The actor who is truly a superstar will be showered with love from his family and friends. Besides the usual party he will also be gifted with a number of paintings by his wife.
IF YOU are the megastar of a country and you are turning 70 then any surprise planned for D day is sure to be leaked to media, however hard friends and family may try to keep it under wraps. It has been heard that his family and friends have planned a big surprise for this milestone (although he questions as to why 70 should be a milestone and not 62 or 79).
Wife Jaya Bachchan
is the captain of the celebration bash and is planning everything from cake to the birthday banners, according to various reports. Son Abhishek Bachchan
is flying all the way from Chicago, where he is shooting for Dhoom 3 and he will not be alone! Aamir Khan
is reportedly accompanying the Junior Bachchan for the special occasion. Although the Bachchans are quite close to SRK and family they are also gelling very well with Aamir and his new family.
As part of the plan, Jaya has invited around 70 artists from around India to do painting inspired by the actor himself. These paintings will be exhibited at an art show and will also be documented in a coffee table book to mark the occasion but Big B has no clue of the matter whatsoever and wants to keep it like that.
The actor wanted some alone time with his family on this day but the family had planned for something grand - a huge dinner party on Oct 10, an art show, poster exhibition and book launch on the big day. When asked by IBN LIVE about the best gifts he has received so far on his birthdays, Big B said, “My family - my wife Jaya and the two wonderful gifts that she gave me - (son) Abhishek and (daughter) Shweta and now the bahu (daughter-in-law) in the house, Aishwarya, and the little (granddaughter) Aaradhya... so these are my wonderful gifts and no one can replace them.”
