Mumbai: Zaira Wasim, who played the younger Geeta Phogat in the critical and commercial blockbuster ‘Dangal,’ has written an open letter, reacting to the controversy surrounding her recent meeting with Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir, Mehbooba Mufti. The 16-year-old Kashmiri actress had come in for a lot of backlash, post her meeting with the CM, so much so that she ended up apologising for unintentionally hurting people. She also ended up playing down her much acclaimed performance in 'Dangal,' saying that she is ‘not proud of it'.
