I couldn’t stop cry­ing af­ter I fin­ished dub­bing: Raveena Tan­don

There are times when ex­pe­ri­ences leave be­hind a per­ma­nent mark on us. Ac­tor Raveena Tan­don (left) un­der­went a sim­i­lar episode in her life while shoot­ing for her next, in which she plays the lead role.

When Raveena first heard the nar­ra­tion of the film, which is based on vi­o­lence against women — she found the script both in­ter­est­ing and dis­turb­ing. As she started shoot­ing, she could con­nect with her char­ac­ter well, and it slowly be­came dif­fi­cult for her to dis­so­ci­ate from the film even af­ter the shoot­ing was over. “I couldn’t sleep for three nights af­ter we shot the hor­rific in­ci­dent. The worst was when I had to dub for it all over again. I couldn’t stop cry­ing once the dub­bing got over. It was very dis­turb­ing,” she shares.

Raveena re­futes the re­ports that the film di­rected by Ashtar Sayed is based on the De­cem­ber 16 Delhi gan­grape . “The film is based in Delhi, but it has noth­ing to do with the in­ci­dent. How­ever, it’s re­ally strange that the minute we wrapped up shoot­ing in the Cap­i­tal, an in­ci­dent sim­i­lar to what we had shot hap­pened in Delhi. So when we read about it in news­pa­pers, we were shocked that some­thing we shot in fic­tion has ac­tu­ally hap­pened in real,” she ex­plains.
