New Delhi: Adira Chopra, daughter of Rani Mukerji and Aditya Chopra, is all of one today and, as a birthday gift, she received a letter from mommy which was posted by Yash Raj Films on Twitter. In the letter, signed Rani Mukerji Chopra, the 38-year-old actress writes of her hopes and fears for her baby daughter, of the anxiety and the joy that motherhood brings. "Having a baby is so scary because you suddenly stop living for yourself, you start living for your child, as she has given birth to you... A mother," writes Rani, "I have become much calmer, more patient and more forgiving. It happened overnight one day suddenly." The letter also has the first picture of Adira, with her mother. Camera shy Aditya Chopra is not in it.

In her letter, Rani said the she hopes to raise Adira "beautifully." She writes: "I hope I can bring up Adira beautifully, without any fears... brave... wise... clever... disciplined... well mannered. I want everyone to be proud of her."

Rani Mukerji and Aditya Chopra have fiercely shielded their daughter from the public gaze so far. Recently, mid-day reported an incident when Rani allegedly yelled at lensmen for getting too close to Adira. She demanded they stop snapping her young daughter. Earlier, a picture purporting to be of Adira also appeared on social media and was later revealed to be a fake. Rani's representative had clarified then: "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."
