Where the casting couch prevails, some women strip for success and some many men get reduced to mere gigolos, ravishing Raveena Tandon wants to keep her daughter a mile away from the big bad world of Bollywood!
Though the actress shot to fame with item songs and acting, she would not like her daughter to follow her footprints. "I think there is too much of nudity in glam world today. I don't want my daughter to join the film industry. You have new girls coming in who are so ambitious that they are ready to do anything to reach the top. I will prefer my daughter to pursue some other career than entering filmdom," says Raveena.
The realisation came when Raveena was hounded by a controversy where she had to apologise for her latka jhatka songs. She admits she shouldn't have done all that.
Rumoursare that the actress-turned-mother is flooded with film offers. But, Raveena is dilly-dallying the assignments. She tells the reason: "Once you join films, you have to follow the deadlines. I have seen hectic schedules, tense moments and day and night work. I don't want to be under pressure with work. There are some good offers and I will definitely come back in the film industry with some good meaningful roles but not now. I have my priorities set, she states.
Role of being a mother has taken over Raveena's life. She does not want to miss a minute of the growing period of her daughter's life. "I think I need to give complete two years to my daughter Rasha and only after that I will decide whether t enter the industry or delay it further. Her activities right now are treasured moments for me. How can I miss them?" quips Raveena.
