Raveena Tandon is all set for the release of her upcoming film "Maatr".
During the interview, she revealed that she has faced many difficulties in Bollywood for speaking the truth and also added that one can't survive in the entertainment industry if they are transparent and honest.
The National Award-winning actress is known for her outspoken nature. So when she was asked if she had to pay a price for it, she said: "Yes, I think at times it is challenging and hard to survive in the entertainment industry if you are honest. I faced a lot of trouble for that, where I have been thrown out of films. I have been called a liar and I have been treated badly."
"However, I stuck to being honest and treated people with respect... something that I have learnt from my upbringing. All I knew is that time will unveil the reality. Today, I live with a clear heart and sleep in the night with a clear conscience. So I have no regrets."
Raveena believes that all women have a loving and caring nature that the world celebrates, but forgets about the inner strength that they possess. According to her, perhaps that is why the outer world thinks women are weaker -- which is untrue.
Her upcoming film "Maatr" is based on social discrimination and physical violence against women, the actress emphasized on a strong judicial system and sensible parenting to deal with such situations.
It can't be denied that crime against women in our society is on the rise.
Asked if the lifestyle of parents and working mothers who don't get enough time to spend with their children are causative factors, Raveena said: "No, I don't think so. Statistics say that most of the children who are bullying any weaker living creatures like stoning a bird, breaking or throwing little puppies from rooftop at a very young age end up becoming criminals because they start taking pleasure in the pain of a weaker person or animal.
"So it should be taken care of at a very early stage of life. It is the responsibility of parents to develop a compassionate mind in their children. You could be a homemaker or a working parent; if you don't have a sharp observation of your child's behaviour, you can't do that. I see no reason to blame working mothers for that," she added.
"Maatr" is all set to hit the silver screens on May 21, 2017.
