Zaira Wasim’s apology on Facebook has left everyone shocked. The Dangal girl was ostensibly forced to say sorry for meeting Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti. Even as people questioned if Dangal girl Zaira Wasim was forced to apologise on social media after getting threats, support poured in for the 16-year-old actor.


Zaira had earlier taken to social media to post an ‘apology/confession’ saying she is not a role model and should not be seen as one. The abject note said, “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.”

Also mentioning what has happed in J&K in the last six months, the teenager who has grown up there wrote, “…I understand the sentiments behind it especially considering that what had happened over the past 6 months.”

Here is Zaira’s second latest post.  She later deleted this too.

Regarding my last post, I have no idea why this has become such a big issue. I just wanted to make sure that I did not hurt anyone’s feelings and all of a sudden it has been turned into national news. Again and again I am telling people that I have not been forced into anything by anyone. This was post was not meant against anyone, just wanted to make sure that people were not hurt by what I was doing. From media to everyone else, please don’t blow this out of proportion. Neither was I forced nor am I against anyone. Hopefully this post just stops this once and for all.


People stood in support for her meeting with CM Mehbooba Mufti

Zaira’s defence came from Geeta Phogat whom the actor essayed in Dangal. Talking to ANI, Geeta said, “She is a very good human being in real life too. If anything, Zaira Wasim is an excellent role model for the entire country. She needn’t apologise for anything.”

Geeta Phogat’s sister Babita Phogat also defend Zaira by saying they have also fought against such society before they become wrestlers. She must not fear as nation is with her.

Omar Abdullah also tweeted in her favour. “A 16-year-old shouldn’t be forced to apologise and that too allegedly for meeting Mehbooba Mufti. What are we coming to,” he wrote. He went on to say in another tweet, “I’ve a problem with @MehboobaMufti trying to userp other peoples success to cover up her own failures but why punish/troll people she meets?”

Veteran lyricist and writer Javed Akhtar also stand in her support

Who were these sick trolls? 

It appears that most of the trolls were either from Kashmir separatists or Pakistanis.
