All through the 1990s she was among the crème de la creme of Bollywood actresses. She was the National Award winner for the Best Actress in 2001 for the Kalpana Lajmi-directed film Daman. She married film distributor Anil Thadani in 2004. From 2006 to 2011, Raveena hasn't done any concrete acting assignment concentrating instead on her role as an activist for PETA and other causes.

She is making her comeback this year after the long hiatus. On the cards are three films including the Amitabh Bachchan starrer 'Bbuddah... Hoga Terra Baap'.
