Nafisa Ali Sodhi, who acted in Bollywood films like Junoon (1979), Major Saab (1998), Bewafaa (2005), Life In A… Metro (2007) and Yamla Pagla Deewana (2010), is a cancer survivor. The veteran actress is now in search of a job in the Indian film industry.

Nafisa is a survivor of Ovarian Cancer. She took to social media announcing that she is on the lookout for an elegant role in Indian cinema like Neena Gupta – who also searched for jobs through social media.

Nafisa shared her portfolio photo of her bald look on Facebook and Twitter to show how elegantly and confidently she embraces her weaknesses.

Her post on Facebook read:

“Warrior me at 62. I am ready to work as I am now a cancer warrior”

On Instagram, she posted:

“I am Nafisa Ali Sodhi and I would like an elegant role to portray in Indian cinema. So looking for a perfect script as a senior actor. I need to work to express my emotions. I will not be dictated to”

The actress further adds,

“May God give each of us the strength to follow our dreams. Stop targeting young women in India. Stop religious intolerance. Stop dictating to Indians. India is unique and we must protect our secular fabric. Stop this divide and rule. Focus on a better world,”

Nafisa openly supported Zaira Wasim’s decision – who has been trending because of her sudden decision of quitting Bollywood as she felt it affected her relationship with her religion – and posted:

“This is the new me…older, grey and feeling positive. I saw myself when I was 20 and I just felt for young actor Zaira Wasim. I thought let me put this message out that work is something which is your choice, it is your freedom, your independent right”

She further added,

“There are many pressures young people are surrounded by… but if you have a choice, make sure you think and make the right choice. Because I always look back and say why did I give in, why did I listen to my father, I should have listened to myself.”
