Indian actress Sana Khan, of Big Boss fame, has decided to quit Bollywood and follow the path of Islam in order to serve humanity, the actress announced last week.
The actress even removed her photos from social media accounts following the announcement. The statement follows her break-up with Indian dancer Melvin Louis earlier this year.
“Today I am talking to you standing at a crucial juncture of 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,” Khan wrote on social media.
The actress released the messages in Hindi, Urdu and English for her followers. The actress thanked her fans and followers for supporting her throughout her career.
“But for a few days now, I have been possessed of the realization that: Is the real purpose of man’s coming into this world only to chase wealth and fame?” the actress added in her post.
“Isn’t it a part of his/her duty to spend his/her life in the service of those who are needy and helpless? Shouldn’t a person think that he/she could die at any moment? And what will happen to him after he/she is no more? I have been searching for answers to these two questions for a long period of time, especially the second question as to what will happen to me after my death?” she said in her post.
Earlier, actress Zaira Waseem also quit the entertainment industry on religious grounds. With numerous Muslim celebrities performing in Bollywood for decades, it is unprecedented for any Muslim celebrity to forsake the career in the film industry on religious grounds.
