In a recent interview, actor Raveena Tandon discussed how people told her she overstated the extent of body shaming in Bollywood. The actor admitted to Smita Prakash that she doesn’t care about appearing “plump” during their talk. She claimed that the “viciousness” of journalism in the 1990s completely infuriated her, and she left the field after getting married.

Although Raveena occasionally talked about how she struggled in the industry because of how she looked, most people didn’t really believe her. She was quoted by the news outlet ANI as stating, “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!”

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?”

Regarding the old magazines, Raveena also revealed that certain women were the “worst” rivals to other women since they body-shamed and slut-shamed others in an effort to pull them down.

Last seen in KGF: Chapter 2, Raveena. She is now working on Ghudchadi, a film starring Sanjay Dutt. She co-stars with Satish Kaushik in Arbaaz Khan’s Patna Shukla. In addition to this, she will make a comeback with the second season of her Aranyak Netflix web series.
