Read on to know everything you should about the same.
In our exclusive conversation, we reminded Rani Mukerji of the time during Hichki promotions, when she spoke about leaving Adira for the first time and going for a shoot. When asked if it is still the same feeling and struggle, Rani said, “No because now my daughter is growing up and she is growing every day. She has become a very responsible child. She understands the fact that I go to work, her father goes to work and that’s what grown-up people do, that they go out and make a living for themselves. Because that is something we are imbibing in her at a very young age, that it is very important that as a grown-up you have to go out there and work to earn your place in the society.”
Rani Mukerji added how Adira has become her travel partner to shoots now. “Today she travels with me in most of my shoots. I try and kind of work around her timings, time of her school and try to work around her schedule and fit mine so I am comfortable. I think she has adapted to it beautifully. She has really been a wonderful travel partner to me now. First, it used to be my parents, and now Adira has taken that mantle,” Rani said.
We further asked her how do they plan to explain to Adira that she is born to these two enormous film personalities. Rani Mukerji said, “right now she gets too much attention, I don’t think she is ready to understand that there is anybody more important than her right now in our family.”
