Raveena gears up for a comeback


By Subhash K. Jha

Mumbai, Nov 5 (IANS) Raveena Tandon, who took a sabbatical after marriage and motherhood, is planning to face the camera again, tempted by some of the offers coming her way.

"One of them is a movie where I've the central role. So far, post-marriage the offers have been rather okay types. But this one is a woman-oriented film. See, if I do a film now it can't be the usual pony-tailed Jill-in-a-drill kind of thing. I'd be happy to do this one film, as long as they don't clash with my daughter's routine," Raveena told IANS.

The other offer, which "Mast" girl Raveena is tight-lipped about, is for a non-fiction programme on a news channel. "Doing TV is even easier for me because I can synchronise my clock according to Rasha's schedules. In any case, she's the least problematic child. Not at all cranky like her mother," said Raveena, who has two kids.

The National Award winning actress would be the latest in a long queue of married actresses who have returned after motherhood.

The successful ones were Rakhee, who returned with "Kabhi Kabhie" and "Tapasya", Sharmila Tagore, who did her most successful films like "Aradhana", "Amar Prem" and "Mausam" after marriage, Dimple Kapadia had a fabulous innings post marriage and motherhood with "Sagar", "Rudaali" and "Lekin" and Hema Malini, who continues to be a queen way past marriage and grownup daughters.
