Bollywood star Abhishek Bachchan, currently busy shooting in Goa, plans to be back in Mumbai Friday to celebrate the 62nd birthday of his mother, who is recuperating from a stomach infection.
"For now Abhishek is in Goa. He is shooting for Rohan Sippy's Dum Maaro Dum. But he plans to fly back either tonight or tomorrow for his mother's (Jaya Bachchan) birthday," a source close to the actor told IANS from Mumbai.
"Abhishek likes to celebrate these occasions with the family and it is most likely to be a close affair," added the source.
Veteran actor and Samajwadi Party MP Jaya had fallen ill Tuesday, her husband, megastar Amitabh Bachchan had informed through his blog.
"Jaya has taken ill... suddenly... and I am with the doctors now investigating the problem. It's never good to see her like this for she rarely gets in such condition," the 67-year-old had posted.
But he says her condition is better now.
"The fever is down and the infection in the stomach that had grounded her yesterday has abated, but the medication and rest shall have to continue for a few more days," Amitabh posted.
Luckily, her daughter-in-law Aishwarya will also be there to celebrate the b’day. She is in Mumbai shooting for Sanjay Leela Bhansali's Guzaarish, in which she plays a married nurse, who falls in love with a paraplegic patient, played by her Dhoom 2 and Jodhaa Akbar co-star Hrithik Roshan.
