Megastar Amitabh Bachchan celebrated his 79th birthday on Monday (October 11) and wishes poured in from all corners for the legend. Big B's daughter-in-law and actress Aishwarya Rai Bachchan surprised her fans with an adorable picture of the senior actor posing with granddaughter Aaradhya Bachchan.
Taking to Instagram, Aishwarya wrote, “HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAREST DARLING DADAJIII-Pa LOVE YOUUU FOREVER AND BEYOND.”
Check out the picture below:
The picture came hours after Abhishek Bachchan dropped a video describing his father as a ‘great actor’ and a ‘perfect role model’, a ‘great mentor’ and the ‘best father’.
His caption read: “My hero, my idol, my friend, my father! Happy birthday Dad.Love you. @amitabhbachchan #amitabhbachchan”
Celebrities like Genelia D'Souza, Sonali Bendre, Esha Deol, Bobby Deol, Chitrangda Singh, Riteish Deshmukh, and Kunal Kapoor among others took to the comment section and wished the legend a very happy birthday.
Meanwhile, Amitabh's other granddaughter, Shweta's daughter Navya Naveli Nanda shared two unseen throwback pictures to wish him. She wrote “nana (maternal grandfather)” in the caption on her Instagram Stories.
Aishwarya, along with Abhishek Bachchan and Aaradhya, returned from the Paris-Dubai trip right in time to ring in Amitabh Bachchan’s birthday. The family flew to Paris - for the Paris Fashion Week Womenswear Spring/Summer 2022. She also attended Dubai Expo 2020 where she took part in the ‘Stand-up Against Street Harassment’ event.
Amitabh Bachchan, on the other hand, dropped pictures from a puja ceremony at his home and expressed gratitude towards his well-wishers for their love and blessings.
Earlier, Mr Bachchan had himself got his age wrong when he shared a post to ring in the birthday celebrations around midnight as he shared a picture and wrote, "walking into the 80th.” It was his daughter Shweta Bachchan Nanda who corrected him that it was actually his 79th birthday, not 80th.
