The society is always there to judge every single action and step of yours and find flaws in them. No matter, how genuine and honest your action would be there will be people who would question your integrity. Girls are bought up with millions of do’s and don’ts in our culture only because of log kya kahenge. This thought has made so many of us do things which we would forbid doing, but nonetheless, that is how society makes us function. The mothers of this era are the ones, who always try to find a balance between the kids and their upbringing without discriminating them. Bollywood’s Shehar Ki Ladki, Raveena Tandon is one fine mother, who has not only created harmony between her adopted and biological kids but also has passed her wisdom to them, creating a perfect balance.

Raveena Tandon had walked down the aisle and had gotten married on February 22, 2004, with Anil Thadani. However, Raveena is not just known for her acting skills, dance moves and enthusiastic nature, but also for inspiring everyone by adopting two girls, Chhaya and Pooja Tandon at the age of 21. Apart from two adopted daughters, she has two biological kids, Ranbir & Rasha Thadani. Thus, she is blessed with 4 kids, and what could be more magical than that. On the occasion of Mother’s Day, Raveena interacted with SpotboyE and talked about her motherhood journey.
Raveena talked about the equation she shared with her daughters, Chhaya and Pooja after adopting them, and said, "We discussed everything under the sun. From boyfriends, crushes, my life- good or bad. I told them learn from my mistakes, I told them whatever was happening in my life. Got them ready for the reality, never sugar coated the world to them." When asked, how she managed her daughters when they were growing up, Raveena shared the late-night culture that she has at her home. "I have given my daughters the freedom of keeping the company they want, but have always told them, whoever is coming to drop you home, should come upstairs and meet me."
The happy and proud mother also discussed how well her daughters, Chhaya and Pooja are doing in their life, and said, "It's so nice to see them seize the opportunities life gave them. My elder daughter, Chhaya, who is just 11 years younger to me, is in South Africa, working for a pharmaceutical company. She is a VP, has her own bungalow, is living a great life. It feels so good that they got the chance to empower themselves." (Also Read: Arjun Rampal Wishes His GF, Gabriella On Her First Mother's Day On Behalf Of Their Son, Arik Rampal)
Raveena was also asked about her husband, Anil Thadani’s reaction to her adopted daughters, who happen to be an integral part of her life. She revealed that Anil knew about them from starting and he was man enough and understood and accepted them. In her words, "Anil knew it all along. When I was dating him, for 2 months, he obviously was aware. He was man enough to take charge of everything. He started handling everything related to them- he took over from me. I pray to god, I want him back in every life I take birth in. But a lot of people didn't know about the girls. I never held press conferences, announcing I have adopted. Only when they passed Standard 10th, I started taking them out for shoots and events, and then gradually people started coming to know about them."
Raveena also talked about how she did not want the yellow journalism to take over her adopted daughters, and thus didn’t bring them out to the world earlier. "In the 90s, there were a few bitchy journalists, who would pull you down and say, 'Oh, she is doing all this to show and get publicity,' So, even when you are doing something with a genuine intension, it would backfire, which is why I didn't take them out a lot. However, now things are so different. People appreciate you and your acts." (Don't Miss: Rekha After Being 'The Other Woman', Married Mukesh Agarwal For Status Of A Wife, Ended Up In Tears)
