During the India-Pakistan Kargil War, bombs were sent at the Pakistani side of the border with ‘To Nawaz Sharif, from Raveena Tandon’ written on them.
Back then, rumour had it that the Pakistani soldiers used to irk their Indian counterparts with taunts that they would leave Kashmir if India sent Raveena Tandon and Madhuri Dixit over.
Raveena Tandon ruled Bollywood in the 90s and was loved by people from across the world.
Tandon was at the centre of a “bombs” controversy during the 1999 Kargil war.
She was also said to be the then-PM Nawaz Sharif’s favourite Bollywood actor, which he revealed during one of his visits to India.
The actor has kept mum on the controversy, which surfaces every now and then.
However, the ‘Andaz Apna Apna’ star recently decided to spill beans over it.
“I would ask the world that if anything can be settled with love and dialogue, please do it. The colour of blood is red on both sides of the border. No one should be allowed to feel enchanted about a mother losing her sons or daughters,” said the star.
“If I have to stand defending the border to guard my country, I would hold the gun and I’ll stand there. I won’t have any second thoughts about it,” Raveena told Hindustan Times.
The actor revealed that she didn’t see the pictures at that time and came to know about them “much later.”
Moreover, Raveena also shed light on various memories from her acting career.
The 90s top heroine made her OTT debut in 2021 with Netflix’s suspense thriller ‘Aranyak’. In the show, Raveena played the role of an SHO Kasturi Dogra, solving a murder mystery. After the series’ success and critical acclaim, producer Sidharth Roy Kapur stamped a second season for the web series.
