year – spent marvelous times with them in both Srinagar and Jammu. I was with them in Jammu just a day before this happened. Zaira was very worried that something terrible was afoot because of the sudden influx of massive troops.”
