Abhishek to have private birthday with family in Maldives

Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan, who turns 40 on Friday, February 5, will ring in his birthday in the exotic location of Maldives. There were also reports that his gorgeous wife Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has planned a surprise for her hubby.

Abhishek’s birthday is usually celebrated at their family home ‘Jalsa’ in Mumbai and the occasion is graced by many celebrities. But this time it will be a private affair with his wife Aishwarya and their four-year-old daughter Aaradhya.

His parents, veteran actors Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan will also join the birthday boy along with sister Shweta Bachchan Nanda, who is in the country for a holiday.

The Bachchans have planned a weekend trip to the island nation. Apart from the family, it is not known if anyone else will be a part of the celebrations.

Abhishek and Aishwarya will be staying only for a brief period as both of them have professional commitments.

While, Aishwarya is shooting for Omung Kumar-directed biopic ‘Sarabjit’, Abhishek is filming the third instalment of comedy franchise, ‘Housefull 3’. He will be playing the character of a budding rapper in the film. A major portion of the film has been shot in London and it is slated to release later this year. The film also stars Akshay Kumar, Riteish Deshmukh, Jacqueline Fernandez, Nargis Fakhri and Lisa Haydon.
