Soni Razdan is a British actress and film director who works in Hindi films. She was born in Birmingham, United Kingdom on October 25, 1956. Soni Razdan starred in more than 20 movies in her career, most of which have appeared to be successful including ‘Jaan-E-Mann.

Soni Razdan recently shot a music video in Kashmir, which she describes as an emotional experience. “When I shot last year, there was no Delta variant or a vaccine. I was scared and had planned to gargle post pack up and every time I took a break as a precaution and also do other things for better immunity, but maine kuch nahin kiya (laughs). Though on the sets, we followed all protocols and regulations with regards to sanitization, so it was all taken care of. Funnily, I forgot about all else when I was shooting as I was focused on the job,” she shares.

She adds, “I didn’t expect such feelings even though I have never lived in Kashmir. I don’t know where it came from. And I was taken aback to feel so much as I am a Kashmiri Pandit but I have not lost my home in Kashmir. I don’t have a direct link to that kind of loss or pain yet loss is a part of our lives in some form or the other. But the fear of losing our homes or displacement is universal. All of us fear losing our houses to an earthquake or any calamity.”
