Raveena Tandon Gets Prestigious Padma Shri Award

Actress Raveena Tandon discusses receiving the Padma Shri from President Draupadi Murmu in front of her entire family in an exclusive conversation. At a ceremony held yesterday at Rashtrapati Bhavan in Delhi, President Draupadi Murmu presented Raveena Tandon with the Padma Shri, the fourth highest civilian honor. The actor acknowledges that receiving the honour was a difficult experience for her because she was missing her late father, Ravi Tandon.

“It definitely was an emotional moment for me because it was something that my father had always dreamt and thought that it is going to be a proud moment (for him) whenever I get the Padma Shri honour,” explains Raveena, who traveled quickly to the capital to accept the honor.

She continued, “I did get the honour, but unfortunately, he is not here to see it. So, getting the honour was mixed emotions for me. It came with a bit of happiness and a bit of more happiness. More happiness was when I was thinking about him and saying (to myself) that at least, I fulfilled my dad’s dream”.
