Actress Raveena Tandon talked about experiencing fat shaming when she first entered the film profession. She also addressed individuals who thought she had exaggerated the situation's reality.
Raveena Tandon opens up on being body-shamed; says, “The woman would be panned, shamed, literally, her career ruined in the magazines with nasty articles being put out about her”
Even though Raveena occasionally talked about how difficult it was for her to get work because of the way she looked, most people didn't think much of it. News agency ANI quoted her as saying, “I was plump actually. Started at 16 and a half years, and I was full of baby fat yaar... which still hasn't gone. Though I don't care now, I am being like that, I am like that, too bad!”
Recollecting the past memories, she added, “I remember some of these titles. And not only me, but some other heroines are also called that. Besides that, instead of supporting women, what they did was...firstly all these women editors would fall in love with the heroes. And what the heroes said were the last words. If he wanted to pan a woman, the woman would be panned, shamed, literally, her career ruined in the magazines with nasty articles being put out about her. There were so many untrue articles put out because some hero went and said, ‘Acha, uske bare me aab aisa likh do...’ and it would be the last word. And if there would be an apology, that would be on the last line of some other issues of the magazine, it would be written 'the story carried earlier ultimately proved not to be true'. And who will read that then? At that time the screaming headlines already made the news, right?”
Raveena Tandon discussed a variety of subjects, including body shaming and harmful gossip publications that can damage someone's career. When asked about the gossip publications from bygone ages, Raveena stated quite clearly, “90s gossip magazines were the worst. And some of those women, now I see, roaming around today carrying the women's lib badge over their heads and hearts, who were the worst enemies of women, who body-shamed women, slut shamed women and would do everything possible to bring another woman down. Today they roam around being as biggest feminists, I wonder when did that happen?”
After marrying, Raveena Tandon came to the conclusion that the viciousness of journalism in the 1990s was to blame for her extreme dissatisfaction, and she chose to take a break.
On the work front, Raveena was last seen in KGF: Chapter 2. Next, she has Ghudchadi alongside Sanjay Dutt and Arbaaz Khan’s Patna Shukla.
