In the year 1991, the film ‘Prem Qaidi’ came under the direction of Murali Mohan Rao. It had many stars like Karishma Kapoor, Harish Kumar, Bharat, Dalip Thapar, Rama Vij, Paresh Rawal. The film was a Hindi remake of the 1990 Telugu film. The special thing is that Harish Kumar was in the lead role in both. Today we are mentioning this because Raveena Tandon refused to do this film. Now why he has done this, he has revealed in an interview. Let’s tell the reason for this.
Actually, Raveena Tandon has left many films in her career. He also rejected Prem Kaidi. Before Karisma Kapoor, she was the first choice of the makers. She was being cast opposite Harish Kumar. But because of one scene, he rejected the entire film. He has disclosed this in an interview given to ‘Etimes’ and has given the reason for it.
That’s why Raveena Tandon rejected
Raveena Tandon said, ‘I refused to be a prisoner of love with Venkatesh. There was a scene in it in which the actor would open my chain. I was very young at that time. When I heard this, I was shocked how can I do this in front of the camera. I will not do that. And I flatly refused to do this film. Because I was not comfortable.
That’s why Raveena Tandon reduced films
Raveena Tandon may have rejected this film but it really did wonders at the box office. However, apart from this, Raveena has said no to many films. And all of them have proved to be hits on the screen. He said during the interview, ‘Even today people ask why I didn’t do more films. Because those who got rejected did well at the box office. But I want to tell that I was completely shaken after the Nirbhaya incident. That’s why it was very important for me to do the film Matri. When corruption increased, I got colic. I had also done a film on rape called Jaago.
Raveena Tandon changed her perspective
Raveena Tandon further said, ‘I am a commercial actress, whose thinking has changed. Once I was shooting with Sunil Shetty and dancing in a song and then I thought when will I grow up? When will I grow as an actor? I thought about it very deeply that everything was getting very boring for me. And when this happens the person gets bored. Raveena Tandon said that she likes challenging roles. Especially those related to social issues. People forget very quickly so it is important that we keep important issues alive.
