Rani Mukerji on Adira: “I don’t want her to be photographed constantly”

BizAsia Correspondent



While it may seem the children of many famous Bollywood stars capture more attention than their parents, Rani Mukerji and Aditya Chopra want to keep their daughter Adira Chopra out of the spotlight.

On Neha Dhupia’s talk show ‘BFF’s with Vogue’, Mukerji shed light on the topic as she stated, “I want Adira to grow up normally. (Otherwise) you get unwanted and undeserved attention without having achieved anything in life. I want Adira to be treated like any other child in school. Aditya and I don’t want her to be photographed constantly”.

In terms of the film industry front, Mukerji is currently working on the promotion of her new release ‘Hichki’ which is based on the story which follows the journey about a loving, caring teacher who suffers from Tourette syndrome.

On the topic of Mukerji making her comeback, she said “I was looking for a script that would challenge and excite me, and Hitchki came my way. Each one of us has a weakness that pulls us back, it could be a disability or any condition but if we just look at it as simply a hiccup, we can emerge as a winner. It won’t come in the way of achieving your dreams. Hitchki is built on this positive premise and I have decided to take it up”.
