A few days after her dad Ravi Tandon’s demise, Raveena is back on the sets for a shoot of her untitled movie. According to a source, “being the thorough professional she is, Raveena didn’t want her personal tragedy to affect her professional commitments. While she has been deeply disturbed by the demise of her father, the legendary producer Ravi Tandon, she doesn’t wish for her producers to suffer because of her unavailability. Being a producer’s daughter, she well understands the value of time and money and therefore, wouldn’t want anybody to be left waiting for her. She is shooting for her upcoming film and will continue with her other professional assignments as well.”
Meanwhile, like a doting daughter, Raveena Tandon performed the last rites of her late father Ravi Tandon. Defying the age-old tradition of performing last rites only my son, the actress lights her father’s pyre and makes history.
