Raveena Tandon who recently started her second inning in Bollywood with “Maatr”, is gearing up for National Award-winning director Onir’s next film “Shab”.
During the promotional interviews of “Shab”, Raveen says she had a huge crush on actor Sanjay Dutt at one point. When was asked about her favorite stars she said the choice changes from time to time.
“In my childhood days, I was a fan of Rishi Kapoor and then when I grew up a bit, I had a crush on Sanjay Dutt. I have worked with him in seven films. I used to be very scared while working with him as I couldn’t believe that I was actually doing a film with someone whose poster were all over my room’s wall. “I had a very huge crush on him,” said the actress, who has worked with Sanjay in films like “Kshatriya”, “Vijeta” and “L.O.C Kargil”.
Talking about Shab, Raveena said, “It is a very sensitive film dealing with relationships. Relationships are never easy and are always complicated. The film is made with very ensemble cast and mostly it talks about relationships and the way everyone is connected with each other.”
“I feel that when people will watch the film, they will easily connect some or the other character,” she added.
The actress, who has portrayed some memorable characters in films like “Daman” and “Satta”, says doing different things and characters excites her.
“I mostly try to do different characters. After Maatr, you will see me here in a very glamorous avatar with a bit of grey shades in it. Doing different things excites me. I like to do things which challenges me as an actor, something which i never did before. So all that is exciting for me, and I hope I am successful in this as well,” she added.
Directed by Onir, Shab also features Arpita Chatterjee, Ashish Bisht, Simon Frenay, Gaurav Nanda and Areesz Ganddi. The film is scheduled to release on June 30.
