Zaira Wasim of the Dangal fame announced today that she as quitting Bollywood saying that she was not in peace with her choice of an acting profession as it left her in conflict with her religious goals and ideals. While many were left feeling disappointed that a talented actress like her was leaving the industry too early, no word had come from any of the Bollywood fraternity, reacting to the statement. But now, veteran actress Raveena Tandon has reacted to Zaira‘s announcement and she seems rather unhappy.
Taking to her twitter account, the actress wrote, “Doesn t matter if two film olds are ungrateful to the industry that have given them all. Just wish they d exit gracefully and keep their regressive views to themselves.” And we are quite sure this was a direct dig at the Secret Superstar actress.

Earlier today, Zaira wrote a long post saying, “Five years ago I made a decision that changed my life forever. As I stepped my foot in Bollywood, it opened doors of massive popularity for me. I started to become the prime candidate of public attention, I was projected as the gospel of the idea of success and was often identified as a role model for the youth.” She further wrote, “However, that s never something that I set out to do or become, especially with regards to my ideas of success and failure, which I had just started to explore and understand.”
Raveena later retweeted some posts where the users expressed that Zaira did not have to make this ugly aand ould have exited gracefully. One user even said that this was a subjective issue and very complicated at that.
On the work front, Zaira has done two films – Dangal and Secret Superstar and will be next seen in Shonali Bose’s The Sky Is Pink alongside Priyanka Chopra and Farhan Akhtar.
Meanwhile, let’s see if any more Bollywood personalities have anything more to say on this issue. Stay tuned to BollywoodLife for more updates.
