About Zaira Wasim

Zaira Wasim: The Rising Star of Indian Cinema

At just 20 years old, Zaira Wasim has already made a name for herself in the Indian film industry. Born on October 23, 2000, in Srinagar, Jammu and Kashmir, Zaira started her acting career at the age of 16 with the critically acclaimed film "Dangal" (2016), in which she played the younger version of wrestler Geeta Phogat.

Since then, Zaira has starred in several other successful films, including "Secret Superstar" (2017) and "The Sky Is Pink" (2019), earning praise for her nuanced performances and natural acting style. Her portrayal of a young Muslim girl who dreams of becoming a singer in "Secret Superstar" won her the National Film Award for Best Supporting Actress in 2018.

Despite her success, Zaira has also faced controversy and criticism for her decision to quit acting in 2019, citing religious reasons. She wrote in a social media post that acting had "damaged her relationship with Allah" and that she wanted to focus on her faith.

Zaira's decision sparked a debate about freedom of choice and religious identity in India, with some praising her for standing up for her beliefs and others criticizing her for giving in to pressure from conservative groups.

Regardless of the controversy, Zaira remains a talented and promising young actress, with a bright future ahead of her. She has already made a significant impact on Indian cinema and is sure to continue to do so in the years to come.
