Actress Raveena Tandon was well ahead of her time when she decided to adopt two girls at the age of 21. Both her daughters, Pooja and Chhaya, are now mothers and the actress is Nani.)
Speaking about becoming a grandmother at age 46, Raveena said in an interview: “Technically, the moment the word comes, people think you’re 70 to 80. When I had taken my girls, I was 21 and the oldest was 11. We actually only have an 11-year difference . “
He further told Miss Malin, “She’s had a baby, so she’s more than a friend, but technically I’m a mother-like character to her in her life. It’s the same as Grandma, so that’s it.”
The actor had adopted Pooja and Chhaya in the 90s. “This happened before Mohra (1994). My mother and I visited orphanages like Asha Sadan on our weekends. When my cousin died, he left behind two young daughters, Chaya and Pooja. I didn’t like the way their guardians treated them, so I took them home with me. I didn’t think much about it. It came to me naturally. I wanted to give the girls the life they deserved. I’m not a multi-billion dollar, but I’m doing my best to help, ”he had said in an interview.
Speaking about how society experienced adoption at the time, he had added: “Some wondered what would happen to two children when I got married. They said no one would marry me when I came with the extra luggage. But I said I have a package deal: my kids, my dog, and me. Take it or leave it. Fortunately, my husband and father-in-law point out the girls. “Raveena has a daughter Rasha and a son with Ranbirvardha’s husband Anil.
