Zaira Wasim announced her disassociation from the field of acting on social media.
Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut talks about Zaira Wasim`s decision to stop acting and says religion is not to disempower.
Kangana made the statement while she spoke to the media in an inter-active session for her forthcoming film "JudgeMentall Hai Kya".
Her co-star Rajkummar Rao, producer Ekta Kapoor, writer Kanika Dhillon, choreographer Bosco Martis and director Prakash Kovelamudi were also present at the event.
Zaira of "Dangal" fame, last month took to the social media to announce her "disassociation from the field of acting" as it "consistently interfered with her imaan, and her relationship with her religion was threatened".
Asked about her views on the Kashmiri actress' decision to quit art because of her religion, Kangana said: "I think any religion should empower you and it should make you independent and confident. It should make your life fulfilling and if you think that your life is already fulfilling, then there is plenty of work to do around you.
"People should try and help their family and friends. There are so many things to do, so we should try and fulfill the environment around us. Essentially, the fundamental requirement of any religion is to empower and not to disempower you."
About her film "JudgeMentall Hai Kya", she said: "I think we have made this film very sensibly without compromising on the art quotient, so I think people who cry about being an artiste and being insensitive are just people who do not know how to handle their craft. I feel you can be considerate yet you can give artistically sophisticated films."
The movie is releasing on July 26.
