My darkest character yet: Raveena Tandon

By Hindustan Times

Raveena Tandon is set to seduce a much younger guy in Sudipto Chattopadhyay’s Shobhana 7 Nights. The actor who was last seen in Bbuddah... Hoga Terra Baap (2011) says, “This is my darkest character till date. In 1997, I was to play my first villainous role in Dus, but the film was shelved as
director Mukul Anand passed away mid-way.”

The actor, who is now married to producer Anil Thadani and has two kids, says she was initially apprehensive about taking up the negative part. She says, “Shobhana is conniving and manipulating. She has her reasons, but to constantly be in that dark state of mind for the role was emotionally draining for me. Sometimes after the shoot, I would come home and lock myself up alone to resist being mean to Anil.”

The film, she says, is bold and sensual. It’s a love story
