Actress Raveena Tandon adopted two girls, Pooja and Chhaya when she was only 21. It was in the year 1995. Chhaya has two children. So, Raveena is a grandmother now. In 2004, she married industrialist Anil Thadani and she gave birth to her daughter Rasha in March 2005 and then welcomed her son Ranbir in 2008.

On being called or referred to as grandmother or a ‘nani’ at the age of 46, Raveena told Miss Malini, “Technically, the minute that word comes, people think you’re 70-80 years old. When I had taken in my girls I was 21, and my eldest was 11. We actually just have an 11-year gap between us.”

She added, “She’s had her baby, so she’s more like a friend, but technically, I am a mom-like figure to her in her life. That’s what equates to being a grandmom, so that’s how it is.”

Earlier, in an interview with Pinkvilla, on adopting the two girls, Raveena said, “I didn’t like how their guardian would behave with them and some instinct in me pushed me to take them to my home. There was something about them that made me feel that me being a 21-year-old doesn’t matter. I can say it has been the best decision of my life. I cherish each and every moment I have shared with them, from taking them into my arms for the first time to walking them down the aisle.”

On the work front, Raveena will be seen in Yash starrer KGF Chapter 2 that also has Sanjay Dutt and Srinidhi Shetty. The movie is set to hit the screens on July 16, 2021.
