Raveena Tandon's Reply On Being Fat-Shamed, 'Motapa To Ghat Jayega, Aapki Surat Kaise Badal Payegi?'

The Shehar Ki Ladki, Raveen Tandon had ruled millions of hearts in the 90s with her stunning looks and sultry dance moves. The yellow chiffon saree clad Raveena, drenched in the rain while dancing to Tip Tip Barsa Paani is still our favourite and we love how this gorgeousness had put fire on-screen with her beauty and sensuality.

Talking about her personal life, Raveena had met her dream man, Anil Thadani during a business meeting. After a courtship of a few months, Anil had proposed to Raveena, and the two had got engaged in a low-key ceremony. On February 22, 2004, Raveena and Anil had tied the knot in traditional Punjabi and Sindhi style weddings.

Raveena Tandon is one of the few actresses of Bollywood, who are known for calling a spade a spade. With her unfiltered opinions and sassy responses, Raveena is still one of the most loved actresses in Hindi cinema. In an interview with NDTV GoodTimes, Raveena recalled the time when she and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan were fat-shamed after their delivery. Revealing how she had stood up for Aishwarya, Raveena said:

"There was a time when I had put on a lot of weight after I just delivered my son. And I remember, I started working after that and there was a press conference and that time they were fat-shaming me, they were fat-shaming Aishwarya Rai and I stood up for her at that time and I said she just had a baby."


In the same interaction, Raveena revealed an instance, when a journalist had mocked her for her weight and how she had given a befitting reply to him. Talking about the same, Raveena shared:

"I remember this journalist saying to me at a conference, ‘Arey Raveena ji, aap kitni moti ho gayi hai. Aap to mast mast hua karti thi, ab aap reality show kar rahi hai. So, I said, ‘Dekhiye bhai sahab, motapa to ghat jayega, lekin aapki surat kaise badal payegi?’"
