In her forthcoming film Maatr, Raveena Tandon takes on the subject of rape with a brutal force.The film lays open some ugly truth about the way the judicial system fails a rape victim.
The experience of working in the film has left her so shaken she had a tough time dubbing her lines.
Says the actress, “Some portions of the film are so stark real and brutal
I had a tough time watching myself on screen.
I couldn’t immediately dub my lines while watching what we’ve shot. It is so real and disturbing.I had to stop,gather my strength and return.”
Raveena has earlier done a film on marital rape Kalpana Lajmi’sDaman for which the actress won the National award .
Says Raveena emotionally, “This is a topic I feel very strongly about.I’ve three daughters(two of them are adoptive) and I worry about their safety constantly.And why just daughters? Are sons safe any more? Is anyone safe any longer?
