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."

When Raveena Tandon reacted to the rumours of her having Pooja and Chaya out of wedlock

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.
