Abhishek Bachchan turns 42: Big B gets emotional, celebs send wishes


Abhishek Bachchan turned 42 today and megastar and father Amitabh Bachchan took to his social media account to wish his son who is enjoying vacation in Australia with his wife Aishwarya and daughter Aaradhya. While wishing his good-mannered son, Big B gets emotional.

He mentioned in his blog, “It is beyond thought that the one that sat in wonder by the steps of the house on location, two front fingers in his mouth, hair independent of any set fashion hanging loosely over his broad forehead, a warm jacket keeping the cold of the hills at bay .. watching his Father shoot for his profession, silently.”

He mentioned that Abhishek has not changed over the years even though grown-up, “Abhishek .. the enunciation process and prayer to the God’s .. even now has that same wonder and questioning nature .. is a lot more quieter than his younger sitting on Father’s lap days .. and taller .. but still the nature similarity!”

Since Abhishek Bachchan is in Australia, Big B made sure to wish his beta according to his time zone. He mentioned, “and it just turned the 5th of February here in Mumbai, India .. and it had turned the 5th 5.30 hrs ago where Abhishek the birthday boy is – Australia !! Wishes were exchanged and greetings and blessings were given . May the blessings of a Father be his most desired .. for fulfilment and prosperity .. in a world that brings forth a challenge a minute.”

The doting father posted a couple of candid pictures on Twitter too and mentioned how time has flown. He wrote, ” #HBDAbhishekBachchan .. who is in a time zone out of the country .. !!
