Indian filmmaker Shonali Bose extremely worried for Zaira Wasim in Kashmir

Indian actress, Zaira Wasim, who rose to fame with Aamir Khan’s Dangal, and who recently quit Bollywood, stating how the life interfered with her Muslim beliefs, is amongst one of the sufferers, who have been locked down in a curfew in Jammu & Kashmir, imposed by Indian army.

Indian filmmaker, Shonali Bose, in whose film, The Sky Is Pink, Zaira Wasim will be making her last appearance as an actress, recently took to her social media to state how much she was worried about Zaira because of the curfew in Kashmir.

Writing, how this wasn’t the India she knew, Shonali Bose stated, “#NotmyIndia. It has been two weeks since the unprecedented communication blockade of Jammu and Kashmir. My heart is heavy as the sky is dark over India’s democracy right now. My heart has always ached for the terrible human rights violations in the Valley – right from the times of the Congress government in the 90’s. The disappearances and killing of innocent youth is not new. Nor is the opening of fire on demonstrations. But this government has crossed every line with it’s draconian measures.”

Adding further, Shonali wrote that she had been extremely worried for Zaira Wasim who she had been with a day before the lockdown in Kashmir.

“On a personal level I have never known anyone before in the State. But now I have a child there. Zaira Wasim – the heart and soul of The Sky is Pink. I have known her and her family over one year – spent marvelous times with them in both Srinagar and Jammu. I was with them in Jammu just a day before this happened.”

“Zaira was very worried that something terrible was afoot because of the sudden influx of massive troops. I reassured her not dreaming something so draconian and unprecedented could be carried out. And since then I’m besides myself with worry at not being able to reach her. To give her strength at this difficult time. To wish them Eid Mubarak. I’m sure they couldn’t celebrate it. We parted with the promise to stay in touch every day. Echoing a promise she and her brother make to each other in the film in a brilliantly acted and moving scene. But I can’t reach my baby right now. #NotmyIndia,” wrote Shonali, stating how her heart had been wrenched with pain.
