Raveena Tandon was born in Mumbai, India to film director and father Ravi Tandon and his wife Veena Tandon. Due to her father’s work, she was raised in Mumbai alongside her brother Rajiv Tandon. After completing high school, Raveena joined Mithibai College in Mumbai.
Raveena Tandon began her career working as an intern for ad and filmmaker Prahlad Kakkar. Despite being born to film director Ravi Tandon, Raveena often cleaned floors and did odd jobs in the studio. While working there, she began a modeling career mostly subbing for no-show models. Once she realized the industry was full of opportunities, she began charging for her shoots. She received her first film role offer early in her modeling career but remained reluctant until her superiors encouraged her as it was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
Bearing in mind the thought that she had nothing to lose, Raveena made her acting debut with the film ‘ Patthar Ke Phool’ in 1991. The film was an instant success and she was awarded the Filmfare Award for Lux New Face of the Year. She followed up the role with appearances in the 1994 hit films Mohra,’ ‘Dilwale’ and ‘ Laadla’ earning herself a nomination at the Filmfare Awards for Best Supporting Actress.
In 1995, Raveena starred in the film ‘Zamaana Deewana’ alongside Shah Rukh Khan but the film failed to reach the anticipated commercial success in cinemas. She recovered swiftly with hit films like ‘ Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi,’ ‘ Ziddi,’ ‘ Sunny Dool,’ and ‘ Salaakhen.’ Raveena continued to dominate in most Bollywood films throughout the 90s and was the most popular movie actress with critics. In 2001, Raveena appeared in the film ‘Aks’ which landed her widespread praise, recognition and a win at the Bollywood Movie Awards for Best Supporting Actress -Aks
Later that year, Raveena Tandon won the National Film Award for Best Actress for her performance in the film ‘Daman: A Victim of Marital Violence.’ Raveena proceeded to star in the film ‘Satta’ and the 2006 film Sandwich. Due to the long breaks between her film appearances, Raveena began receiving criticism and her film success dropped tremendously. Around this time Raveena took a break from filming to focus on being a homemaker and raising her firstborn daughter.
The famous movie actress made her return to showbiz in 2014 as a judge on season one of ‘CEO’s Got Talent.’ In 2015, Raveena made her much-anticipated return to Bollywood with the film ‘Bombay Velvet.’ She has since appeared in ‘Maatr’ and ‘KGF: Chapter 2’. Despite her long break, from filming the actress still has what it takes and she seems to be winning critics over.

She also took a stand alongside animal rights activists when she sang to support ‘People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.’ Having begun her career as a model, Raveena leveled up her portfolio by posing for numerous ad campaigns throughout her career.
Raveena has had a successful run in her career and has been nominated for numerous awards and won a National Film Actress Award, two Filmfare Awards, one Bengali Film Journalists Association Award, two Bollywood Movie Awards, and one Awadh Samman Award, and a Screen Award.
In 1995 just as her career was taking off, Raveena adopted her nieces Pooja and Chaya who were her late cousin’s daughters. While visiting them in their home, Raveena was displeased by how their guardian was treating them and decided instantly that she would adopt them and give them a better life.
