Raveena Tandon, who recently judged contestants on the show Comedy Ka Maha Muqqabala, will return to TV shortly. Apparently, her next is a strictly-under-wraps show that will document the success stories of achievers from different walks of life through conversations with their families, friends and co-workers. The wishlist of celebrities currently includes business tycoon Mukesh Ambani and West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee. But the actor remains tight-lipped. All she’s willing to say is, “Yes, I’m hosting a lifestyle show for NDTV.”

Raveena, who was seen in a sparkling cameo in Buddha Hoga Terra Baap earlier this year, finished shooting for the thriller, Alert, in Goa with Sanjay Dutt. She’s now excited about a comedy film where she will be seen opposite Arjun Rampal, Paresh Rawal and Irrfan Khan. “It’s a masala movie and I’m debating between two roles,” she informs. In absolute contrast is Mamma Kehti Hain — a film about a mother and a child: “And though no one in my family went missing, the script brought tears to my eyes.”

However, the film that the National Award winning actor is really looking forward to is Sudipto Chattopadhyay’s Shobhana’s 7 Nights, in which she plays a 40-year-old abused socialite-wife who is in a relationship with a toy boy played by Amit Purohit. “It’s a daringly different role in terms of approach. And despite the title, it’s not a sleazy porn film, but an expose of Mumbai’s dark underbelly and its strange creatures of the night,” she says, adding, “I’ve heard and read about young strugglers becoming victims of casting agents and getting into affairs with older women, but Sudipto’s film is an eye-opener that unveils an exciting new chapter in my career.”
