Fact-Check: Is Zaira Wasim making a comeback with The Sky Is Pink after quitting Bollywood for Islam?

The Sky Is Pink, starring Priyanka Chopra Jonas, Farhan Akhtar, Zaira Wasim and Rohit Saraf is slated to be released on 11th October. The film is directed by Shonali Bose.

Dangal actress Zaira Wasim, who ‘retired’ from Bollywood as it was taking her away from Islam, is back in the Bollywood with the film The Sky Is Pink which is slated to be released on October 11. The trailer of Priyanka Chopra, Farhan Akhtar starrer film was released on 10th September. Zaira plays the role of Priyanka Chopra and Farhan Akhtar’s daughter who is terminally ill.

Soon an image of Zaira with rest of the film cast members on a beach became viral, where many wondered if she has returned to Bollywood after quitting it for Islam. However, the image is from prior to the announcement of her ‘retirement’ from Bollywood. Zaira has been keeping away from the promotional events for the movie as well. Hence, in absence of Zaira’s involvement in film promotion ahead of its release makes it quite clear that she has indeed quit Bollywood for good.

In June, in a six-page letter posted on Instagram, Zaira had said “Bollywood took me away from Islam” and cited the interference on her religious practices as the reason for this decision. She said that she wasn’t truly happy with her line of work despite her fame and success. It was only while trying to adjust to the new lifestyle did she realized that her career had impacted her relationship with religion.

The Sky Is Pink, directed by Shonali Bose is inspired from true story and revolves around Aisha Chaudhary (Zaira Wasim) who was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis. Priyanka Chopra and Farhan Akhtar play her parents and the movie spans over 30 years highlighting their ups and downs through their lives. The film also stars Rohit Saraf in a key role.
