Zaira Wasim's decision of quitting Bollywood for religion had sparked a nation-wide debate. While many supported her, some tried to dig into the real reason behind her huge step. It was later being reported that the Dangal actress was subjected to religious oppression. In her Facebook post, she had said that the film industry had damaged her relationship with Allah, but her untimely exit from the industry has put The Sky Is Pink producers in a tight spot, according to SKJ Bollywood News.

The report had stated that though the makers of the film have shown their support for Zaira, the actress won't be able to promote their upcoming film which left the makers of the film in a difficult situation. But it appears to be just false rumours.

The producers of The Sky Is Pink denied these rumours. "Zaira is an exceptional artiste and we are lucky to have had her play Aisha Chaudhury in our film, THE SKY IS PINK. She has been a complete professional all through the shoot of the film, which concluded earlier this month. This is a purely personal decision, which she has taken after much thought and we will be supportive of her in every way - now and always," the producer stated in a statement.

The Sky Is Pink is a film based on the life of Aisha Chaudhary, who was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis, and her parents. Zaira Wasim is playing Aisha Chaudhary in the film, while Priyanka Chopra, Farhan Akhtar and Rohit Suresh Saraf essay important roles. Directed by Shonali Bose, the movie is scheduled for worldwide release on October 11.

After Zaira's exit from Bollywood, reports have started making the rounds that the 18-year-old actress may appear in Salman Khan hosted show Bigg Boss 13. However, there's no official confirmation on the same.
