Baby Aaradhya may be too small to realise what the buzz is all about, but her grand dad, Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan has ensured that his gift to his grand daughter on her first Diwali is a newsmaker.
Big B gifted a red and black BMW Mini Cooper S car worth close to Rs. 24 lakh to the 11-month-old infant on Diwali. The Bachchan family decided to make the gifting an elaborate affair, as the entire family queued up at the showroom to drive the toddler’s gift home.
On November 13, Big B accompanied by wife Jaya Bachchan, son Abhishek and daughter-in-law Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, drove the red car to their bungalow.
Dressed in traditional outfits, the first family of Bollywood were all set to make Aaradhya’s first Diwali special. While dad Abhishek and grandpa Amitabh wore bright silk kurtas, mom Aishwarya decided to sport a bright pink anarkali kurta.
Big B and the Bachchan family had also ordered 200 kandils (lanterns) to light up Jalsa, their residence, for Aaradhya’s first Diwali. The Bachchans made an appearance for their fans outside their residence after the Diwali puja at home. A lavish Diwali bash followed, which was attended by a large brigade of Bollywood biggies.
