No matter how stern a man might be in his personal and professional fronts, you will see a completely different side of him when he’s with his little one. It may sound cliché, but fatherhood does change a man. Nowadays, fathers aren’t just the breadwinners in the family as they equally contribute to the upbringing of the child by spending quality time with them and helping the mothers in the chores of their little ones. The moment a man is told that his wife has conceived and when he holds his little one in his arms for the first time, he surprisingly adapts the new role of being a father so beautifully that it will be sometimes hard to recognise him. On Abhishek Bachchan’s birthday, his dear friend, Sikandar Kher posted a picture of Junior B with his ‘little lady’ and it is a proof of how lucky Aaradhya Bachchan is to have a father like him.

Born to Amitabh Bachchan and Jaya Bachchan in 1976, Abhishek Bachchan followed the footsteps of his parents and made his debut in Bollywood with Refugee in 2000. When Abhishek had joined the entertainment industry as an actor, he was touted to make an equably, if not greater, noticeable mark as his megastar father, Amitabh Bachchan. But social media trolls or flops, nothing had deterred him and Abhishek had, time and again, proved he is one hell of a fighter! Despite the beliefs of many that Abhishek isn’t one of the best actors and is in the limelight just because of his father, Junior B stayed true to himself and he is genuinely a nice person.
As Abhishek Bachchan turned 45 on February 5, 2021, the wishes poured in on social media, from his loved ones. Abhishek’s childhood friend and actor, Sikandar Kher posted a throwback picture of Junior B with Aaradhya Bachchan and the father-daughter duo stole our hearts in no time. Abhishek and Aaradhya were in a playful mood and the little one’s cuteness is way beyond words. Sikandar captioned this priceless picture as “To my brother of all kinds .. you are a kind person.. but not practised .. it’s comes naturally to you from your heart and your being ... I try everyday to remind myself of how important it is for me to be kind, for that gives one peace .... you my friend are peace ... to have you in my life is peace to me (albeit the times that’s you’re not) .. on your birthday I wish you good health always .. your little lady is blessed to have a papa like you... may you bring peace to many that your being does touch... (I’m now thinking how to beat this message for the 5th of feb next year, but that’s clearly, a me problem) ... Happy Birthday Abhishek.. I love you #AbhishekBachchan.” (Also Read: Soha Ali Khan Showers Her Little Princess, Inaaya Naumi Kemmu With Lots Of Kisses)
Abhishek Bachchan’s niece, Navya Naveli Nanda commented on Sikandar Kher’s post, “He’s the best.” To which, he replied, “@navyananda I jusstttt posted on your post navyaaaaaa.” Navya posted a throwback selfie with Abhishek and raised a toast to her ‘favourite family member’. To wish Abhishek, Navya wrote, "Happy birthday best friend. To more NYC nights and Chelsea games. You may just be my favourite family member. My partner in all crimes!" Sikandar commented on her post, "He should 'totes' be your best fam jam... he wins hands down." Navya replied, "Ya, he does for sure." Amitabh Bachchan penned an emotional note with a special collage of two throwback pictures with his son, Abhishek. In the first picture, Big B held Abhishek’s hand as he led the way, however, in the second picture, it was the other way round. Big B captioned the post as “I lead him once holding his hand .. he leads me now holding my hand ..”
Speaking of Abhishek Bachchan’s relationship with his daughter, Aaradhya Bachchan, it was in 2017 when Junior B had graced the show, Kaun Banega Crorepati and had recalled when he got his ears pierced with his little one. Get ready to go all awww as the reason will melt your hearts! Revealing why he had done that, Abhishek said that he wanted to experience the pain his daughter went through. When Aaradhya was born in 2011, the elated daddy, Abhishek had tweeted, "Thank you all for your prayers and good wishes. Both Aishwarya and the baby are doing great and taking some much-needed rest. And I’m trying my level best to get rid of this caffeeine high and get some sleep too. Don’t think it’ll work. TOO EXCITED."
