Thanking fans for the fame and wealth they accorded her, the former Bigg Boss 6 contestant said she is renouncing her presence in entertainment, for “it will be better if the slaves lives according to the command of his Creator and does not make wealth and fame his only goal.” She ended her declaration asking everyone to not consult her “with regards to any Showbiz work henceforth.” Khan has removed all old pictures linking to her earlier life as an actor from Instagram.

In a post on her social media handles, shared in English, Hindi, and Urdu, Khan wrote, “I declare that from today onwards, I have resolved to say goodbye to my showbiz lifestyle forever and serve humanity and follow the orders of my Creator. All brothers and sisters are requested to pray for me to Allah to accept my repentance and grant me the true ability to live in accordance with my determination of spending my life following the commandments of my Creator and in the service of humanity, and grant me perseverance in it.”
