Zaira Wasim of Dangal, impressed everybody with her stellar performance in the film. She has been caught up in a controversy over her meeting with Mehbooba Mufti, the Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir on the backdrop of the uneasiness going on in the valley.
Zaira posted an apology for unintentionally hurting people after her meeting with Mehbooba Mufti. She then deleted the post after being trolled on social networking sites. She again posted this time to ask people to calm down but deleted this post as well.
Zaira Wasim then wrote an open letter apologizing if she or her words offended anyone. Here is what she wrote-
After deleting this post, Zaira came up with another post stating that she has not been forced by anyone into anything. The same was also deleted after some time.
Read the another post by Zaira Wasim-
Zaira got support from many including her mentor and Dangal co-star, Aamir Khan. Anupam Kher also tweeted and showed his support for Zaira. Many other notable personalities too showed their support for Zaira either by tweeting or by posting on facebook.
I think it is her freedom & breathing space which has been gagged by the extremists by terrorising her to write this sad apology letter. https://t.co/U9uGZ9Ykht

People do not even realize for once and dampen the image of a person just to showcase their false faiths and agendas. The same thing happened with Zaira Wasim. Zaira at 16 has seen such a plight for the first time and we hope that she comes out of this soon and impresses everybody with her work like she did in Dangal.
