Bollywood actress Raveena Tandon is going to be felicitated on January 20 for her huge achievements as an actor as well as vital contributions towards social causes by a famous global research company. The event is about to commemorate the 50 most influential and motivational ladies in Maharashtra from various fields.
In a conversation with media reporters, Raveena said, “I am truly humbled to be surrounded by legendary people from our industry and also from other spheres. They have carried out some great social work and have worked towards the betterment of our society.”
The popular Hindi actress also mentioned that women are prospering by leaps and bounds and bringing their dreams into reality with their hard efforts. “They are gaining respect globally through their hard work and achievements. On the other hand, it’s shameful to hear bigoted and chauvinistic comments by some people, who are supposed to be our leaders and clerics,” Raveena says.
The actress also talked about societal issues that concern her as a woman and said, “The latest victim to be shamed for her success was Zaira Wasim. She had to apologise because of the abuses and threats to her life.” Zaira Wasim, the Kashmiri heroine who recently starred in Aamir Khan’s latest Bollywood movie Dangal, apologised on social media.
Raveena further added, “Rape and violence against women is also an issue that needs to be handled sternly. Mohammed Afroz, who was the most brutal attacker of Nirbhaya (case), got off scot-free and was given a job by the government. Giving incentives to rapists only encourages and sets a wrong precedent.”
