Raveena Tandon's Fight With Karisma Kapoor And Salman Khan: Bhaijaan's Big Vow To Losing Four Films

Raveena Tandon was one of the highest-paid actresses in the 90s at a time when Bollywood was filled with many exceptionally talented divas. The actress made her acting debut back in 1991 with the film, Patthar Ke Phool and even after three long decades, she continues to break headlines with her acting performances. Raveena received a lot of love for playing the Prime Minister of India, 'Ramika Sen' in the blockbuster film, K.G.F: Chapter 2. Despite being at the age of 51, she continues to make her mark as an actress in Bollywood.

Raveena Tandon is also one of the few stars of the 90s, who have managed to strike a chord with the new-age entertainment platform, OTT. The actress made her OTT debut with the web series, Aranyak and turned heads in 2024 with her character, 'Indrani Kothari' in the web series, Karmaa Calling.

Raveena Tandon is one of the most sought-after actresses in Bollywood, as she rarely indulged in controversies. Even at the peak of her career, she never let success sit on top of her head, which is one major factor behind her longevity as an actor. For the unversed, Raveena received the National Award for Best Actress for her work in the film, Daman: A Victim of Marital Violence. Notably, in 2023, she was bestowed with the prestigious Padma Shri award for her contribution to Indian cinema.

Raveena Tandon opens up about her fight with Salman Khan

Everyone is aware of Raveena Tandon's illustrious acting career in Bollywood, but what few people don't know about is her fight with Salman Khan. Yes! You read it right. The actress renowned for her calm and composed nature once had a fallout with Bollywood superstar Salman Khan. In an old interview with Pinkvilla, Raveena talked about her bond with Salman and revealed that they used to fight a lot.

Opening up about her fight with Salman Khan, Raveena Tandon revealed that they both were quite young at that time, and things resolved when they grew up. The actress revealed that Salman's father, Salim Khan and her daddy, Ravi Tandon used to work together, and because of this, they got to know each other. The actress admitted that she and Salman were 'brats' back in those days. Interestingly, Raveena and Salman worked together in the actress' debut film, Patthar Ke Phool, which was released in 1991.

After working with Raveen Tandon in Patthar Ke Phool, Salman Khan had vowed never to work with her again. The actor kept his vow for the next two years, but in 1994, he joined hands with Raveena Tandon in their film, Andaz Apna Apna. The film underperformed at the box office back in that time but is now considered as a 'cult classic'. Opening up about her 'love-hate' bond with Salman, Raveena shared:

"I was 16 and a half and Salman must have been 23. We were both brats. Salman and I are of the same nature-wise, we were almost brought up in the same house as Salim uncle and my dad used to work together. It was like we were continuing our fights from home. We fought throughout the film and Salman said 'I'm not going to work with her', and then we did Andaaz Apna Apna'."

Raveena Tandon and Karisma Kapoor's catfight, 'She had me removed from four films'

Raveena Tandon's fight with Salman Khan was quite childish, but her career's only major spat was with timeless beauty, Karisma Kapoor. Once, in a conversation with IBTimes, she opened up about her differences with Karisma and accused the latter of removing her from four films due to her connections in the film industry. However, despite all the chaos and differences between the two actresses, Raveena and Karisma always behaved professionally. The duo worked together in Andaz Apna Apna, and although they didn't talk during the film's entire shooting, they never let it transcend on the big screen. Sharing her thoughts on her ugly spat with Karisma, Raveena said:

"I won't name the heroine, but because she was insecure she had me removed from four films. As a matter of fact, I was to do one of the films with her. She was closer to the producer and the hero apparently. So these things do happen, but I'm not into playing these sort of games."

Raveena Tandon on posing with Karisma Kapoor, 'I would rather pose with a broomstick'

In another interview with Pinkvilla, Raveena Tandon opened up about her decision not to pose with Karisma Kapoor. Revealing the reason behind it, Raveena gave a controversial answer that widened the differences between her and Karisma. The actress clearly stated that she would pose with a broomstick if needed. Raveena further added that she would work with Karisma because she's a professional and doesn't like entertaining stupid ego problems. She said:

"It doesn't make me a superstar if I pose with a Karisma Kapoor today. She doesn't feature in my life in any which way. I'm a professional, I don't care. I would pose with a broomstick if need be. Karisma and I are not the best of friends. Ditto with Ajay. Professionally I'm ready to work with Ajay or Karisma. Where work is concerned I don't bother about these stupid ego problems."

However, as of now, Raveena Tandon shares a close bond with Salman Khan. We saw them entertaining the audiences when Raveena was invited as a special guest on Salman Khan's show, Bigg Boss 17. Talking about Raveena and Karisma's bond, they are also on talking terms as their kids are friends. In a conversation with ETimes, Raveena was the one, who confirmed that all was well between her and Karisma. The actress also added that she and Karisma also hang out together, and all that happened in the past is in the past now.
