“The experience has been life-changing,” Zaira said. “I was a normal teenager with a lot of anxiety but have been able to overcome that in the past six months,” she told Hindustan Times.
“Like other Kashmiri parents, mine were concerned about what the people would say. But my aunt handled the situation well.”
“I got a call for the role in April. It was a big decision for the family as Bollywood is not really looked up to in our society.”
“I have grown up aimless and will continue to be like that,” she says. “I am just going with the flow and embracing whatever comes to me, good or bad.”
