Aaradhya Bachchan turns five, big birthday bash on Sunday

Aishwarya and Abhishek Bachchan’s bundle of joy Aaradhya Bachchan turned five on Wednesday and a big birthday celebration will be held on November 20, Sunday for two reasons. First, Aaradhya will celebrate birthday with her grandfather Krishnaraj Rai this year as Aishwarya’s father will also be turned a year old on Nov 20 and secondly the party is arranged on Sunday so that the children might not have to miss school. Ash has planned a joint birthday celebration of his father and daughter at Prateeksha.

Last year, it was a princess-themed birthday for Aaradhya and this year also Aaradhya wants a pink dress on her D-day. The birthday will not only witness the presence of both Rai and Bachchan family and also noted Bollywood celebrities would turn up for the party to wish Aaradhya and Krishnaraj.  

The report quotes a source as saying, "Ash is busy planning Aaradhya's birthday party, which will be celebrated on November 20, as it's her father Krishnaraj Rai's birthday that day. The Rais and the Bachchans along with a host of B-Town celebs and their wives will be seen at Prateeksha joining in the double celebration. Aaradhya is thrilled to celebrate it with her nana this time and has been participating in the decorations herself. Krishnaraj's favorite dishes have been included on the menu."

"Aaradhya wants a princess theme so life-size cutouts will be there all over and everyone is expected to dress in pink as that's Aaradhya's favourite colour. Last year, everything was decorated in pink with a pink cake in the shape of a castle," the source added.

As Aaradhya celebrates her fifth birthday, grandfather and megastar Amitabh Bachchan shared his piece of thoughts and wished his most beautiful granddaughter, Big B, wrote, "The most beautiful grand daughter in the whole wide world." As Aaradhya celebrated her birthday, he wrote, "...though she turns 5, her countenance lingers close to 55 ! The children of this generation are so .. extraordinarily bright, self assured, and knowing all that happens around them .. and more .."

He also mentioned Aishwarya and how only she can decode Aaradhya's thoughts, "Who really are we to decide what is there for them .. what is their feel of matters .. why do they indulge in such manner .. we never can tell .. their Mother’s can at times, but not us .. that then is the exclusivity of the 5 year old .. !! The grandmother temperament at the age of 5 going on 50 .."
