Zaira Wasim, who played an exceptional role of gold medallist Geeta Phogat in the Aamir Khan starrer ‘Dangal’, today received an unanimous support on the social media after getting trolled for meeting Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti.
The letter penned by Zaira indicates that she had been hounded and forced to write the apology.
She wrote: “This is an open confession/apology. I know that many people have been offended and displeased by my recent actions or by the people I have recently met.”
Here is how people on Twitter came forward to support the 16-years-old actress:
I've a problem with @MehboobaMufti trying to userp other peoples success to cover up her own failures but why punish/troll people she meets?— Omar Abdullah (@OmarAbdullah) January 16, 2017

Really unfortunate that #ZairaWasim is being trolled for meeting the Chief Minister of her state. Jihadism has consumed the state completely— Sunanda Vashisht (@sunandavashisht) January 16, 2017
Shocking & unfair that 16-year-old Dangal actor Zaira Wasim forced to apologise by trolls. She met the CM, not Hafiz Saeed! #StandWithZaira— Sayoni Aiyar (@sayoniaiyar) January 16, 2017
