Raveena Tandon is miffed with the media
We don't know what fashion critics' take is on this but actress Raveena Tandon isn't happy with media for criticising actresses for repeating a dress.
'What is it with some of the media? in one page pounding us the state of poverty in india, on next fleecing An actress for repeating her dress. So(they)expect us to have a zillion dresses, wear one then fling it outa the window or donate, reminds of a dialogue from jaane bhi do yaaron. Jaane bhi do yaaron, fav film, thoda khaao toda phekon!!or r all celebs birdbrained spendthrifts, or become under pressure by fashion police. Wonder how this influences young minds who put pressure on their middleclass working parents, for more pocket money to not repeat clothes,' she tweeted.
Shabana Azmi also agrees with Raveena. 'Why r stars poked fun at if they repeat a dress? Surely a dress can only be a favorite if u repeat it!I wear what I like many times over,' she updated.
