Despite the media’s agitation over her daughter Aradhya, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is bent on taking her mother roles seriously and does not want her daughter to get hassled.

Born last November, Aradhya has been the attention of the camera a few times, most recently at her grandfather Amitabh Bachchan’s birthday bash. But Aishwarya still says “She was a part of the birth day celebrations. I was on double duty as she was in and out of sleep. But that is ok, I have no complaints. I love her very much. I love to spend time with her,” Aishwarya told reporters here, at an event.

“I think it is the job of media to take pictures or bytes. But as a mother, as a family, we were just trying to be protective. She is too small and new to this world. I did not want her to get hassled. It was just a natural instinct of being protective.”
