As megastar Amitabh Bachchan turns 75 on October 11, Bollywood is abuzz with expectations about his birthday plans. But contrary to reports that suggested that he would be hosting a grand dinner for the who’s who of Bollywood at Film City, a Mid-Day report suggests that the Bachchan family is all set to fly off to Maldives for some private time.
As reported by a close friend of the superstar, “The entire Bachchan clan, including Shweta Bachchan Nanda and her children Navya Naveli and Agastya, will be heading out to Maldives on October 10. Abhishek and Aishwarya have planned a week-long celebration and supervised all the arrangements. Aaradhya has designed a special hand-painted card for her grandfather. They will ring in his birthday with fireworks, cake and wine.”
Mid-day also reported that Big B wanted to keep his birthday a private affair this time and since that won’t be possible while staying in Mumbai amid friends and relatives, the family decided to fly off to Maldives. The Bachchans had also celebrated Abhishek’s 40th birthday in 2016 at the exotic island country and it looks like they fell in love with the place then.
“They had enjoyed the Maldives trip so much that they decided to re-visit it. They will be putting up at the same hotel that they stayed in, during Abhishek’s birthday. In fact, Abhishek has planned a yacht party for the whole family again,” added the friend. “They have taken time off from their respective work commitments to be part of the celebrations. Aishwarya will shoot for Fanney Khan for a week before heading out on the break. Big B has also intimated the team of Kaun Banega Crorepati about his impending holiday,” the report further stated.
