The actress further adds,
“May God give each of us the strength to follow our dreams. Stop targeting young women in India. Stop religious intolerance. Stop dictating to Indians. India is unique and we must protect our secular fabric. Stop this divide and rule. Focus on a better world.”
She also shared her thoughts about Zaira Wasim’s exit from the industry.
Nafisa openly supported Zaira’s decision – who has been trending because of her sudden decision of quitting Bollywood as she felt it affected her relationship with her religion – and posted:
“This is the new me…older, grey and feeling positive. I saw myself when I was 20 and I just felt for young actor Zaira Wasim. I thought let me put this message out that work is something which is your choice, it is your freedom, your independent right.”
She further added,
“There are many pressures young people are surrounded by… but if you have a choice, make sure you think and make the right choice. Because I always look back and say why did I give in, why did I listen to my father, I should have listened to myself.”
