Raveena Tandon is not happy with stick-thin girls in the glamour industry and says they have made life tough for women like her. However, she is happy with her curvy self.
"I have always believed in a woman's elegance, grace and femininity. Today most of the girls are stick-thin and that's a tragedy. They have made life tough for women like me," the 38-year-old said here Friday while unveiling designer Sonakshi Raja's clothes, to be showcased at the upcoming Lakme Fashion Week.
"Today, when girls dance, it looks like two dandiya sticks are dancing. It's funny because I am happy with my size. I am a normal size, I am an average person. Sonakshi designs for women of all sizes," added the actress of films like "Mohra".
Lakme Fashion Week 2013 will be held March 21-26 in Mumbai.
Raveena is off for a vacation with her two children and won't be there to support Sonakshi during the fashion week.
"I am here today because unfortunately I would not be here during Lakme Fashion Week. She (Sonakshi Raja) is like my little sister and I always encourage her because she is very talented. I am leaving for a vacation with my kids right now. But I will always be there for her," Raveena said.
On the film front, Raveena will soon be seen in "Shobhana 7 Nights".

Raveena has a point about the insecurity of probably the new generation of actresses and their ridiculous obsession with weight in bollywood.
Most of these so-called actresses, Anushka, sonam, deepika, ought to be focusing on their bad acting rather than their weight. It proves that deep down these sorts of 'models' are too shallow and vain, concerned much more about their image than anything else. Yes, they may pretend from time to time but I am not at all convinced about their authenticity as actors. As for Kareena, I cannot bring myself to respect her for it was her who begun the obsession with size zero, honestly.
Kudos to Raveena for having guts to speak out.
People are missing the point Raveena is making right now! Being skinny is good but not to the point of where you end up having to fight death to survive! As most anorexic individuals do. Shilpa is skinny but she is not a skeleton which is why she looks good! Check the picture of Anushka and then tell me, what the actress just stated is wrong! There is a limit to being skinny! Even am skinny but I sure as hell do not look unhealthy!
As someone who has been naturally thin her whole life it honestly hurts me when people and actresses say things like oh "skinny girls don't look good only curvy ones do" I agree that an actress or any girl for that matter should not loose weight just for the sake of being skinny. However, it is outright ignorant to say that all skinny girls in general are unattractive because clearly they are not.
Coming from a skinny girl like me all I can say is Raveena you are simply playing sour grapes here hunn because you have never been skinny and Shilpa was a tough competition for you. I personally would love to be curvy but no matter what I eat I can't sustain the weight, even the dietician was no help. So as a skinny girl I am happy with the way I look.
we all are looking at these actors for being good looking and bigger than life but it is getting to a point of unhealthy skinny. Anushka is by far is the skinniest right now. moderate weight is good and real for a role model. i would hate for younger generation to look at the skin and bones and get sick to look like that.
Great article !!
Just two days back, I critizied an actress who lose weight because of producer pressure. This quite disgusting !
We should accept actresses for their acting skills not for their physical appearance !
Besides those actresses give a bad example for girls who want to be as skinny as themand who aren't eating !!!
...other than Kareena.. the only bolly actress who looks very fragile and unhealthy skinny is Anushka Sharma..
plump cheeks but scrawny legs and waist.. sign of anorexia o__O
I totally agree with raveena. From a girls point of view i dont feel that size zero is sexy but if you want to lose weight theres no problem with that just dont go to the extreme. In bollywood there a quite a few actresses who promote being healthy like vidya, priyanka and so on. In many movies the actresses are required to lose weight and become a size zero. But i feel that in 2013 size zero is no more sexy
Reading some comments on Kareena here and all I can think is that whenever she puts on weight people criticize her, when she loses weight people criticize her so what on earth is she supposed to do? I don't even like the women and I feel sorry for her because of the shit people say about her size.
Raveena doesnt remember modern day actresses like Sonakshi Sinha who are far from thin, in fact healthy and curvy! Even Priyanka, Parineeti, Vidya Balan, all of these top actresses look healthy and curvaceous! Even the young ones like Alia Bhatt are quite plump! Only Kareena Kapoor and some heroines like her are obsessed with size zero!
