When the gor­geous Raveena Tan­don Thadani walked into Magna Lounge in Mumbai to un­veil the Novem­ber 2014 is­sue of Savvy— she graced the cover—the crowds out­side thronged to have a glimpse of the glam actress. Look­ing re­splen­dent in a red gown, the beau­ti­ful lady posed con­fi­dently for the shut­ter­bugs. And then along with Nari Hira, Chair­man, Magna Pub­lish­ing Co Ltd; An­drea CostaBir, Edi­tor, Savvy; Poonam Khubani, Vice Pres­i­dent, Tel­e­Brands and com­pere Ru­pali Suri; Raveena un­veiled the smash­ing cover of Savvy in front of the me­dia!

At the me­dia in­ter­ac­tion, Raveena averred, “It is a huge hon­our to be on the cover of Savvy as this mag­a­zine al­ways spot­lights women of sub­stance.” She then sport­ingly fielded a bar­rage of ques­tions about her forth­com­ing films Bom­bay Vel­vet and Shabd, and her equa­tion with Sal­man Khan, Ak­shay Ku­mar and oth­ers. There were a lot of ques­tions on her film An­daaz Apna Apna which is be­ing re­made. Raveena, in her bindaas style, dis­armed the me­dia by re­veal­ing that though the film was a laugh-a-thon, dur­ing the mak­ing of the film, all of them— Aamir Khan, Sal­man Khan, Karisma Kapoor and her­self—were not on talk­ing terms!

When asked why she wasn’t ‘ bor­ingly po­lit­i­cally cor­rect’ like the other stars, Raveena very forthrightly said, “Well, that’s me! I be­lieve that you can never hide a lie, so al­ways stick to the truth. In the be­gin­ning, the me­dia thought I was be­ing fake, but over the years they’ve re­al­ized that ob­vi­ously one can’t keep a mask on for so long.” …And as Raveena walked out of Magna House, her fans rushed to her for au­to­graphs. Un­doubt­edly, she came, she saw and she con­quered!
