I was called so many things like ‘Amazonian’, ‘Thunder Thighs’ and ‘Miss arrogant’: Raveena Tandon on being body shamed in 90’s

Raveena Tandon is truly an epitome of beauty and has been one of the most versatile actresses of the film industry. With the films like Patthar Ke Phool (1991), Ziddi (1997) and to her foray in OTT with Aranyak, she has recieved all the love from the audience and still continues to impress with her acting skills.


Recently, in an interview, the actress went on to share about the 90’s media and revealed that the yellow press was at a peak at that time. She further went on to share how she was addressed by the different names and body shamed in magazines. Raveen quoted, “The media of the 1990s was terrible, it was yellow journalism at its peak. They had no morals, no scruples and no integrity. Luckily, today you have social media where you can put out your case right away in front of your fans. Your statement matters today. Some of those women editors today play the feminist card but I know how nasty they were back then. These are the very people who slut-shammed, body shamed, called me names and pet names. I was called so many things like ‘Amazonian’, ‘Thunder Thighs’ and ‘Miss arrogant’."

Raveena was last seen in KGF: Chapter 2, and will be next seen alongside Sanjay Dutt in  Binoy Gandhi’s directorial  Ghudchadi.
