New Delhi: Shweta Bachchan celebrated her father Amitabh Bachchan’s 80th birthday by posting the lyrics of Abida Parveen and Naseebo Lal’s song Tu Jhoom as well as a slew of previously unseen family photos on Instagram. One of them also shows Amitabh Bachchan reading from a religious book during a puja ritual.
Shweta Bachchan concluded her post with the message, “To my grand old man happy 80th birthday.” The first image shows her kissing him on the cheek. There are also childhood photos of Shweta holding Amitabh’s hand while strolling with her, as well as recent ones of them together at events. She also uploaded a photo of Amitabh Bachchan as a youngster with his parents, Harivansh Rai Bachchan and Teji Bachchan.
Navya Naveli Nanda, Shweta’s daughter, also scribbled a few lines from another Harivansh Rai Bachchan poem and included a black and white photo of herself as a youngster with grandfather Amitabh Bachchan. She wrote, “Tu na rukega kabhi, tu na mudega kabhi, kar shapath, kar shapath, kar shapath, Agnipath Agnipath Agnipath. There never has, and never will be anyone like you, happy birthday nana.”
Amitabh’s film, Goodbye, was released only days before he turned 80. It also stars Neena Gupta, Pavail Gulati, Elli Avram, and Rashmika Mandanna, who made her Bollywood debut in Pushpa: The Rise.
