Raveena Tandon recently discussed celebrities coming under fire for speaking, or even failing to speak, on existing issues in the country. She stated that in both cases, it is the actors who suffer. She also described Twitter as polarised, with left and right-wing factions.
During a podcast with ANI, Raveen faced the question about celebs coming under criticism for not speaking up on issues. She responded, “Damned if you speak, and damned if you don't. For example, according to me, Twitter is completely polarised. It's either the right wing or the left wing. They have completely taken over, there's nothing that you can do. So, either you are a Sanghi or a Naxalite. It's either or, there's no middle path left anymore, no neutral path that you can take. But, yes when it comes to my country and when I have to speak up for my country fir mai bhi bheer jati hu (then I fight back),” she added.
Raveena went on to reveal the kind of comments she gets on social media for speaking her mind. She also said, “I do get comments ‘Are tu toh acting hi kar tu kya janti hai’. Why? Am I not a citizen of this country? Am I not a mother who has children who will be the next generation of this country? Am I not paying my taxes, paying my dues living in this country? Am I not proud of this country? What has taken me to be an actress and taken my rights away to speak about when I want to speak about my country? Who are you to tell me that? If I don't come to your house and tell you ‘don’t talk about this.' who are you to come to my house and tell me ‘don’t talk about this?'”
Raveena was most recently seen in KGF: Chapter 2, alongside Yash and Sanjay Dutt. She has Ghudchadi with Sanjay Dutt and Patna Shukla with Arbaaz Khan. Aside from that, she will be back with the second season of her Netflix series, Aranyak.
