Bollywood actress Raveena Tandon has been winning hearts since 1990. Not only hit films like 'Aks' but Raveena has also been associated with some of the most popular songs in Hindi cinema. One such iconic song is 'Tip Tip Barsa Pani,' widely regarded as one of the most sensual rain songs in Indian cinema. However, Raveena has revealed that she had certain conditions before agreeing to do the song.
In a recent interview, Raveena emphasized that while she has performed in sensual songs, they were never overtly explicit. She explained the distinction between in-your-face sexuality and sensuality and needed to maintain that balance. Raveena was evident with the song's makers that her saree wouldn't come off, there wouldn't be any kissing, and specific actions wouldn't take place. Instead of tick marks, there were more cross marks on her list of conditions. Eventually, they came up with a 'Tip Tip,' which struck the right balance of sensuality.
The song 'Tip Tip Barsa Pani' was part of the film 'Mohra,' where Raveena starred opposite Akshay Kumar. Their on-screen chemistry in the song left a lasting impact on fans, who still haven't gotten over it. In an earlier interview, the film's writer, Shabbir Boxwala, revealed that Raveena had some reservations about doing the song. She expressed concerns about her father's disapproval. However, the film's director, Rajiv Rai, advised her not to show the film to her father, and eventually, she agreed to do the song with her conditions in place.
Adding to her accolades, Raveena Tandon was recently honored with the Padma Shri, one of the highest civilian awards in India, for her significant contributions to Indian cinema. In a heartfelt gesture, she dedicated the prestigious award to her father, highlighting the importance of his support and guidance throughout her career.
Raveena Tandon's enduring popularity and her ability to strike a balance between sensuality and her own principles have solidified her position as one of the most beloved actresses in Hindi cinema. Her talent, dedication, and the impact she has made on the industry continue to be recognized and appreciated by both her fans and the film fraternity.
