Most celebrity parents have always said that it was they who had signed up for the fame and media scrutiny, and not their kids. So, they prefer paparazzi and media to let their kids live a normal life away from the scrutiny and cameras hounding them everywhere. Working in the entertainment industry, it becomes challenging for parents to keep their kids away from the limelight but it is impressive that some have successfully managed it for years. Rani Mukerji and Aditya Chopra are one such parents, who have kept their daughter, Adira Chopra, away from the limelight.

It was on April 21, 2014, Rani Mukerji had tied the knot with the well-acclaimed director of B-town, Aditya Chopra, in an intimate wedding ceremony. Rani and Aditya had a secret wedding and a-year-and-a-half post their marital bliss, the couple was blessed with a baby girl, Adira Chopra, a name which is an amalgamation of their names. Rani and Aditya want Adira to have a ‘normal childhood’, so they keep her away from the shutterbugs and let her enjoy simple joys discreetly.
It was on December 9, five years ago, when Rani Mukerji and Aditya Chopra were blessed with their little angel and since then, fans have been eagerly waiting for the couple to share Adira Chopra’s pictures. But because of Aditya’s strict no-photo policy, Adira cannot be seen even in her birthday bash pictures. Rani likes to host lavish parties for her little girl’s birthdays and 2020 was no different. Rani hosted a private party at their residence for Adira’s fifth birthday. Adira’s Barbie-themed birthday bash had her name printed on the main entrance, the residence was decked up with lights and her celeb friends were spotted making their way to the celebration. Soha Ali Khan with Inaaya Naumi Kemmu, Neha Dhupia with Mehr Dhupia Bedi, Yash Johar and Roohi Johar, Tusshar Kapoor with Laksshya Kapoor, Rani’s mother, Krishna Mukherjee and Aditya Chopra were snapped outside the Chopra residence.
Last year, when Adira Chopra had turned 4, Rani Mukerji had hosted a star-studded unicorn-themed bash for her daughter. From Neil Nitin Mukesh’s daughter, Nurvi, Sameera Reddy with Hans Reddy and Nyra Reddy, Shah Rukh Khan with AbRam Khan, Karan Johar with Yash Johar and Roohi Johar, Shahid Kapoor’s little ones, Misha Kapoor and Zain Kapoor to Tusshar Kapoor with Laksshya Kapoor and Adira’s maasi, Tanisha Mukerji, everyone was snapped having a gala time at the bash. But there was not even a single picture of the birthday girl, Adira. (Also Read: MS Dhoni's Daughter, Ziva Singh Dhoni Goes Out With Mommy, Sakshi Dhoni On A Salon Date)
Revealing the reason behind excluding the photos of the birthday girl from her own party, Rani Mukerji had once stated in an interview with the Hindustan Times, “It is single handedly my husband’s decision. In this, he has no interest in taking my advice or my opinion. This department, he is like NO, I don’t want her pictures. And for me, it’s very important that when you are in a relationship, there are times when I would say that okay, this is it and you have to listen and the same with him. You choose your battles.I keep telling him that one fine day she is going to be clicked and ironically, she got clicked with the father and thank god it was not me. I would have got killed. But, I saw Adi’s look when that happened and believe me that everybody in my family and house were relieved that it was through Adi.”
Aditya Chopra and Rani Mukerji’s little one, Adira Chopra is quite an artist as in January 2020, we had gotten a glimpse of the same. When Aditya’s brother and Adira’s chachu, Uday Chopra had turned a year older, to make his day extra special, his niece had given him an adorable gift. Adira had painted a ‘Star Wars’ inspired birthday card for her chachu, and Uday had captioned it as “My little niece made this for me today. The force is strong with her!!!” (Also Read: Natasa Stankovic Shares A Cute Video With Son, Agastya While Waiting To Meet Hubby, Hardik Pandya)
