LAHORE: Pakistani actor Aisha Khan in a post on social media announced that she has “decided to bid farewell to our wonderful media industry.” While the actor did not specify the reasons behind her decision, she spoke at length about the industry and how it has shaped her into the person she is.
“I am bowing out with immense satisfaction and a lot of pride to move on to the next phase of my life,” she wrote before thanking everyone for their constant support and encouragement.
“At this point, I’d like to thank everyone who I have worked with in the industry and people outside of it especially my fans and well-wishers who have supported me unconditionally and appreciated my work. I have grown and developed and met many wonderful people in this industry to whom I’m ever so grateful. I have always tried to keep my professional and personal life separate and request everyone to understand.”
“I would also like to let my colleagues and friends know about the limitations that I might have had in accepting new projects since 2016 out of which a few scripts stayed with me for a long time. My apologies. As I move on in life to discover how fate unfolds, I would request my well-wishers to remember me and my parents in their prayers,” she concluded.
