Mumbai – Bollywood actress Raveena Tandon faced a violent confrontation with a mob in Mumbai’s Bandra on Saturday night, following accusations that her driver was involved in rash driving. The incident escalated as allegations emerged that Raveena assaulted some women at the scene.

Videos circulating on social media show Raveena, dressed in white, surrounded by an agitated crowd. In the footage, Raveena is seen pleading with the mob, asking them not to hit her. She can be heard saying, “Don’t push. Please don’t hit me.” The chaos unfolded with one woman shouting, “My nose is bleeding. She (Raveena) assaulted me.” Some onlookers were also seen calling the police while others urged the crowd to assault the actress, shouting, “Maaro isko” (Hit her).

An alleged victim claimed that Raveena emerged from her car in a drunken state to defend her driver and subsequently assaulted the victim’s mother, causing serious head injuries. However, conflicting reports suggest that the car did not actually make contact with anyone, and Raveena has since sought legal counsel to address the allegations.

In the videos, Raveena can also be seen asking bystanders not to record the incident, trying to de-escalate the situation amid the chaos.

Raveena Tandon was recently seen portraying a lawyer in the film, Patna Shuklla, alongside the late actor Satish Kaushik and Manav Vij. The film, produced by Arbaaz Khan and directed by Vivek Budakoti, delves into the education scam involving roll numbers that impacts the lives of earnest students in India. Raveena’s character, Tanvi Shukla, is described as a woman balancing her professional and personal life, a narrative that resonates with many Indian women.

In a statement about her role, Raveena said, “Patna Shuklla aka Tanvi Shuklla’s journey is relatable with Indians, it is a story of women leading at the front and managing her household and work life, which certainly is every woman in our country. I’ve poured a part of myself into my character.”

Patna Shuklla, is currently streaming on Disney+ Hotstar. Raveena will also be seen in upcoming projects, Ghudchadi and Welcome Back.
