Raveena Tandon On Being Replaced In Some Films, Says, The Hero's Girlfriend Was Insecure Of Her

Bollywood actress, Raveena Tandon rules millions of hearts with her stellar performances, starting from the 90s era, till today. She had become an overnight sensation with the 1994 film, Mohra, and since then, there was no looking back for the talented actress. Even today, the actress never fails to impress people with her endearing personality and fashion statements. She had married her dream man, Anil Thandani, in February 2004.

For the unversed, Raveena had adopted her cousin's daughters, Pooja and Chhaya in 1995. Then she had welcomed her biological kids from her marriage with Anil Thadani, a daughter, Rasha Thadani, in 2005 and a son, Ranbirvardhan Thadani, in 2008. She keeps on sharing snippets from her life on her social media handle.

In an interview with Siddharth Kannan, Raveena Tandon opened up on how she was replaced in a few films, and the reason was the hero's girlfriend. She revealed that she also had lost a few films due to this and said:

"I was replaced intentionally because this girl did not like me, was insecure about me. She was dating a hero at that time and forced him to replace me because we were a hit pair. Forced him to replace with me with other heroines. So I lost out on 1-2 films on that account," 

Raveena revealed how the hero's girlfriend insisted the hero to replace her with some other heroine. She added: 

"And then she pressurised another favourite hero of mine to replace me from another movie. And apparently that hero came and told me, 'arey who make itna ROI, itna ROI ki main aap log ki purani gang hu aur aapne Kaise isko Lelia. Rona dhona Hua uska. To Maine our director ne Socha Chalo theek hai, little bit of loyalty we owe to her'."

Raveena further added the best part of the whole experience was when the same hero would come back to her and offered her work after getting dumped by his girlfriend, who once pressurized him to replace Raveena, had left a film shoot in the middle. Raveena said:

"The best part was thode saalo ke baad she dumped that hero and he came to me, 'are uski film this yar, tu please Abhi mere liye karde, wo beech me chod ke Chali gai.' Maine kaha ‘main to tereko pahle se bolti thi ki uski fitrat hi aisi hai.’ It was very funny actually. But it didn't make a difference to me because to a certain extent, I do believe that there is a certain path your destiny has to follow." 


In a conversation with Tweak India, Raveena Tandon had shared ten unknown things about herself. She had opened up about the one condition that she had put forward before her husband, Anil Thadani, before tying the knot with him. She had said:

"I think when you've kind of made up your mind and when there's a will, of course if you have a certain stable backing from your family, I think things can be easier. Yes, there were moments where people always thought that I'm taking on excess baggage because I was not settled well yet, but my mantra was always – if someone had to love me, they had to love me. I come as a package deal – they have to love me, my girls, my dogs and my family."


On the work front, Raveena Tandon will be next seen in the film, KGF: Chapter 2.
