When Raveena Tandon Opened Up About “Broken Engagement” With Akshay Kumar, Watch

Raveena Tandon recalls the time when she was jobless and her engagement with Akshay Kumar was called off.

Back in the 90s, Raveena Tandon and Akshay Kumar made a gorgeous couple. They were known for their sizzling on-screen chemistry which soon converted into off-screen romance as well. They featured together in several films like Mohra (1994) and Main Khiladi Tu Anari (1994). Their on-screen pairing was dearly loved by fans. While working together, they started dating and even got engaged in 1995. After being engaged for a brief time, the duo parted ways for reasons best known to them. While Raveena had a tough time dealing with the break-up, Akshay had allegedly moved on in no time.

Years later, Raveena opened up about her broken engagement during an interview with Zoom. The old clip is now going viral on Reddit. In the old interview, Raveena said that she was jobless when her engagement broke and she didn’t know where she was going ahead in her life. Raveena told that she would go out for long drives in her luxury car as she used to have sleepless nights.

The actress further revealed the one moment that changed her perspective towards the problems she was facing. She said that while driving one night, she looked at the other side of Mumbai which was full of slums. She saw how a man was beating his wife, a naked child was crying out loud in the rain, a woman was trying to fix her roof to avoid rainwater. Raveena said that looking at the problems of the slum dwellers, she realised that she was lucky to have functional hands and legs, a Mercedes to drive and ample food on the plate. She added that she had the luxury to go back home, switch on the AC and sleep. She wondered that when she had everything in life, then why was she crying.

Raveena then also added that whatever has happened to her is the other person’s karma. She said that her goal was to focus on her own karma and by the grace of God, she now has two children.
