Abhishek and Aishwarya have a daughter named Aaradhya, who was born on 16 November 2011. Abhishek once said that he would be happy with whatever career option his daughter Aaradhya will choose in the future. Abhishek, on being asked if his daughter would contribute in Bollywood to continue the “Bachchan trend," he said, "I would like my daughter to do whatever she chooses to do and whatever she loves to do. As a kid, I was told to do what made me happy and I want her to do what makes her happy. Whatever it is I will be happy."

Abhishek might have given us decent film, but he is a successful son, husband, and father for sure. We send him good wishes on his birthday.
