Aaradhya surprises daadu Amitabh on his birthday

On his 71st birthday, the megastar of Bollywood Amitabh Bachchan got a beautiful gift in the morning. His granddaughter Aaradhya, daughter of Abhishek and Aishwarya Bachchan sang ‘Happy Birthday’ dadu in the morning. It was a big surprise for Big B as Aaradhya is hardly two and she sang the birthday song for him.

Big B wrote on his blog about Aaradhya, singing 'Happy Birthday' daadu early in the morning. It was his happiest moment. The proud granddad wrote on his blog today: "the 'little one' ably tutored sings a 'happy birthday' to herself first and then after suitable prompting, to me … its these little moments that make up a birthday... the bigger moments follow."

Amitabh Bachchan who turned 71 today thanked all his fans and well wishers for showering love on him.

He wrote, ".. the gifts of love and affection from the Ef, from those that we know and cannot see or meet, from people on the streets as you pass by, from the crew on the set, from those that have lived and worked with me through the ages .. It cannot be any better than the presence of the heavens about me .. my well wishers .. they go through so much personal effort to prepare that personalised card that touch of handicraft, a little something, so thoughtfully put together … the most expensive diamond in the world would not compare with this .. and I thank the english language for constructing this expression of 'thank you' or my own tongue in the gentleness of a 'anek anek dhanyavaad'."

Big B said that the years are passing by too quickly for him. He said on his blog, "It is 71 now … just last year or just the other day it was 70 ! The years seem to pass by faster now than they did before. There was a desire to push the pedal all along those early years , to mature, to become adult, to bring on greater age … now you depress the brakes pedal with equal effort, and hope to stem the slide as it were .. no not I, I accept the years the giving up on time, on age … it shall happen to us all .. that is the commonality of the process of life .. we are blessed, all of us …!!"

We wish Big B a happy, healthy and peaceful life for the days ahead!
