Rani Mukerji opens up on keeping daughter Adira away from public eye!
The most recent Koffee with Karan episode was an exciting and fun-filled rollercoaster! We had the pleasure of seeing the charismatic cousins Rani Mukerji and Kajol grace the Koffee couch recently. The episode was a riot of fun thanks to their vibrant banter, playful leg pulling of Karan Johar, and unceasing laughter. There were genuine moments in amongst the jokes. Rani Mukerji talked candidly about how she managed to keep her daughter Adira out of the spotlight in spite of the constant presence of paparazzi.
She openly shared the reasoning behind this decision and gave insight into why she decided to keep Adira out of the spotlight.
During the interview, Karan Johar asked about Rani Mukerji's effective method of protecting her daughter Adira from the media, pointing out that no one has ever seen a picture of her. In response, the actress humorously revealed, "I simply tell them not to snap the baby's picture. They look into my eyes, and they get scared."
She further added, "Right from the time Adira was born, I have to thank all the paparazzi and all the media people; they really love me because they kind of respected that. They know how Adi (Aditya Chopra) is. It was our decision together that we didn't want Adira to be photographed because we have a different idea of how we want to raise Adira, so that she doesn't feel privileged or she doesn't feel very special at school, and she feels like any other kid. And she doesn't get any extra attention. That was something Adi and I wanted for her. That would only happen if she would not be photographed."
Rani also mentioned how important it was to go abroad with Adira for the first time that year. "Please don't take pictures of the baby," she asked the paparazzi, and they complied with her request that day. Since then, parents have waited patiently for the child to enter the airport safely each time she flies before taking any pictures.
