In a shocking development, Kashmiri girl Zaira Wasim, who played Aamir Khan’s daughter in blockbuster Dangal has apologised to the people if her “recent actions or those she recently met” hurt anyone.
Zaira, who recently called on Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti as a part of her film’s success, this afternoon took to Facebook to post the “apology and confession” whereby she asked people not to follow her footsteps and that she doesn’t deserve to be a role model.
Though Zaira couldn’t be contacted for comments, sources close to her said the 16-year-old felt offended by “some comments made by trollers.”
“She is basically an emotional little girl, who is equally religious minded. This post is her emotional outburst as she presumably took things to her heart,” the sources close to her told InUth.
However, it couldn’t be immediately verified if she received any threat in the militancy-hit region.
Zaira, who last week qualified her board exams for class 10, started her post with traditional Islamic greetings: “Assalamu AlaiKum We Rehmatullahi Wa Barkatahu!
This is an open confession/apology. I know that many people have been offended and displeased by my recent actions or by the people I have recently met.
I want to apologise to all those people who I’ve unintentionally hurt and I want them to know that I understand their sentiments behind it especially considering that what had happened over the past 6 months but I hope people can also understand there are certain circumstances that emerge which one cannot control and I hope people still remember that I’m a just a 16-year-old girl and I hope you treat me accordingly. I’m sorry for what I did but it was not a deliberate decision and I really hope people can forgive me.
There are few more things which are very important and I want to clear them as well. The first and foremost thing is that I am being projected as a role model for Kashmiri Youth. I want to make it very clear that I do not want anyone to follow in my footsteps or even consider me as a role model. I’m not proud of what I’m doing and I want everyone, especially the Youth to know that there are real role models out there whether they be in this time or in our history.
To even consider me as a role model would be disgracing them and their disgrace would be OUR DISGRACE! I do not wish to start an argument here, this was a just a mere confession from my end which I really wanted people to know. May Allah bless us and guide us.️”
