Raveena Tandon turns a year older on October 26, we have heard that there was going to be a lavish joint birthday bash with Asin was being planned.
Another Bollywood actress, Asin shares her birthday with Raveena. And the two beautiful actresses were plannning to do a pool party for weeks. But unfortunately, just before the D-Day, Raveena decided to cancel the party.
Sighing deeply Raveena said, “Asin and I are very close friends. And we share the same birthday. So we were planning a party together where we wanted to invite all our friends from the film fraternity. Sadly I just can’t make it to the party. I’ve been in and out of Mumbai lately with no time for my family. My kids threatened to disown me if I don’t stay home for my birthday at least.”
With a deeply regretful from the heart, Raveena further revealed, “I was so looking forward to it. But now Asin would have the party on her own. I will just drop in to wish Asin. The rest of the evening would be spent with my husband, my parents, in-laws and my two children. Plus, I’ve my adopted daughter Pooja who is married and settled in South Africa, coming to Mumbai with her son on my birthday. He is sweetest baby I’ve ever seen. I can’t ask for more.”
Raveena is in a blissfully happy space. “I sometimes feel there is so much happiness in my life. Kahin kisiki nazar na lag jaye. By God’s grace, I’ve the most amazing husband and my children are growing up with the right values.”
Raveena also spoke about how strict of a mother she is. “I discipline them. One of us has to. I make sure the kids eat right. I don’t allow them to have junk food and aerated drinks.”
When talking about career, Raveena has made a much better comeback after marriage than her contemporary Karisma Kapoor who flopped miserably with Dangerous Ishq.
Says Raveena generously, “I think all of us from my generation Lolo (Karisma), Tabu, Urmila and I are doing well for ourselves. Manisha Koirala had a health setback recently. But she has bounced back so beautifully. I want all of us to be happy and healthy.”
Raveena is all set to play a club singer in Anurag Kashyap’s next, Bombay Velvet. “I’ve known Anurag from the time he wrote Shool for Ram Gopal Varma. He said, ‘Ma’am only you can do this part.’ I’ve two fantastic songs to perform. I can’t stop humming the numbers.”
Luckily Raveena is in good shape to do song-and-dance numbers. Says Raveena, “Whether it was ‘Tu Cheez Badi Hai Mast Mast’ and ‘Shaher Ki Ladki’ early in my career or ‘Aa Gunah Karle’ and ‘Yeh Raat’ in Aks, I’ve always been lucky with my songs. ..In fact I’ve been blessed all my life.”
