Rani Mukerji travels sans Adira but with a special jewellery that reminds her of her daughter!
New mum Rani Mukerji was seen wearing a special necklace
New mum Rani Mukerji seems to be loving her new role and has been spending a lot of time at home caring for her one-year-old daughter, Adira.
In fact, it is only on special occasions that Mukerji is seen out and about. Whether it is a date with husband Aditya Chopra or wishing her baby girl a very happy birthday on social media, only on rare and personally important days is she seen out.
But now, the ever smiling Rani is giving her fans more reasons to be happy because she has been traveling quite a bit, sans Adira. The Bunty aur Babli actor was recently spotted at the Mumbai airport sans her daughter and as she smiled and posed for the shutterbugs, she flashed something extremely personal and sweet that reminds her of Adira.
Sporting a casual look, Mukerji was seen in her Dior sunglasses and a Louis Vuitton bag. But if you notice carefully, you'll also see a gold pendant with the words 'Adira' on them! Isn't that sweet.
The new mum surely keeps her daughter close to her heart, even though she is not seen out and about with her. In fact, even while sharing her happiness on her daughter turning one, Rani had categorically stated that motherhood had in fact changed her.
"My life has changed...but for the better"
“I love my baby Adira.. Can’t live or breathe without her.. My life has changed.. But for the better.. But having a baby is so scary.. Because you suddenly stop living for yourself.. You live for your child,, As she has given birth to you.. A mother..! I can’t sleep at night.. I can’t sleep in the day.. I often think about all the zillions of mothers who have given birth…,” wrote the doting mum.
She also stated that as a new mother, there were many things that concerned her and things that she was unable to handle.
“Do they all go through the same anxiety.. Or is it only me??? I salute all mothers! I am eternally grateful to the Almighty to have given me this blessing in the form of Adira!” wrote the new mum who recently got this special jewellery designed.

I will always be proud of her.. Encourage her to follow her heart.. Not get bullied ever.. not be pressurised for anything in life.. Be carefree always.. Happy and smiling.. Laughing wholeheartedly.. Her smile reaching her eyes…,” wrote the doting new mum.
Well, Rani is not alone. There are many new mums who want to impart these values in their daughters.
3 things we must teach our girls
- Be independent: This is quite an easy one to say, but difficult to teach, especially if you live in a patriarchal society such as ours. Teach your daughters that they do not need to depend on their fathers or brothers to take them around or even to protect them, they must learn to defend themselves and be independent.
- Stand on your ground: Sometimes being stubborn is not such a bad thing. Teach your daughters to stand on their ground and follow their instincts about right and wrong. Teach them that they must never let anybody tell them what they must or must not do in life.
- Learn to be an equal: Being feminist doesn't mean hating on the other gender or teaching girls that women are better. It is to understand that men and women are made equal and therefore, must be treated as such.
