Raveena Tandon on contributing to society 

"We all have done commercial hits in our lives but I have always believed that society has given us everything -- name, fame and status -- and at some point in our lives, we should contribute to society and this is the medium that we know the best," Tandon told PTI in an interview.

 

"Using this medium, if I can create a certain amount of awareness or deliver a message that at least brings the conversation to the table, then I would be like, 'Ok, I have done a little bit of my contribution. That's why once or twice a year, I pick up that one topic which I believe will make a difference or something that we need to talk about," she added.
