A daughter is the biggest gift for a mother. When a woman holds her baby girl in her arms, she knows that she is not just holding a little being, but her future best friend, who will understand her at every phase of life. They can be each other's biggest cheerleaders, critics and whatnot. With a baby girl, a woman gets to live her life all over again and she makes sure to give her the best of everything. And Bollywood actress, Raveena Tandon is a perfect mother to her darling daughter, Rasha Thadani.

Raveena, who is extremely fond of girls, is one of the first B-town divas, who had adopted her cousin's daughters, Pooja and Chhaya and gave them her last name 'Tandon'. We remember once in an interview with the Verve magazine, Raveena had shared that when people used to taunt her that she comes with the excess baggage of two children, she would simply say that she comes in a package deal with her children and her dogs. And then she had gotten married to Anil Thadani and became a proud mother of two kids.
On March 16, 2005, Raveena got blessed with a baby girl, whom she had lovingly named Rasha. And now her daughter has grown into a gorgeous young girl and mommy Raveena cannot believe it. On December 4, 2019, the actress took to her Instagram handle and shared a cute picture of her daughter, Rasha Thadani chilling with superstar, Salman Khan. Alongside the picture, she wrote, "How time flies. Down memory lane, when @officialrashathadani was all 5 years old, hanging with uncle Salman. Must say he is the best ever with kids."

For those who don't know, Raveena's 14-year-old angel, Rasha is a pro in boxing. The actress had once shared her video on Instagram while she was practising like Mary Kom. Raveena had captioned the video as “No One just No One messes with Mah Baybee. My little #marykom”.
In an interview with the DNA, Raveena had talked about balancing mom duties and her professional work. She had shared, "Probably. Right now, it has become a little difficult because everything has come together. I shoot for this show I judge, there are my film’s promotions and a music video shoot. I might be short on time, but otherwise, I do space out my day really well. I know how to balance it well otherwise. I’d say, being a mother has not actually changed my choices, but enhanced them. That would be the right way to put it because after having Raasha and Ranbirvardhan, I look for a different kind of emotional connect with anything I do."

Raveena had also talked about her daughter, Rasha and how she gives her valuable opinion on her dresses. The actress had stated, "Raasha’s not on social media yet. She is just 12. There’s a right age for that as well, for that kind of exposure. When she is 14 or 15, we will see. Right now, when she watches me go out to shoot or watches my episodes on TV, I definitely get my fair share of comments — what I should be doing with my hair or not and stuff like that. She has her opinions on the dresses I wear and is extremely fascinated by the idea of make-up. So whenever I am getting ready and doing my make-up, she generally comes and watches me or studies along when I’m doing it. "
Raveena had also revealed that she shares few things with her daughter, but not the jewellery and clothes as she is still very young. In the actress' own words, "We have already been doing a bit of it. Not sharing clothes and jewellery that way because as I said, she’s still very young. But on her birthday this year, I took her for a week to New York. That was her birthday gift. We went there just for shopping and it was only her and me. We had some mommy-daughter time. We got the same shoes, same bags and had a blast. We will remember this trip forever. Then, we were stuck in the middle of a blizzard so it was all the more adventurous."

Well, daughters grow faster than we can ever think and Raveena's daughter has definitely turned into a graceful young girl!
A mother and her child's relationship is one of the most pious bonds that ever exists. Something, which truly suffices to the term 'selfless love'. You may often get a bang from your mom, but at the end of the day when you will cry yourself to sleep, it will beRead More
