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.
