Raveena Tandon takes a dig at Zaira Wasim
MUMBAI: Indian actress Raveena Tandon Sunday slammed Zaira Wasim after she announced her decision to quit Bollywood career over religion.
“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,” Raveena tweeted.
She later clarified that she understood quitting Bollywood was Zaira’s personal choice but she should not be “demeaning” the Indian film industry for everyone else.
“I standby and love my industry,all the opportunities it gives to everyone. Exit is your choice,reason,by all means.Just do not demean it for everyone else.The industry where all work shoulder to shoulder,no differences,caste,religion or where you come from. #Respect #indianfilms.”
Zaira rose to fame with her debut in Aamir Khan’s film Dangal (2016). For her spectacular and nuanced performance, she won a number of awards including a Filmfare Award and a National Film Award–National Child Award for Exceptional Achievement by Ram Nath Kovind in 2017.
The child actress again proved her acting skills when she took up the lead role in Secret Superstar.
