Bollywood actresses, Karisma Kapoor and Raveena Tandon were two of the leading actresses of Bollywood during the '90s era. Both Karisma and Raveena have given several big films and enjoy a massive fan following till date. However, when the two actresses were at the peak of their careers, there was bad blood between them, and they would often hit the headlines for their catfights.
Raveena Tandon and Karisma Kapoor worked together in the film, Andaz Apna Apna, which was released in 1994. In the film, the duo played the role of best friends while Salman Khan played Karisma’s love interest. Helmed by Rajkumar Santoshi, the film is now counted among the best comedies of Indian cinema.
However, more than the success of the film, it was Raveena Tandon's shocking revelations that made it to the headlines. Once the actress had revealed that she and Karisma Kapoor didn’t talk to each other during the shooting of the film. Well, not just this, she also claimed that Salman Khan and Karisma used to gang up against her, which was quite mean, as they were all co-stars working hard for the same film.
However, in an interview with Stardust India, Karisma Kapoor addressed Raveena's claims and immediately refuted them. The then-16-year-old actress shared that Raveena stays sweet on her face and that they both share a regular working relationship. However, she added that she wasn't sure if Raveena talked ill about her behind her back. When Karisma was asked to throw some light on the issues that Raveena reportedly has with her, she added:
“How dare she say that my mother doesn’t acknowledge her? In fact, when they meet, it’s Raveena who doesn’t say hello to her. We’re all taught good manners, and we should use them. Raveena should know how to respect seniors.”
Karisma Kapoor also addressed the allegation about her and Salman Khan ganging up against Raveena Tandon and said that they have better things to do in life than ganging up against Raveena. She was quoted as saying:
“And what does Raveena mean by saying Salman and I gang up against her? Salman and I are both busy stars, and we have better things to do in life than ganging up against Raveena. I’m sure Salman will agree with me on that.”
Karisma Kapoor and Raveena Tandon had animosity with each other, and their catfight was once the talk of the town. However, when the two actresses refused to pose together at Shah Rukh Khan’s Holi party, reports claimed that the rift between them was because of Ajay Devgn. However, when Raveena Tandon was asked about the reason she did not pose with Karisma Kapoor, 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.”
Fast forward to today, both Raveena Tandon and Karisma Kapoor are cordial with each other, although they are not close friends.
