Raveena Tandon remembers director’s outburst over ‘comatose’ child scene

Raveena Tandon remembered an incident where a director angrily instructed a “comatose” child to speak in a scene, leading to his abrupt departure from the set.

In an interview with Barkha Dutt on Mojo Story, the 51-year-old actress reminisced about rejecting movie offers in the past due to concerns about the portrayal of her character.

Raveena also revealed that she refused a role that demanded her to resemble a “Playboy Bunny,” remembering leaving a project due to a director’s disregard for her intellect.

The K.G.F: Chapter 2actress said, “I remember there was a film I did where the child was supposed to be in a coma, and the mother walks in, and the child is supposed to look at me and say, ‘Mumma, mumma, mumma’.”

“So my question was, the nurse comes to me just before this scene and says ‘aapka bachcha coma mein hai’, then how in the world is he crying out for his mother?”

When she raised this concern with the director, he became defensive, responding with, “He told me, ‘You don’t teach me how to direct’. I said, ‘Sir, but it’s a scientific fact, we can’t go wrong, people will laugh at us’. Because my neck is on the line as well. Ultimately, actors bear the brunt of the criticism.”

“But there’s a limit to what you can suggest as an actor. The director walked off the set, and I said, ‘Okay fine, then I’m not doing the film’.”

Raveena further told staed that she has no regrets about any role or song she has performed in the past.

“I very proudly stand by everything that I’ve done, because things that made me uncomfortable, I definitely did not do… Most of the time, I have stayed away from doing things that I principally didn’t agree with,” she said. This included rejecting a film on the basis of its costumes.”

She said, “I didn’t do kissing scenes, but I also didn’t do movies if the costumes I was not comfortable with. I left big movies with big stars if I wasn’t comfortable with the costumes.”

“There was a film that I had with a very, very big star, that I regret, because I really wanted to work with him, he was my favourite. But unfortunately, it had those pom-poms right here, like a Playboy Bunny, which to me was objectifying women.”
