Abhishek Bachchan is playing the doting husband as wife Aishwarya Rai Bachchan celebrates her 45th birthday today, on November 1. Abhishek flew back to Mumbai to be with Aishwarya, after wrapping up the shoot for Anurag Basu’s next in Kolkata. The Bachchans had a quiet cake cutting celebration in the presence of a few family members and close friends as they celebrated on the eve of Aishwarya’s birthday, ie, on Wednesday night. The ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil’ actress stepped out last night for a spiritual visit to the famous Siddhivinayak Temple located at Prabhadevi in Mumbai. As true devotees of Lord Ganesha, Bachchans have been regular visitors of the temple since years.
For the birthday celebrations, Aishwarya, Abhishek and daughter Aaradhya Bachchan flew out early morning to Goa for some quality family time. There was news that the actress will have a quiet birthday at her Mumbai residence. Since the past couple of years Ash has been interacting with the media on her birthday and it was expected that the tradition would continue. Though this time she skipped it altogether to reach the airport early morning on November 1 so that she could well be in time to ring in her birthday in Goa. The ‘Fanney Khan’ actress lost her father earlier this year and may have decided to skip celebrations due to the same reason. This could have compelled the couple, Abhi and Ash, to fly to Goa for a small birthday celebration, away from the prying eyes of the media. On the work front, Aishwarya was to team up with Abhishek for ‘Gulab Jamun’, but the film has not gone on the floors yet. Meanwhile, birthday celebrations continue.
