These comments by Gautam Gambhir in support of Dangal actress Zaira Wasim proves that the star batsman has a ‘Heart of Gold’

Posted On

Indian star batsman Gautam Gambhir on Tuesday came out in support of Zaira Wasim, who played the role of young Geeta Phogat in recently released Bollywood movie Dangal– which is a biopic on her wrestling coach and father Mahavir Singh Phogat.

Gambhir is disgusted at the way trolls forced 16-year-old actress to apologise for meeting Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Mehbooba Mufti.

I hope people remember that I’m a just a 16-year-old girl and I hope you treat me accordingly. I’m sorry for what I did but it was not a deliberate decision and I really hope people can forgive me,” Zaira wrote in her apology.

Gambhir, who is known to take a strong stand on social issues, took to his Twitter account and commented in support of Zaira through a series of tweets.

The left-hander also asked whether someone would do the same to the powerful Khan troika from Bollywood.

Here are Gautam Gambhir’s comments in support of Zaira Wasim on Twitter:

“Calling @zairawasim “unislamic” for acting in Dangal or meeting @MehboobaMufti is naked suppression. Ashamed dat she had 2 apologise.

To me whole @zairawasim episode smells of sexual bias. Can someone say d same thing 2 @aamir_khan @BeingSalmanKhan @iamsrk?”.

“Men will be men. Insecure 2 see a girl like @zairawasim get wings. Sadly we think “Maahri Choriyan AAJ B Choron se kum hain.” @aamir_khan.”
