It was almost a year ago when Zaira Wasim, the young teenager who had made her debut with Dangal, announced that she is quitting her acting career as it conflicted with her religious beliefs. And yesterday, Sana Khan, the popular face of the small screen industry, shared that she is also bidding adieu to the glamorous world of showbiz.
A former contestant on Bigg Boss, announced late on Thursday (October 9) night that she is quitting the entertainment industry. She shared a lengthy post about it on Instagram and even requested everyone not to consult her with any work related to showbiz.
In a long note posted on Instagram, she declared that she is saying goodbye to her showbiz lifestyle to serve humanity and follow a religious path. The actress also removed some of her photos and dance videos from her Instagram page.
Sana’s IG Note
In her note, Sana wrote, “I am at an important juncture in my life. For years, I have been living the Showbiz (Film Industry) life, and during this time I have been blessed with all kinds of fame, honour and wealth from my fans for which I am grateful to them. But, for the last few days, a thought has kept me occupied. I have been wondering, does one take birth only to earn wealth and fame for oneself? Isn’t it a moral responsibility of humans to serve or support those who are helpless or needy? Shouldn’t people think about what will happen to them in the after-life since one can die at any given time?”
“I declare that from today onwards, I have resolved to say goodbye to my showbiz lifestyle forever and serve humanity and follow the orders of my Creator. All brothers and sisters are requested to pray for me to Allah to accept my repentance and grant me the true ability to live in accordance with my determination of spending my life following the commandments of my Creator and in the service of humanity, and grant me perseverance in to,” she announced on Instagram.
