Raveena Tandon to be awarded the Padma Shri

RRR’s composer MM Keeravani also in the list of Padma Shri winners

Published: 26th January 2023

Raveena Tandon has been conferred with the Padma Shri Award. The Government of India on Wednesday had released a list of the awardees, which includes RRR’s music composer MM Keeravani. They will receive the award later in the year.

Dedicating the award to her father Ravi Tandon, Raveena said, "(I am) Honoured and grateful. Thank you so much, Government of India, for acknowledging my contributions, my life, my passion and purpose - cinema and the arts, that allowed me to contribute, not only to the film industry, but also beyond. I thank all those who guided me through this journey of Art and Craft of Cinema - all those who held my hand through it, and all those who watched me from their place above. I owe this to my father."

This comes a day after Raveena was chosen as a delegate at the W20, which is the Women's Empowerment engagement wing at G20 India's Presidency.

Apart from Raveena and Keeravani, Tabla maestro Zakir Hussain and singer Vani Jairam have also been honoured with the Padma Vibhushan and the Padma Bhushan, respectively.
