As and when we grow up and get down the memory lane, there are zillion childhood memories that cross our minds but what we miss the most are the school days. From playing flames with friends, dressing up on birthday and distribute toffees, being scared for not completing the homework to exchanging juicy gossips on who has a crush on whom, praying for a substitute period, amongst multitudinous school memories, rejuvenate our dull days today.

But how can any school’s crazily fun memories be incomplete without the big celebrations such as Farewell, Teacher's Day, Republic Day, Independence Day and Annual Day? These celebrations used to hold a very special space in every student as well as parent’s lives. And when it comes to B-town celebs and their kids, these moments take their fans in awe of them even more. It seems like just yesterday when Aishwarya Rai Bachchan-Abhishek Bachchan and Aamir Khan-Kiran Rao’s tiny tots, Azad Rao Khan and Aaradhya Bachchan melted everyone’s heart with their first performance on Annual Day.
Aaradhya and Azad study in the same school, Dhirubhai Ambani International School, and the chairperson of this school is Nita Ambani. At the recently held Dusshera Assembly at the school, Aaradhya and Azad participated and looked adorable in the epic characters of Sita and Ram respectively. We are sure the performance was also as good as their flawless looks, after all acting is in their blood. The pictures were shared on a fan page on Twitter. Another video went viral where the tiny tots can be seen rehearsing for their show. Check them out here:
During an interaction with a leading daily, Aamir spoke in length about his kids, Junaid, Ira and Azad, and said, "My son Junaid (24) has just started interning with me. Not just in my films, but in everything I do, including my NGO Paani Foundation. My daughter Ira (20) is studying liberal arts at the Utrecht University in the Netherlands. She’s a fantastic painter. I keep asking her to pursue it seriously. But, bachchey sunte nahi hain. My youngest, Azaad, is six now. He’s totally mast. He likes spending time with me, but I suspect that he doesn’t miss me much even when I can’t." (Also Read: Aamir Khan's Statements On Surrogacy Should Inspire Couples Who Can't Conceive Naturally)
Further speaking about his youngest one, Azad, Aamir shared, "I only do two things for him. I used to take him every day at 4 pm to play tennis. I’d sit for one hour while he’d play. Whenever I’m in Mumbai, I make sure I’m at home latest by 7 pm so that I’ve dinner with him or rather he sits with me and has his dinner."
In an interaction with Deccan Chronicle, when Abhishek was asked if Aaradhya will be sent to a boarding school in future, he retorted, "She is too young, she’s just six-year-old now. We haven’t discussed it yet. I remember, when I was in boarding school, I would often write letter to my dad. But today’s children are technology driven. Aaradhya writes me notes sometimes when I am out of town. But we usually stay in touch through FaceTime.”
Speaking about her daughter Aaradhya, Aishwarya shared in an interview, “It’s splendid, it’s inescapable...the bliss is just wonderful. A smile from my daughter and that’s it.” Further adding how they try to keep a normal atmosphere at home, Aishwarya went on to say, “In any case, Aaradhya is constantly singing and dancing at home, sometimes to my songs, sometimes to her father's and her grandfather's songs. It's a normal household. We're trying to keep the atmosphere around Aaradhya as normal as possible."
How does a day in the life of Aishwarya Rai Bachchan look like? Aishwarya shared the same in an interview, “It's something I've grown up with. From the time I was 18, I've been juggling with many responsibilities. My day begins at 5.30 a.m. It has been that way from the time I remember. Of course, after Aaradhya my priorities have changed completely. She comes first, everything else is secondary.” (Also Read: Aishwarya Rai Bachchan And Aaradhya Bachchan's Mother-Daughter Moments Are Nothing But Pure Love)
