When Raveena Tandon refused to participate in onscreen kissing sequences or wear a swimsuit in a film, she claimed she was labelled arrogant.

The actor told ANI that she used to be uncomfortable with a lot of things. Raveena shared, for instance, some dance moves. She used to remark that she was not comfortable with this step if she was uneasy. The actor wouldn't take action. Raveena refused to do any kissing scenes or wear a swimming costume, which were her "fundas." She went on to share that she was the only actor to have two rape scenes with no visible dress rips. Her clothing used to be in perfect condition.

"Mera dress phatega nahi..tum karlo rape scene agar karna hai," Raveena was labeled arrogant after saying.

Since her first movie, Patthar Ke Phool, with Salman Khan in 1991, she has been winning over hearts. In the latest podcast, Raveena discussed how she used to work in movies under her terms and conditions.

She revealed that Darr had initially come to her, and while it was not vulgar, there were some parts of the film she was not comfortable with. The actor had never worn a bathing suit back then. So she would respond by stating the same. Even Prem Qaidi, which was the first movie Karisma Kapoor was in, was offered to her at first. But even there, there was just one scene where the hero opened the zipper, exposing the strap, and Raveena found that uncomfortable.

The fourth-highest civilian honour in the nation, the Padma Shri, was recently given to the actor from Mohra. She garnered a lot of praise for her work in the wildly successful pan-Indian movie KGF, Chapter 2.

In the upcoming romantic comedy Ghudchadi, she and Sanjay Dutt will work together again on screen after a two-year break. Patna Shukla, an Arbaaz Khan production, will also include Raveena.
