Raveena Tandon (born 26 October 1974) is an Indian actress, model and producer who works in Hindi films. She is the daughter of director Ravi Tandon, and was born and raised in Mumbai. She started her career in modelling and later made her acting debut in the 1991 action film Patthar Ke Phool, which won her the Filmfare Award for New Face of the Year.
Tandon was born in Bombay (present-day Mumbai) to Ravi Tandon and Veena Tandon. Tandon is a niece of character actor Mac Mohan and thus a cousin of Manjari Makijany, his daughter. She has a brother Rajiv Tandon, who was married to actress Rakhi Tandon. She is also a cousin of actress Kiran Rathod. She started her career as a model.
Tandon was chairperson of the Children's Film Society of India from 2003, but from 2004 the actress began to get complaints that she did not attend the organisation's meetings and that she was not involved with the activities set up by the society. In September 2005, Tandon resigned from her post citing personal reasons.
