Raveena Tandon is a National Film Award winning Indian actress, producer and a former model. She has primarily worked in Bollywood films, though she appeared in a few Tamil, Kannada and Telugu films as well.
Tandon made her acting debut with 'Patthar Ke Phool' and won the Filmfare Lux New Face Award for her performance in the film. During the 90's, she was part of several commercial successes such as 'Mohra', 'Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi' and 'Ziddi', among others. Despite attaining popularity, she was not particularly recognised as an actor. This however changed in the early 2000's, when she ventured into more serious roles and turned towards arthouse and parallel cinema. She got high critical acclaim for her performances in films like 'Aks' and 'Satta', and had the peak of her career in 2002, when she won the National Film Award for Best Actress for her performance in Kalpana Lajmi's 'Daman: A Victim of Marital Violence'.
