Earlier, in an interview with a news portal, Raveena had shared that her love for wildlife began at an early age. The actress went on her first-ever safari with her father to Bandipur National Park in Karnataka and Mudumalai Tiger Reserve in Tamil Nadu. From then onward, her love story with the jungle started. The actress added that she has been to the forests worldwide but there is no romance in any of these jungles as in the Indian jungles. Raveena has always worked for animals and our environment. According to her, maximum abuse in the world happens to women and children and then to animals. She stated that she has been been working for women and children as well as animals all along.
Meanwhile, on the work front, Raveena will next be seen in Arbaaz Khan’s ‘Patna Shukla’.
