Actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan says her three-year-old daughter Aaradhya has now got used to the paparazzi and has adapted well.
Initially, the Bachchan family had kept Aaradhya away from media glare but the shutterbugs still managed to click her on a number of occasions.
When asked how Aaradhya reacts to the limelight, Aishwarya said, "Every time we walk out of the airport, house, there are people around, camera is around. I guess, I think she was born to believe it is like this, this is normal to her. The mother in me will be protective."
"Media wants bytes, photos...so I am going to be protective about her. It is a natural instinct. From her end there is no major chatter," she said.
Abhishek and Aishwarya got married in 2007 and welcomed their first child on November 16, 2011.
Now that Aishwarya is making a comeback to films with 'Jazbaa', she said motherhood has not changed her choice of doing movies.
"Motherhood has not altered my choices when it comes to films. Motherhood did not change things for me. I have always done mix bag of things like 'Devdas', 'Raincoat', 'Dhoom 2', 'Robot', 'Guzaarish', and others," she said.
"I am grateful that I got good opportunities. I do take risks. I am grateful that the audience and industry people are accepting me in different kind of films," she added.
The 41-year-old actress will soon start working on Karan Johar's 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil' co-starring Ranbir Kapoor and Anushka Sharma.
Karan had always wanted to work with Aishwarya but things did not materialise.
"I would have said yes to Karan for his films but things did not happen due to my work schedule at that time. We had hoped to work together many times. Working with Karan on 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil' will be special," she said.
"It is a beautiful love story that he is saying in a real way. It is a wonderful to have a love story told in a different way. I am looking forward to work on it. It has a lovely team including Ranbir and Anushka," she added.
