Raveena Tandon too, with a series of tweets, questioned the workplace harassments and expressed her strong opinion on the issue. Raveena, in one of her tweets, questioned the celeb wives who remain silent observers, while their husbands flirt with other actresses and destroy their careers. She wrote, "What defines harassment in a workplace? The fact that many industry wives/girlfriends are silent observers or instigators, when actor husbands destroy the actresses careers after the chase and flirtation is over, have them replaced with other potential targets?".
However, social media users derived their own opinion from Raveena’s tweets and jumped to the conclusion that her tweet was hinted towards her ex-Akshay Kumar and his wife Twinkle Khanna.
