A couple of pictures of Rani Mukerji’s daughter began doing the rounds on social media. The picture was that of a new-born and it was fake.
No one quite believed that it was Adira but since the Instagram account was titled ‘iamranimukerji’ so we thought it’s genuine. We thought it was the actress’s private photograph and assumed it was indeed little Adira.
Of course, we already knew, both Rani & Aditya Chopra are social media shy so it seemed out-of-place that they’d suddenly start posting pictures of their daughter who was born last year. Apart from the pictures of a baby girl, the account also shared pictures of a pink nursery room.
The images were shared and reshared till it went viral. Aditya Chopra and Rani Mukerji issued a joint statement through the spokesperson for Yash Raj Films saying the account was fake and the pictures were too.
The statement from YRF read: “This is to inform you that Rani Mukerji is not on any social media platform and has never been. There are several fake accounts that keep cropping up we would like to request you to not pay any heed to them or the content they put up as it is all fake.”
Rani and Aditya had been in a relationship for three years before tying the knot in 2014 in a private ceremony. The couple is notoriously recluse and never publicly confirmed their relationship. Adira was born in December 2015. The actress likes to keep her private life away from public attention, but her off-screen life has been subject to substantial media coverage for years. Rani Mukerji is also involved with several humanitarian causes including women issue and advocation of children’s right. As for now Rani is not shooting any film and is concentrating entirely on her family.
