As the actor reveals in his blog, the daughter of Aishwarya Rai and Abhishek Bachchan was tutored to croon “Happy Birthday” to him, and it was indeed a special moment.
“A strange calmness descends on the eve of the clock that strikes 12 midnight .. the family, the few that are in town, bring in the greetings, the ‘little one’ ably tutored sings a ‘happy birthday’ to herself first and then after suitable prompting, to me … its these little moments that make up a birthday .. the bigger moments follow .. the gifts of love and affection from the Ef (extended family), from those that we know and cannot see or meet, from people on the streets as you pass by, from the crew on the set, from those that have lived and worked with me through the ages ..” the septuagenarian Libran posted on his blog srbachchan.tumblr.com.
The superstar was in a reflective mood as he turned 71.
“It is 71 now … just last year or just the other day it was 70 ! The years seem to pass by faster now than they did before. There was a desire to push the pedal all along those early years , to mature, to become adult, to bring on greater age … now you depress the brakes pedal with equal effort, and hope to stem the slide as it were .. no not I, I accept the years the giving up on time, on age … it shall happen to us all .. that is the commonality of the process of life .. we are blessed, all of us … !!”
Meanwhile, Aaradhya Bachchan is also on the verge of turning 2 next month.
