Raveena Tandon continues to be one of the most glamorous actresses in Bollywood even today. But her jalwa was at its peak during the Kargil War when Indian troops decided to flush out Pakistani soldiers from Indian land.
As a part of the strategy, the IAF then had launched Safed Sagar Operation to eliminate the Pakistani ground targets. It was one of the major decisions that helped India win the Kargil war.
Apparently, at that time Nawaz Sharif was the Prime Minister of India and his favourite Bollywood star was Raveena Tandon. Pakistani soldiers, who knew about the crush of their PM for the mast mast girl, repeatedly mocked the Indians saying that they will leave Kashmir if India gives them Raveena and Madhuri Dixit who was the Numero Uno of Bollywood at that time.
In reply to this, the officials loaded IAF Mig-27 with a weapon targeting the Pakistani troops with “From Raveena Tandon to Nawaz Sharif” written on it. The photographs of this missile surfaced yet again as Raveena Tandon’s fans celebrate her birthday today.
In order to return the dead bodies of Indian soldiers martyred in the 1999 Indo-Pakistan Kargil War, the Pakistan Army demanded @MadhuriDixit and @TandonRaveena , in response, the @adgpi sent the missile by writing the #FromRaveenaTandonToNawazSarif.#raveenatandon 🎂👍 pic.twitter.com/4CQizkSQc6— SAGAR (kika) 🇮🇳 (@iam_ocean6) October 26, 2021
The stunner debuted in Bollywood in 1991 and initially hesitated to wear glamourous clothes and do intimate scenes in front of the camera. But eventually, she decided to take the plunge and it was her sexy avatar in Mohra that helped her gain superstardom which she had been yearning for. Her songs 'Tu Cheez Badi hai mast mast' and 'Tip tip barsa paani' from Mohra are considered iconic are a hot favourite with young dancers who repeatedly try to recreate their magic on dance reality shows.
Apart from appearing at events and on reality shows occasionally, Raveena has also returned to acting after a break of a few years. She will be next seen in the much-awaited KGF2 with Sandalwood superstar Yash and Sanjay Dutt.
