The Real Reason Why Amitabh Bachchan Took Off On His Birthday

Amitabh Bachchan

The Big B’s vehement rejection of all birthday celebrations this year has a reason.And here it is  for the  first and last time.

A member of the Bachchan parivar  spills the beans: “Aaradhya lost her Nanaji this year. Aaradhya’s mother Aishwarya  nonetheless went ahead and planned a 75th birthday party for the patriarch of  the house. When Mr Bachchan  got wind of  it he immediately put an end to the plans without telling Aishwarya or anyone why he wanted the birthday celebrations annulled this year. Even now he has not really told anyone it’s  because  of his Samdhiji’s demise that Mr Bachchanhas cancelled all birthday celebrations.Jayaji just accepted Mr B’s request and asked the family to stop planning a party and  think of  a vacation outside Mumbai for  the birthday.”

So how did the family get to know the real reason for Mr Bachchan’s repudiation of  birthday celebrations?

“The family heard him patiently explain to little Aaradhya when she asked him why there would be no party of Dadaji’s birthday. It is then that Mr B told  his little grand-daughter the real reason for no celebration,” says  the source.

The family took off for a vacation on the eve of  Mr Bachchan’s birthday.

Explains a  member of the Bachchan parivar, “If we stayed back there would be  a hundred pressures from friends fans and wellwishersfor cake-cutting and hand-shaking. Amitji doesn’t know how to say no to those who request for his attention. It was best to simply fly away.”
