From a flower of stones to a stone of flowers

About five years is what it takes for the seven-year itch to bite actresses, before they return to life under the arc lamps and gleig lights. The year of the lord 2012 is what the ravishing Raveena Tandon has chosen.

The Patthar ke Phool girl is back where she belongs. She has a TV show of her own and popped up on Friday as the brand ambassador for a jewellery show in Bangalore. Yet another exhibit in churumuri‘s selfless service against the commodification of women.

Not that we mind.
