Saqib Khan, an Indian actor and model, has announced quitting showbiz and said he will not take up any acting and modelling projects in future. 

He said, “It’s not that I didn’t have work or I gave up.” “I had good projects,” he elaborated. 

The model-turned-actor said he bade farewell to the industry because he had no peace in his life. “I was going to stray. I used to offer prayers but something was still lacking, and it was peace and accountability to Allah,” he wrote in a social media post. A lawyer by profession, Saqib rose to fame after he appeared on MTV Roadies. 

Indian actors Zaira Wasim and Sana Khan are too known for quitting films due to religious reasons in recent years.
