“Never liked preaching,” the Ho Mann Jahaan star penned, adding, “But it’s okay to hope for introspection in the face of so many challenges to our humanity. Many of our beliefs become justifications to stop listening or to forget that we are often not better than the person/people we are belittling or criticising. One has to be open to their own flaws if we’re going to make a better future. We have to treat each other better and with more respect. Check yourself. Be happy.”
Zhalay, too, shared a detailed note on what we should do this Independence Day. “On this 14th of August I am thankful to be alive and breathing, Housed and working, loved and with loved ones, speaking and not silenced! I do question though the freedom we might not have and can work towards achieving,” she penned.
