Raveena Tandon is an actress who has a happy family life but chose to return to films. She will be seen in ‘Shab’ next and also in ‘Maatr’. She has said that she has offers made to her all the time but she’s not interested in getting back into the rat race.
“I’m not in the career building phase, my family is a happy one not dysfunctional. I just want to have fun with my kids and experiment with roles I haven’t tried before. I have had releases back-to-back on Fridays and shot 20 hours a day, now my priorities are different. I’m being realistic and not insecure about the new faces,” said Tandon to TOI.
‘Maatr’ focuses on justice for women who suffer from violence, abuse and rape. Tandon spoke about the film, “Rapes happen so often that people now refer to them casually. Take the case of Jyoti Pandey aka Nirbhaya. The 17-year-old juvenile was old enough to rape her but not old enough to be punished. He was rehabilitated instead. Our film talks about our attitude to such cases. I was in tears after reading the script and at times, before the shots as well, because I knew what we were going to film. It’s being shot in Delhi and Haryana”.
