Raveena Tandon and Salman Khan are two actors from the 1990s and 2000s who made us fall in love with them through their on-screen performances. Raveena made her Bollywood debut in the 1991 film Patthar Ke Phool, opposite Salman Khan. But did you know that Khan was done with her after this collaboration and stated that he would not work with her again?
Raveena Tandon, in a recent interview revealed that she and Salman were both brats on the sets of her debut film, always fighting with each other.
While talking to Pinkvilla, Raveena Tandon said, “We were like two kids in a class who just wanted to fight over everything. I was 16 and a half and Salman must have been 23. We were both brats. Salman and I are of the same nature-wise, we were almost brought up in the same house as Salim’s uncle and my dad used to work together. It was like we were continuing our fights from home. We fought throughout the film and Salman said ‘I’m not going to work with her’, and then we did Andaaz Apna Apna.”
Anant Balani directed and Salim Khan wrote Patthar Ke Phool, which was released in 1991. Salman Khan played a cop who falls in love with Raveena Tandon’s character, a gangster’s daughter, in the film. Andaaz Apna Apna, their next collaboration, was directed by Rajkumar Santoshi and released in 1994. Aamir Khan, Karishma Kapoor, Paresh Rawal, and Shakti Kapoor also starred in the film alongside Khan and Tandon. While the picture did not perform well upon its initial release, it has since become a cult classic.
