Raveena, who made her debut in the 90s revealed that apart from the pay parity between female and male actors was massive, actresses were easily stereotyped and had little freedom to choose. She said, “There was a stereotyping earlier on when we started. But in retrospect when I think, there was that stereotyping because in the earlier days we would not do one-two films at a time, we would do 10-12 movies at a time. The thought for some films was, if it is a big star and a big director, it is going to be a superhit film let’s do it. In those days there wasn’t much selection.”

Raveena further said, “Of course, the monies were not that great for actresses in those days as well. What one hero would make in one film, we would after 15-16 films. More so we would then probably do many more films also. So, the stereotyping happened because you took time to establish yourself. When those films released, which had fixed scenes, six superhit songs, then more films like that would come and you would go on signing blindly. There was no career planning as such. It took us time to establish ourselves.”

Raveena also shared the position of actresses has become far better today saying, “Luckily, that has changed now. The times are such that after an Om Shanti Om, Deepika Padukone gets a Bajirao Mastani as her fifth-sixth film, getting the opportunity to do roles that she would want to do, which we got in our 20th after working for a big span. The actresses in our industry are luckily getting that in their fourth-fifth film to do.” 

She further added, “An Alia Bhatt got a chance to do a Highway with a good director like Imtiaz, straight after Student of the Year. That is just fantastic. In those days it definitely took time for us to establish ourselves. It wasn’t like we would think meticulously, ‘Oh I will do this next.’ Of course, OTT has also opened it up for every kind of film to be made.”

Raveena has been part of films like Dilwale, Mohra, Khiladiyon Ka Khiladi, Dulhe Raja, Bade Miyan Chote Miyan, and many others.
