Rani: Adira is an understanding daughter already
Rani Mukerji and her husband Aditya Chopra have always remained low-key about their personal lives. The couple are parents to their 7-year-old daughter Adira. As Rani is busy promoting her recently released film Mrs Chatterjee Vs Norway, the actress spoke about the challenges which come with parenting Adira as they are both working parents.
She said that Adira is an understanding daughter already but as a mother, she made a conscious decision to be able to balance work life with her child. She said that the pandemic came to her as a blessing in disguise as it was easier for her to travel with Adira who had began home schooling.
“When I do a film now, it will be challenging. Adira is now in 1st standard, going to second standard, so obviously, we cannot let her bunk school. So, I have to start developing the strength to be able to be away from her. She also has to kind of be prepared for that. I will have to see what happens in the future about it,” Rani told India Today.
She further said that she decided to make one film a year because it is important for her to go back home, spend time with Adira and do homework with her. She is grateful to be able in a position to plan her day accordingly since many mother aren’t able to do so.
“There are days when I don’t have the choice to go back home on time, so when you choose to be a professional, there are certain sacrifices that you have to prepare for. That is what you need to make your child understand. I think they understand if you make them understand. In my case, both Adi and I are working parents, so Adira is having a good upbringing in understanding that she has two professional parents,” she added.
