Actress Zaira Wasim, who made her acting debut with Aamir Khan's much-acclaimed 'Dangal' as Geeta Phogat, received rave reviews for her performance in Nitesh Tiwari directed 2015 film. The talented actress recently shocked her fans by announcing that she is bidding goodbye to her film career as she is not happy with her current line of work, which has silently and unconsciously transitioned her "out of Imaan". Her decision is getting a mixed response from other Bollywood celebs. While some supported her decision of quitting films, others questioned it.
