Added by harini on Jun 23, 2011

After a long hiatus Raveena Tandon can be seen on big screen again. The last time we saw the actress was in 2006 in the movie ‘Sandwich’.

Raveena will be seen in an item song in the movie ‘Bbuddah Hoga Tera Baap’ that stars Amitabh Bachchan. The movie is to be released on July 1st and is directed by a very famous director down south, Puri Jagannath.

But the actress is quick to say that item song isn’t her come back.

"Comeback is a very overrated word. Whenever I do something after even a little gap people term it as a comeback. How many times will I make a comeback? I would prefer to call it a backdoor entry into films," she said.

She also said that the song wasn’t a typical item song, “Honestly it's not a typical item song of today. The coinage of an item song nowadays is a little different. Now item means something else only, but I have maintained that please don't expect a lot from the song because I am fully clothed in it”.

Raveena said she loved her character in the movie. “It is a very cool, fun song. The character of the girl, who is a very talkative, over dressed, over the top person, and thinks of herself as a rockstar, is understood through this song. So, basically, it is an introduction to my character. It is catchy and I loved moving on it. The best thing was that we finished it in one shift”.

She said that when she was first offered the movie, she rejected it.

"When this film was offered to me first, I had thought that I won't be able to do it, but then everyone said that you have to do it because this is perfect for you and only you can do it. Then I got to know that Mr. Bachchan is behind this, so I thought that even if I have five scenes with him, it will be great for me. This will be my fourth film with him, so in that thought I said yes to this film," said the actress.

Raveena Tandon has had the pleasure to act with Big B thrice before. She did movies "Bade Miyan Chote Miyan", "Aks" and "Agni Varsha" with Amitabh Bachchan.

"My equation with Mr. Bachchan depends on the film that I am doing with him. Like in 'Bade Miyan...’ I was like a brat with him always, since he has seen me since my childhood. But in 'Aks', it was very difficult for me because I had a very different role there”, said the actress remembering her previous experiences with Big B.

"I have idolized him since my childhood. Whenever I meet him I start rambling, I become nervous when he is around and I goof up a lot; so throughout 'Aks' I kept a distance from him, so that I can do the strong, confrontational, intense scenes with him," added the actress.

But she said that she was most comfortable with him in this movie.

"In this film, it was very comfortable because I'm playing myself a carefree person. I was allowed to say anything to him because the character was like this; so I wasn't even scared that he might feel bad. It was very easy and fun to play this role with him," she said.

Raveena also has two more movies down her kitty. She is doing ‘Laboratory’ a bilingual movie and another movie called ‘Aap Ke Liye Hum’ with Jaya Bachchan.
