Raveena Tandon is not only known for her stellar acting skills but also for her strong and distinct personality, which has made her quite a prominent figure among fans. The actress has often bridged the gap between Hindi and South Indian films, understanding the differences between the two. She has also been vocal about certain changes in the film industry.
In this context, Raveena has once again discussed her experiences in both the South Indian and Hindi film industries. She believes that the South Indian film industry thrives because of its dedication to its culture and traditions. Conversely, she thinks that the Hindi film industry has failed due to its constant pursuit of Westernization. In a recent interview, Raveena shared her experiences working with South Indian stars like Kamal Haasan, Chiranjeevi, and Nagarjuna.
Speaking to Rajshri Unplugged, Raveena reaffirmed her view that the South Indian film industry is much more disciplined and structured compared to the Hindi film industry. She also emphasized how being rooted in their culture has a significant impact on the success of South Indian films. According to her, they don’t make excessively commercial films.
Raveena Tandon continued by saying, “I think this approach works. Although in Mumbai they followed Western culture, they started making DVDs of the movies that weren’t doing well in terms of business. So, we needed to stay connected with what the audience desired. I have learned this from the South Indian industry.”
Raveena Tandon began her career in the Telugu film industry with “Bangaaru Bullodu” in 1993 and made her debut in the Tamil film industry with the movie “Sadhu” in 1994. She recently appeared in the highly successful Kannada film “KGF: Chapter 2.” The actress also revealed how, in the South, she had the freedom to eat anything she wanted, as it didn’t bother the filmmakers if she gained weight. However, upon returning to Mumbai, she had to shed the extra pounds.
