After facing the arc lights for decades, Raveena Tandon has now gone behind the camera. The actor, who has been dabbling in wildlife photography for some time, is showcasing her maiden collection at an exhibition at Jehangir Art Gallery in Kala Ghoda, tomorrow.

Says the actor, “The pictures have been taken at different forests in India, which include the Kabini Wildlife Sanctuary in Karnataka, Jim Corbett National Park in Uttarakhand and the Kaziranga National Park in Assam. My children [Rasha and Ranbir] love visiting wildlife sanctuaries, these are images that have been taken during our travels.”

Raveena Tandon is among the 78 chosen photographers who will be displaying their works at the show, H2Photo. The proceeds from the sales will go towards installing solar pump sets at sanctuaries to revive depleting watering holes. “I am the only amateur among so many professionals,” says Tandon, who is currently honing her skill under the tutelage of her photographer friends, Avinash Gowariker and Pavitr Saith.

A vociferous animal activist, Tandon’s interest in wildlife photography stems from her love for them. “It is amazing to see them in the natural habitat,” says the actor, who hopes to have a solo exhibition of her clicks soon.

Raveena Tandon became every girl’s go-to beauty guru last year as she turned vlogger and shared her skincare secrets on her social media handle. Now, mid-day has learnt that the actor is gearing up to launch her own line of skincare products.

A source close to the actor reveals, “Raveena has been approached by a beauty products company for a joint venture. While the actor has agreed in principle, the modalities are being worked out. The signature line will consist of hair and skincare products.” Confirming the news, Tandon says that it was her fan base that prompted her to take her love for beauty to the next level. “When I started my vlog BeautyWithRavz, many of my fans urged me to launch skincare products made from natural ingredients. I thought it would be a good idea. Being an entrepreneur, I wanted to extend my entrepreneurial ability to a sphere that is close to my heart,” she says.

One to swear by the goodness of natural products, she insists that she will adopt the same philosophy in her range too. “The products won’t rely on animal testing, and won’t contain harmful chemicals.”

Many actors have ventured into the market with their collection of beauty essentials. Ask her how she intends to stand out from the bandwagon, she says, “I’m not pursuing this to make money. I only wish to deliver quality products to consumers and make them happy.”

Always envied flawless skin of Bollywood’s leading ladies? Well, B-Town’s mast mast girl Raveena Tandon might just help you achieve that

Always envied flawless skin of Bollywood’s leading ladies? Well, B-Town’s mast mast girl Raveena Tandon might just help you achieve that. The actor has started her own beauty video blog (vlog), called Beauty Talkies With Ravz, where she gives skincare tips and shares her beauty secrets with her followers – all in videos of under a minute.

Tandon says that the idea of starting a beauty vlog germinated when she was flooded with requests for the same by her fans. “I’m grateful for all the love that fans have sent my way. I saw this as an opportunity to reciprocate their love. I will be addressing skin concerns and questions related to beauty that I get asked often.”

The response to her first two videos has been encouraging, she beams. While one may assume that the actor will recommend high-end skincare products that will burn a hole in their pockets, Tandon asserts that she suggests only “ghar ke nuskhe.” “I share all the home remedies that have been passed on to me. The tips that I suggest are easy to follow. The videos too are conceptualised by me,” she says of the posts that drop online every Wednesday.

Taking advantage of the interactive nature of social media, Tandon adds that she intends to take the project ahead by having interactive sessions with her fans in the near future. “Right now, we post the videos once a week. Depending on the audiences’ response, we will decide the frequency of the segment. Even if I’m travelling or busy with a shoot, I’ll fit this commitment in my schedule.”

Unless you have been living under a rock or enjoying your Hawaiian dream at some secluded island, you must have definitely come across this 19-year-old Barbie look-alike, whose killer moves are still continuing to blow our minds away. Dytto aka the break-dancing Barbie who owns slow motion dancing like no one else, became an internet sensation after her robotic dance on ‘I’m a Barbie girl’ went viral. From robotic moves, popping, slow motion to finger tutting and break dancing; you name it and Dytto will show you who the real boss is.

We secretly hope that the toy Barbie is as cool as Dytto. 

In fact her killer footwork landed her as a guest on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and since then there is nothing that’s stopping her from taking the internet by storm. We are simply in awe with her beauty and dance. Here she is flooring all of us with her freestyle dance. 

After charmingly break-dancing her way into our hearts, Dytto decided to sweep us Indians off our feet by grooving on our beloved sensuous number ‘Tip Tip Barsa Paani’. In fact, she was invited as a guest on the sets of a popular dance reality show, where she stunned the audience and the judges alike. 


With over 1.3 million followers on YouTube, her popularity is no joke and we aren’t surprised at all. Dytto even stunned dancers Raghav and Dharmesh who are considered to be slo-mo experts in India. Here’s how Raghav and Dytto ‘slowly’ won us over with their swag.  

Ever since her Barbie break-dance went viral, things have turned around for Dytto and her fan base is only multiplying with each passing day. As for her dance, we never imagined such a rendition for the sensuous Raveena Tandon song.

“Yeh Rat Aur Yeh Duri, Tera Milana Hai Jaruri…..Kee Dil Mera…..Kee Dil Mera Dhak Dhak Dole, Diwana Liye Jayey Hichakole,” is there anyone who doesn't remember these lyrics? Anyone? Well, if you haven't….you have seriously missed something really big in your life.

It's common knowledge that this popular sing is from 90s classic 'Andaz Apna Apna'. It is one of those rare films which also starred Salman Khan, Aamir Khan, Karisma Kapoor, Raveena Tandon, Shakti Kapoor and Mehmood that tanked at the box office but later got the status of a cult film. Well, we couldn't agree more, Salman Khan and Aamir Khan's camaraderie was so perfect, that you watch this film once and you can never get over it.

'Andaz Apna Apna' Sequel Won't Be The Same Without Aamir & Salman

This film will always hold a special place in our hearts because of its cracking humour. Lately, there are reports going around about the sequel of the film and we all know that anyone who has seen this film would love to see the original cast taking the franchise forward.

Wouldn't you agree that recreating this film with the new cast would be an ultimate sin? Looks like the people in 1994 were far more intelligent to realise the importance of what that cast gave us than the maker himself.

A recent report in DNA claims that Rajkumar Santoshi has given a heads up for the sequel but neither of the Khans will be seen in the film. And the news itself breaks our heart into million pieces. Like how… on Earth could he even say so?

“For humor, you need innocence. That time, these actors had the innocence. Now, it will look forced. It looks cute if a 20-year-old is chasing a girl. A 45-50-year-old man chasing young girls looks vulgar,” said the maker in the report.

'Andaz Apna Apna' Sequel Won't Be The Same Without Aamir & Salman

He also hinted that young actors will be seen in the film. “There is Ranveer Singh, Ranbir Kapoor, Varun Dhawan… They are all promising actors and they have the knack for comedy. I will pick up good talent for the film.”

Well….well….well….we believe either the film should have Salman and Aamir or shouldn't be made at all!
