Born on 18 May 1997 in the small city of Antwerp (Belgium) as a British citizen of Indian origin to parents, Dimple and Rajiv Mehta. Raveena is an elder sister to sister Kareena and brother Rajveer. As a child, Raveena showed fascinating interest in music and arts. She developed artistic skills at an early age and grew fond of music and instruments.
At the age of 5 years, her exposure to music was formalized through her school and by piano lessons. Her initial performances were made at school and community talent shows. Later, she started formal dance and singing lessons through coach Suchita Parte, whose recording "Designer Bliss" is one of the best selling Kabhi Jo Baadal Barse - Raveena Indian albums of all time.
Through encouragement from her family and uncle Vishal, she started recording her first album "From Deep Within" at Earth Studios in Mumbai (India). Tushar Parte, husband and composer of Suchita’s successful release, was in charge of the compositions. The result was a wonderful collection of songs full of love, hope and happiness, masterfully combining the deepest, most beautiful melodies, all of which will soon be in your hands. Raveena’s debut album, recorded when she was 12, not only contains one of the most rocking tunes you’ve ever heard; it’s also a mélange of extremely powerful and emotional songs from a variety of genre.
