|Two weeks are still to go before Amitabh Bachchan’s 70th birthday next month, but the fans and friends are already agog with anticipation and preparing to make the mega star’s birthday a super special one.
Mega-celebrations are being planned for megastar Amitabh Bachchan's 70th birthday Oct 11. Designer duo Abu Jani and Sandeep Khosla are assisting the veteran actor's wife Jaya in creating a "big surprise", and they are even designing a special outfit for Big B.
"It is a big surprise. I can't reveal everything right now. We are designing something special for Mr. Bachchan. You will get to know about everything as you get closer to the big day. Things will get clearer as we will get closer to the event," Khosla told IANS.
The designer duo has been creating outfits for the Bachchan family - Amitabh, Jaya Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai and Shweta Nanda - since long, and their association goes much beyond just clothes. Amitabh recently launched their book in London, along with Hollywood star Judi Dench.
As for the much awaited birthday bash, Khosla remained tight-lipped, but said: "It will be Jaya Bachchan's event. We will only be helping her with all the preparations. Individually, we are not hosting any party for him."
Big B gets special birthday gift from fan
Amitabh Bachchan's 70th birthday is still over two weeks away, but his fans have been showering him with gifts galore. One of the fans gifted him a wooden frame with a picture of him and his wife Jaya.
Amitabh, who is busy hosting "Kaun Banega Crorepati 6" these days, turns 70 Oct 11. Grand celebrations are reportedly being planned for the special day.
Vivek Kumar, a contestant from Uttar Pradesh, gifted a beautiful picture frame made from rosewood, and crafted using an ancient art form, said a source from the set.
Kumar first surprised Big B by playing the flute, and later even recited a few couplets.
Ever since the sixth season of KBC began Sep 7, Big B has received a lot of love from his ardent fans who come to visit him on sets. Some have gifted him Ganapati idols, while few have brought him sweets like rasgullas.
