After Popular actress Liz Anjorin has recently surprised her fans when photos of her on Muslim Pilgrimage to Mecca surfaced online as she has recently converted to Islam, many fans and colleagues wondered why she took the decision but she has come out to explain her reasons behind the decision.

She also dropped the name Elizabeth and changed it for Aisha, in light with her new religion. Liz has finally revealed the truth, as she tells City People

"It happened in a miraculous way which I have been expecting for long, not that I woke up yesterday and decided to change my religion. By birth, I was half Muslim and half Christian.

"My father was Christian while my mum was Muslim. Growing up I went to church because of my father. I didn't have a choice at the time but I have always had interest in Islam so immediately my father died I switched over to my mum's religion.

"It is a religion I love so much. Also Aisha is now my official name though Liz is still my name and I will continue to use the name to do movies.

We wish her goodluck in her new found faith
