In the interview with Filmfare, Raveena was asked if she knows the reason behind this rumor of her and Dravid dating. She said, “I don’t know how the whole thing started.

The poor fellow called up the next day to apologize. It’s ridiculous.”

While finalizing the interview, it was asked if it will be now awkward if she meet Dravid. To which she replied, “To an extent, yes, it spoils relationships, however polite it is. I will try to be normal if at all I meet him, but I don’t think I will bump into him.” She continued, “Don’t you think it’s high time to take control of situations? Yeah, I will do that, but it will take another six to eight months for me to properly get into that frame of mind. To stop all this I need to see somebody. But work is my focus now.”
