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.”
