Raveena Tandon Reflects on Career Success and Positive Karma

Fresh off the triumph of her latest series, “Karmma Calling,” actress Raveena Tandon believes that her 33-year career has been shaped by the positive deeds she has accumulated. Whether on the big screen or streaming platforms, she attributes her involvement in remarkable projects to the good karma she has generated over the years.

Receiving acclaim for her portrayal of ’90s Bollywood diva-turned-socialite, Indrani Kothari, in the Disney+ Hotstar show, Tandon expresses satisfaction with the diverse roles she has been playing in recent years.

In 2021, she made her web series debut with Netflix’s critically praised cop drama, “Aranyak,” and made her Kannada cinema debut the following year with “K.G.F: Chapter 2.” Her accomplishments were further highlighted in 2023 when she was honored with the Padma Shri, the fourth-highest Indian civilian award.

Tandon emphasizes her belief in karma, stating, “What you put out in this world takes a full circle and comes back.” Reflecting on her successful year, including winning awards for “Aranyak” and the release of “K.G.F: Chapter 2,” she attributes these opportunities to her positive karma.

While currently filming “Welcome 3,” the National Award winner remarks on the current favorable climate for actors, emphasizing the balance between OTT and theatrical releases. She notes the positive shift for female actors, contrasting it with the limited opportunities women had in the ’90s after reaching a certain age or getting married.

In “Karmma Calling,” Tandon’s character, Indrani, is portrayed as an ‘ice queen’ in the coastal town of Alibaug. Drawing inspiration from the American series “Revenge,” the show explores Indrani’s encounters with a mysterious woman named Karma.

Acknowledging the contrasts between herself and her character, Tandon describes Indrani as an almost villainous figure with hidden layers. She emphasizes that while both are ’90s Bollywood divas, she and Indrani lead entirely different lives.

As for the future, Tandon remains uncertain about the premiere of “Aranyak” Season 2 but expresses optimism about the return of “Karmma Calling” for additional chapters, delving deeper into the ’90s film industry.

Excited about her daughter Rasha Thadani’s acting debut, Tandon shares the joy of witnessing her child’s initial successes. However, she acknowledges the long journey ahead for her daughter, emphasizing the importance of allowing children to learn from their own experiences.

Looking ahead, Tandon is gearing up for the release of “Patna Shukla” in March on Disney+ Hotstar and “Ghudchadi,” set for a direct-to-digital launch.
