Rani doesn't share her daughter Adira's picture on social media. 

Why does Rani keep her daughter Adira away from the media glare?

When she appeared on Koffee With Karan with Kajol. She spoke about why she doesn't let paps click Adira.

When Karan Johar asked the actress, "Nobody has ever got a photograph of hers. I want to know, how do you manage this," Rani replied, "I tell them. Don't take Adira's pictures. They look at my eyes and they get scared." Rani also took a moment to thank the paparazzi for respecting her daughter's privacy and added, "That they know. Right from the time Adira was born, I think. And I have to thank all the paparazzi and media people. They really love me because they kind of respected that."

Rani Mukerji explained why she and her husband Aditya Chopra do not want their daughter to be photographed and said, "And they know how Adi is and 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 special in school. And that would happen only if she would not be photographed. So it was the first year when I was travelling with Adira and I told them please don't take baby's pictures and they kind of respected that." 

Why's Aditya Chopra rarely photographed by the paparazzi at the airport?

 Karan Johar asked Rani Mukerji, "Can you tell us the secret route that maybe we can also adopt at times." Rani Mukerji explained, "No, actually he is really simple when he moves around. So, I'm the honeybee. I've to make way for my child and my husband."

Work front

Rani was last seen in the drama Mrs Chattrjee Vs Norway. Directed by Ashima Chibber, the film also starred Anirban Bhattacharya, Jim Sarbh and Neena Gupta.
