Zaira is a role model for children across the world: Aamir Khan.

A day after Dangal actor Zaira Wasim took to social media to post an apology/confession and said she is nobody’s role model, her co-star and mentor Aamir Khan has posted his reaction to the post. Zaira had later deleted the tweet and asked people not to blow the matter out of proportion. Aamir wrote on social media, “I want you to know we are all with you… kids like you are a role model for kids not only in India, but across the world. You certainly are a role model for me.”
Zaira, who potrayed the role of a younger Geeta Phogat in the Dangal Movie, was reportedly threatened and bullied on social media after acting in Dangal and meeting Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti. While the teenaged actor didn’t say in as many words why she was apologising, she hinted that it had to do with “people she had met.”

In response, Aamir wrote, “I have read Zaira’s statement, and I can understand and imagine what lead her to make the statement. Zaira, I want you to know that we are all with you. The beauty is that bright, young, talented, hardworking, respectful, caring and courageous kids like you are a role model for kids not only in India, but across the world. You certainly are a role model for me! May god bless you. Love. Aamir. PS: I appeal to everyone to now leave her alone and respect the fact that she is just a 16 year old girl trying her best to deal with life.”
