The actress was at a suburban coffee shop to have a close up of up-market women scouring for toy boys to prep for her upcoming role
Some actors leave no stone unturned to make sure their on screen characters look true to life. And Raveena Tandon did just that, going to a popular Lokhandwala, Andheri coffee shop to learn the ways of up-market
Mumbai women who pick up toy boys from similar city joints.
After filmmaker Sudipto Chattopadhyay narrated the scene of his upcoming film, where Ravs plays a high society lady on the lookout for a hunk, she decided to experience it first hand. Although she did not believe that
such incidents actually take place, Ravs arrived wearing a burkha to catch the women as they got busy picking up young men.
Sudipto explains, `When I narrated the premise of the film, she refused to believe that these housewives and up-market Mumbai woman come and pick up these toy boys and hunks from outside this particular coffee
She said that she wanted to check it out but she being a star it was difficult for us to go there. So, she came wearing a burkha and sat there.`
It was only after she witnessed the act that she believed in what the filmmaker had been saying all along.
Sudipto adds, `In fact, she walked down the street and stood close by to listen to what they were
speaking and realised that they were negotiating for money. It was a funny incident and we laugh over it whenever we remember the incident.`
