Last month, Amitabh ji was graced with Dadasaheb Phalke Award and added another jewel in his already bejewelled hat. While he is often addressed as the superstar of Bollywood, he prefers being referred to as the son of Dr Harivansh Rai Bachchan.
Today, on October 11, 2019, Amitabh ji celebrated his 77th birthday and his family showered him with happy wishes. But it was his poti, Aaradhya Bachchan's wish that touched our heart. Aishwarya Rai Bachchan took to her Instagram and shared a picture of Amitabh ji with Aaradhya and wrote, "Happy 77th Birthday Pa-Dadaji God Bless and Love you Always." Take a look at it below:

Recently, in an interview with the Filmfare magazine, Amitabh Bachchan had said, "What is there to celebrate? It's a day like any other. I'm grateful that I still working, that my body is able to keep pace with my spirit." Sharing his childhood memories, Amitabh ji had recalled how his father and poet, Harivansh Rai Bachchan used to celebrate his birthday by composing a special poem for him. Amitabh ji had shared, "It was a family tradition. But this tradition took an entirely new definition when, after my near-fatal accident in 1984 (when he nearly lost his life after a shooting accident on the set of Coolie), my father recited my birthday poem. It was like a new life for me. While reading the poem my father broke down. It was the only time I've seen him like that." He further added, "My father's poetry is much-missed, as is my mother's excitement on that day. The annual ritual of cake-cutting no longer interests me. It has been replaced by a plate of dry fruits.” (Don't Miss: Deepika Padukone Reveals The Dress Code That Ranveer Singh Follows While Attending Her Family Events)
