Aishwarya Rai Bachchan turned 40 on this 1st of November. And daughter Aaradhya Bachchan made mom’s birthday a very special day, as she sang “Happy Birthday To You” to Aishwarya, on midnight of 1st November.It was the first time ever, that Aishwarya Rai addressed media on her birthday, outside her residence “Janak”. And she revealed how to the public how Aaradhya made her birthday even more special.
Aishwarya Rai said “It’s the most special experience when Aaradhya sang Happy Birthday to me,” She further added that “Aaradhya sleeps very late like all of us. She was awake at that time and she sang Happy Birthday to me on Friday midnight.”
Aishwarya Rai taught her daughter to sing Happy Birthday song, but Aaradhya feels it is her birthday so she sings Happy Birthday to Aaradhya!. “Since last evening she (Aaradhya) is wishing me happy birthday mama. Even at midnight she sang birthday song but with her name. It was sweet of her”
“It’s a very special experience. She did the same last month for paa ( Amitabh Bachchan) also,” Aishwarya Rai Bachchan told media.
When the journalist asked if her hubby Abhishek Bachchan has gifted her something on her special day, then Aishwarya Rai replied “I think We will leave it to Abhishek to share it with you. He has given me a gift, but the biggest gift he has given me is Aaradhya. She is my biggest gift.”
Aishwarya Rai also said that this year it will be a quiet birthday for her with family – husband Abhishek and daughter Aaradhya – and few close friends, instead of any lavish party.
According to a few sources “It was a very intimate gathering, Aishwarya Rai wanted to catch up with her really close friends from college. They are married and have busy lives of their own. She was meeting them after years. Aishwarya preferred to do this long-pending rendezvous with her college friends on her birthday.”
However there was another reason to celebrate the birthday quietly, cause two days later, on Diwali night, the Bachchans threw a big bash at their home Jalsa.
Anyways, Aishwarya wore a red churidar suit while she interacted with her fans and media. And she looked gorgeous.
Aishwarya thanked all her fans for the best wishes: “Heartfelt thank you to everyone for the wishes. It’s a good coincidence that my birthday comes with Diwali… It’s a celebration time. I am thankful to God for this life… Thankful to my parents for this gift of life. It means a lot to me. I embrace everything that life gives me.”
