- Adira celebrated her second birthday last Saturday
- Adira and Aditya Chopra were conspicuous by their absence
- It seems that the no-pictures diktat came from Adira's father
This should not be very surprising because Rani Mukerji and reclusive Yash Raj boss Aditya Chopra have fiercely shielded Adira from the paparazzi ever since she was born in 2015. In a Facebook chat on her 39th birthday in March this year, Rani revealed that her husband - who is almost never photographed himself - is not in favour of Adira's photos being made public. "I am not on social media. I don't post pictures of my daughter because my husband is a very private person and I respect that." Having said that, she also added: "Also, I don't like saying no to my fans, especially when they ask me to post pictures." In the rarest of rare occasions, Adira and Rani Mukerji were spotted together at the Mumbai airport earlier this year.
The camera and media shy Aditya Chopra is hardly ever spotted at parties and get-togethers. We had almost stopped believing in his existence until Katrina Kaif (also one of the guests at the birthday party) provided evidence to the contrary with this Instagram post earlier this year.
Rani shared the first photo of her baby daughter along with a lovely note for her on Adira's first birthday, posting it on the Yash Raj account.
