Jai Ho actor and former Bigg Boss contestant Sana Khan, who bid goodbye to the entertainment industry saying she wants to spend her life in the service of humanity and following the orders of her "creator", was back in the news again recently when she took to social media to announce her marriage with Anas Saayed.

Soon after the announcement, many on the internet began to compare Khan with another Bigg Boss contestant who quit the entertainment industry to embrace the path of spirituality, Sofia Hayat. In 2016, Hayat had become a nun, only to reveal a year later that she quit the path of spirituality.

Reacting to the comparisons, Hayat told entertainment portal SpotboyE that she is fed up with it. "What is wrong with some people. They think spirituality is all about what dress you wear! When I was a nun I did not have sex for 18 months," she said.

Further, she said she does not wear the outfit of the nun every day, but that does not make her any less spiritual. "I am more spiritual in my nudity than fully dressed, low minded and low vibrational people, do not understand this. I have not had sex in 3 years. I am still Mother Sofia and still spiritual," she was quoted as saying.

Hayat also defended Khan saying, “Leave Sana alone. She can do what she wants when she wants....You are hypocrites. This whole planet is a temple and you must respect every person on it.”
