As Abhishek Bachchan turns 41 today, wishes are pouring in from all corners. His friends and family members are taking to the social media since early morning, to wish the actor on his special day. While close friend Bipasha Basu shared an adorable selfie, Karan Johar posted a picture where the director is kissing his Dostana actor. But what stands apart is father Amitabh Bachchan’s beautiful tweet.
The megastar shared an unseen picture of Abhishek when he was just 12, which was much before he made his foray into films. Amitabh wrote, “A Chelsea win .. a Pizza from Daughter’s favorite .. wishes at 12 .. and another year for Abhishek gone by ..#HappyBirthdayAB.”
Well, this picture is surely for the keeps as it also reveals that the Dhoom actor has been a big football fanatic since childhood. And eventually, he went on to become one of the owners of a football team titled Chennai FC in Hero Football premier league.
Abhishek made his acting debut with J.P. Dutta’s Refugee in 2000, alongside Kareena Kapoor. After a series of average films, he gave his first commercial hit after four years with Dhoom. Abhishek is now an integral part of the Bollywood’s action franchise, that has already given three films, all of them blockbusters.
Check out what father Amitabh Bachchan wrote for his son Abhishek.
