Raveena Tandon is one of the most popular actresses of the 90s. She has given many hit films and acting skills has made many fall for her. Her recent web show debut with Aranyak has also been appreciated by the audience and the critics.
Raveena recently disclosed how she was replaced in a couple films due to the hero’s girlfriend’s issues. She giggled as she related how, after his lover dumped him, the same hero came back to her with a job offer.
“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 other heroines. So I lost out on 1-2 films on that account,” she told Siddharth Kannan in an interview.
She further added, “And then she pressurised another favourite hero of mine to replace me from another movie. That hero came and told me, ‘arey wo aake itna roi, itna roi ki main aap log ki purani gang hu aur aapne kaise isko lelia. Rona dhona hua uska. To maine aur director ne socha chalo theek hai, little bit of loyalty we owe to her (She came to me and cried so much, saying that she was our old gang member and asked us how dare we approach you. So, the director and me decided to cast her as a token of our loyalty to her)’.”
Raveena explained, laughing, how the male actor came full circle a few years later, “The best part was she dumped that hero after a few years and he came to me, ‘arey uski film thi yar, tu please abhi mere liye karde, wo beech me chhod ke chali gai (It was her film but please you do it for me, she has quit in between).’ Maine kaha main to tereko pahle se bolti thi ki uski fitrat hi aisi hai (I told him that I had already warned you about her nature). It was very funny actually. 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.”
