The 'Mast Mast' girl Raveena Tandon is all set to make her Bollywood comeback with the upcoming film Maatr which revolves around a mother who seeks revenge against those who have wronged her daughter.
In a recent interview with Deccan Chronicle when quizzed why she took up the film Raveena quipped, "The theme of Maatr is an issue very close to my heart because my blood boils every time I read in the papers about a woman being violated. I met the mother of the Delhi 2012 gangrape victim, she told me that it's only for a short time that people bother when someone is raped. Then it's just back to business."
Raveena who is proud mother of three daughters, when asked if she fears for their safety, replied, "I never taught them to be timid. In fact, I have asked them to fight back. Are we supposed to walk in this fear all the time? This has to change somewhere, so I also want to be part of the noise that makes that change."

Speaking of her daughters, she became a mother to two of them before her marriage as she adopted them. With many B-Town celebrities going the route of adoption and surrogacy, the latest one being filmmmaker Karan Johar Raveena said, "I advise adoption over surrogacy. I believe that making someone a part of your life through adoption provides a deeper sense of gratification. I feel so proud when I see my girls and what they have made of their lives. Of course, you can go ahead and have biological kids, but to adopt a child is the greatest gift that you can give any child."
That's quite a noble thought, isn't it? What do you guys have to say about it?
