As Adira came into Rani’s life, she changed

Adira was born to Rani and Aditya Chopra in 2015. She was named Adira, a combination of Aditya and Rani- Adi+Ra. As Adira came into Rani’s life, her life has been changed, she said, When I look back at my career, I feel I was another person. This is actually my new life because they say a child gives birth to a mother. I think motherhood has just made me a different person altogether. I think all women change when they become mothers. It’s an overnight thing. When I look back at my career of 22 years, I think now I am starting all over again. I am actually feeling fresh and new. Even the script that I have chosen, I think, it’s going to give me a lot of growth as an actor.

Letter to sweetheart Adira

Talking of her baby, Rani wrote, “I have become much calmer, more patient and more forgiving. It happened overnight one day suddenly I realized I have changed.. again for the better I guess. I hope I can bring Adira up beautifully. Without any fears.. Brave.. Wise.. Clever.. Disciplined.. Well Mannered. I want everyone to be proud of her.. Even if nobody is.. I will always be proud of her”
