The buzz from Bollywood reveals that actor Abhishek Bachchan celebrated his birthday on Sunday with his two favourite girls, wife Aishwarya Rai and their adored baby, still known only as Beti B. As the actor turned 36 he took the day off from his busy film schedule to enjoy a private celebration.
reported that Abhishek's friends were planning to throw a surprise birthday bash for him. However their plans were changed when an inside source revealed "he had taken a small vacation in between to be by the side of his wife and daughter, he was insistent on spending the special day with them only. As of now, the three are expected to head to an undisclosed location."
Bollywood stars took to social media site Twitter to wish him a happy birthday. The Deccan Herald
reported that some of the tweets Abhishek received included one from actress Sonam Kapoor who wrote "Happy birthday @juniorbachchan! You by far the nicest coolest person I know." Another from actress Bipasha Basu read "Happy Happy Birthday @juniorbachchan! Love and Hugs from Bippy."
Follwing his family day Abhishek is due to return to filming 'Bol Bachchan' directed by Rohit Shetty. The Hindustan Times
reported Abhishek wants to use his celebrity status to promote the issue of climate change. He said "If I make a film just talking about climate change, it would be boring to watch. The real challenge is to make a film that would be engrossing enough for the audiences to come out and watch and deal with the issues. If we come across something like that, I am on and I'll sign on the dotted line any day."
Abhishek went on to add "I think if a celebrity has the ability to make a difference and influence even two people, then he should help...There is some kind of purpose to so-called celebrityhood; hopefully some people would listen and follow suit...I think if a celebrity has a voice, one should go out there and make it work."
