Mumbai, May 26 -- Even though Bombay Velvet failed to create a stir at the box office, one person who has still managed to garner some positive reviews is Raveena Tandon.
The actor, who essayed the role of a jazz singer in the film, is overwhelmed with the response she has received. "I did not think my role would get the kind of overwhelming response that it has got.
It was kind of a blink-and-miss appearance," says Raveena, adding that in the '90s, she was still familiar with such a response, but "in today's day and age, to get this kind of praise is humbling".
In the recent years, Raveena hasn't been part of too many films. Ask her why, and she says, "I'm more content being at home running after my kids rather than doing a film, which is meaningless. Unless something really good comes along, I don't want to take a risk just because I want to be seen on the big screen."
On the other hand, the National Award-winning actor, who has been part of women-centric films such as Daman (2001) and Satta (2004) in the past, feels that now is a good time to be part of such projects.
"Nowadays, a lot more films are working well commercially because of the multiplex era. This helps womencentric films do well, too. Five to 10 years ago, it was very rare for a female-centric film to do well. The success ratio has definitely risen for such films over the years," says Raveena.
