Another Indian actress has announced her decision to quit entertainment industry, citing religious reasons and donning hijab.
She has just recently got married to Imran Qureshi.
Actress Sabina Jat, known for playing funny characters, took the decision a few months ago saying she wanted to make a distance from this industry to fulfill her religious purpose.
“Well, it has been a beautiful journey and I am quite liking my post-marriage life. I’ve known Imran for a while now and was in touch with his family as well and thus there’s already a connect which makes me feel at home,” she told India Forums.
Speaking about her husband, Sabina said he was impressed about her decision to quit the entertainment industry.
“When he learned that I quit the industry, he was even more impressed. My thoughts inspired him as well and he too decided to quit the industry,” Sabina said.
Turning to Religion
Over the past years, several Bollywood actresses have abandoned entertainment industry, either for converting to Islam or taking the decision to be more religious.
Last August, actress Sanam Chaudhry became the latest actress to take a similar decision, announcing on her birthday that she has taken a step back from her career and ‘turned towards Allah’.
Earlier this year, Pakistani actress Humaima Malik appeared donning hijab in a post on social media in March 2021, praying that she would be able to wear in for the rest of her life.
In October last year, Indian actress Sana Khan quitted Bollywood and entertainment industry to “serve humanity and follow the order of my Creator.”
