A quiet family dinner marked the fifth wedding anniversary of Abhishek and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, a far cry from the extravagant nuptials celebrated on April 20, 2007.
Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan tweeted congratulations to his son and daughter-in-law at midnight. Writing in his blog Big B said "it seems like yesterday when we were in the midst of all the rituals and celebrations for it. Time has flown by, additions have taken place, who shall very soon grow up to face and receive the inheritance of the elders." According to Filmitadka Abhishek was planning to take his wife and baby daughter Aaradhya away for the anniversary, but changed his mind, choosing instead a family dinner at home. Throughout the day messages and flowers arrived at the Bachchan home in Jalsa.
This was the second anniversary in a row that Bollywood's golden couple haveremained in India for their celebrations, after enjoying two anniversaries in the U.S. and one in Europe. Amitabh's film commitments have prevented prolonged celebrations for their fourth and fifth anniversaries.
