Having given several comic hits and dramas, actress Raveena Tandon will now hit the screens again after so long. The actress will next be seen essaying the role of a mother in the upcoming film ‘Maatr – The Mother’.
Directed by Ashtar Sayyed, “The Mother”, which features “Slumdog Millionaire” fame actor Madhur Mittal as antagonist, delves on the road to justice for women who are victims of domestic violence and rape.
The film is mainly about the journey of justice for the women played by Raveena Tandon who have been victimised by domestic violence and rape. The film written by Michael Pellico happens to be crime thriller drama.
Well! When Raveena Tandon was asked about the film and her choice on it, this is what she had to say:
“I found the script very gratifying, as it showed how one can deal with criminals indulging in crime against women while remaining on the right side of the law. As a society, we need to change our laws to protect women,” Raveena had said.
“‘Maatr’ speaks about the system failure and what really can be done or what should be done when such violence against women happens,” Raveena added.
The shooting of the film, which is based in Delhi, was wrapped in just 39 days, Raveena says it was not an easy experience for her.
“When I shot for a few scenes, I was disturbed for a week after that. We were all disturbed thinking that these kinds of horrific things can happen to a living being. We have just shown 10 percent of what a woman has to deal with when such a thing happens with her,” Raveena said.
The film titled “The Mother” stars Raveena in the lead and will hit the screens on April 21, 2017
