Raveena Tandon is one of the most beautiful and talented actresses in Bollywood. The diva never shies away from mesmerising her fans with her divine beauty and jaw-dropping acting talents. Talking about her professional life, Raveena will be next seen in the movie, Ghudchadi. For those who don't know, Raveena was 21 years old when she adopted her cousins' daughters, Pooja and Chaya, who were 11 and 8, respectively. Later, the diva tied the knot with the love of her life, Anil Thadani, in 2004.
Raveena's daughter, Chaya got married to the man of her dreams in a Hindu-Catholic ceremony in Goa on January 25, 2016, at the age of 21. In a recent interview with Lehren Retro, Raveena was asked if she was okay with the inter-caste marriage of her daughter. To this, the actress said that she was absolutely okay with the same. Raveena also shared some unheard anecdotes about her daughter's wedding.
The actress said that Chaya's interfaith wedding was beautiful and added that her daughter wore her chooda along with her gown. Sharing more details about the same, Raveena stated that she walked Chaya down the aisle, which was another breaking of the taboo. Raveena also mentioned that the mangalsutra was tied post the vows, and even sindoor was put in the church. Calling it a beautiful amalgamation of the two cultures, Raveena shared:
"It was such a beautiful interfaith wedding. We did her chooda ceremony. She wore her chooda on her gown. I gave her away, I walked her down the aisle, that was another breaking of taboo. The mangalsutra was tied after the vows were taken. And sindoor was put in the church so it was an absolute correct mix of how it should be."

In the same interview, Raveena Tandon opened up about her equation with her adopted daughters, Pooja and Chaya. For the unversed, Pooja got married in 2011. However, talking about her bonding with her two daughters, Raveena said it's a lifetime commitment and everything is involved, including love and emotion. Talking more about the same, Raveena stated that Pooja and Chaya are the older siblings of Rasha and Ranbirvardhan. Raveena said:
"It’s a lifetime commitment and there are relationships, there are bonds and there’s love and there’s emotion and there’s everything that’s involved so yes there is definitely a bond that we all share. They are the older siblings to my younger ones."
Further, in the same interview, Raveena Tandon shared that her husband, Anil Thadani, always knew about her adopted daughters and thought it to be fantastic. Sharing what kind of relationship Pooja and Chaya share with Anil, Raveena said that her hubby has always been involved when it came to her daughters' financial decisions, and her daughters call their father whenever they need any kind of help.
Soon after Raveena adopted Pooja and Chaya, there were speculations about the actress having the babies out of wedlock. However, reacting to the same in an old interview with Zoom, Raveena Tandon said there will always be trolls. Sharing if she had the babies out of wedlock, Raveena said that when she adopted the babies, they were 8 and 11 years old, whereas she was 21. So how could this be even true as per their age? If she had Pooja and Chaya out of wedlock, then she should have been 11 or 12 by that time, which is next to impossible, so these rumours were nothing but baseless.
