I am insisting Maa to join Twitter, Aishwarya Rai

Former Miss World, Bollywood diva and Bachchan bahu, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is busy convincing her mother-in-law Jaya Bachchan to join twitter. "A big hello from maa, I am insisting her 2 join Twitter," Ash tweeted on her account. Jaya Bachchan celebrated her 62nd birthday on Friday and looks like, as per Aishwarya, the occasion is right for her mother-in-law to join Twitter.

Interestingly, Jaya so far is the only member in the Bachchan family who has not joined any social networking site. Unlike, Big B, Aishwarya and her husband Abhishek are all on Twitter and regularly post. Though, it’s not clear if Jaya will join the social networking site.

Friday April 9, Big B, Abhi, and Ash posted short messages on Twitter to wish Jaya Bachchan Happy Birthday. Abhishek, who’s currently busy shooting for his next venture ‘Dum Maaro Dum’ in Goa tweeted on his Twitter page, “Today is the birthday of the mothership! HAPPY BIRTHDAY ma! Love you (sic)." Amitabh Bachchan, on the other hand, not just wished his lovely wife but also wished actress Sharmila Tagore, whose birthday also comes on same day.

"Happy Birthday Jaya !! Happy Birthday Sharmila !! Who started this ritual of celebrating births, making and cutting cakes, singing birthday ditties, presenting gifts ..? I didn't and neither did any of the FmXt, I am certain. But, for years, the practice remains and flourishes... so be it !!," wrote Big B.
