Onir's next, Shab and she told: "The first time I actually got to know the details about my role was when Onir was explaining it to someone else. All I got was a call where he said I am making a film and you have to be in it. He is a dear friend and that's why I agreed. Later I found out that the film's cast had workshops and when I asked Onir about that, he said tumhe kya workshop chahiye? That's how it is when you work with friends. Koi seriously hi nahi leta."
So far as film Bombay Velvet is concerned, Raveena said: "Anurag is another close friend and we go way back to Shool days. I got a very excited phone call from him about the movie and he was like, 'You have to be in it and I am not listening to a no at all'. Raveena further told that "I don't do these films for the money, it's just for my friends. For me, I am happily married and I have my two kids who I have to run around and take care of. I am happy being at home and taking care of those roles. I don't have to work because I want to see myself on screen. There are many scripts that come to me, but I am not interested. I am not in that space where I have to work for money, or my husband is out of a job or I want to re-invent and re-enter films and be glamorous and live in the limelight forever. I don't live in that sort of a dream and I am not delusional."
