Raveena Tandon does not like the word 'comeback'

Actress Raveena Tandon, whose next film Maatr deals with crime against women in society, says the clear intention behind making the film is to create awareness among the audience.
Speaking at the trailer launch of the film, Tandon said: "Intention behind Maatr is not commercial success but to spread a message of crimes against women. This is the need of the hour, where people should start changing their mindset about women and take action against such criminals instead of shaming the victims based on the length of their clothes."
She was present at the trailer launch along with the film's director Ashtar Sayed and producers Anjum Rizvi and Manoj Adhikari.
Tandon, who last appeared in a cameo role in Anurag Kashyap's Bombay Velvet, said she does not like the word "comeback" as she has become very choosy about her films.
"I used to work in 30 films in a year during the early stage of my career. But now I have reached a point where I will do films that I completely believe in and I have no idea what I am doing next after Maatr. So how many times should I make my comeback? I really do not like using that word," the Mohra actress said.
As there are many upcoming women-centric films like Noor, Mom, Haseena besides the latest Naam Shabana, according to Tandon, "It is a great time in Indian cinema where so many women-oriented films are being made."
"I would say that this (phase) should continue," she said
Maatr will be released on 21 April.
