Abhishek Bachchan turned 42 on Monday, February 5. On this happy occasion, Amitabh Bachchan shared a heartfelt message for his son in his blog recalling the days when he was a kid. Big B even took to Twitter to wish Junior Bachchan, who is currently holidaying in Australia with wife Aishwarya and their daughter Aaradhya.
In the blog, papa Bachchan wrote, “It is beyond thought that the one that sat in wonder by the steps of the house on location, two front fingers in his mouth, hair independent of any set fashion hanging loosely over his broad forehead, a warm jacket keeping the cold of the hills at bay .. watching his Father shoot for his profession, silently.”

He also mentions that how Abhishek hasn’t changed a bit over the years, “Abhishek .. the enunciation process and prayer to the God’s .. even now has that same wonder and questioning nature .. is a lot more quieter than his younger sitting on Father’s lap days .. and taller .. but still the nature similarity!”
Since Abhishek is in a different time zone, Big B further said, “and it just turned the 5th of February here in Mumbai, India .. and it had turned the 5th 5.30 hrs ago where Abhishek the birthday boy is – Australia !! Wishes were exchanged and greetings and blessings were given. May the blessings of a Father be his most desired .. for fulfilment and prosperity .. in a world that brings forth a challenge a minute.”
The father-son duo have shared screen space as father-son in Sarkar Raj, Cop-thief in Bunty Aur Babli and reversed their roles of off-screen father-son in Paa. Abhishek was last seen in Houseful 3. He is currently prepping for Anurag Kashyap's Manmarziyan. Reports also suggest that Abhishek will essay the role of Sahir Ludhianvi in Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s biopic on Amrita Pritam.
Wishes also poured in for the birthday boy from industry friends.
