Inside Aaradhya’s birthday bash: Aishwarya and Abhishek play musical chairs with kids, Shilpa Shetty and Esha Deol attend party
The Bachchan family is in celebratory mood. After a private family dinner on Friday, Abhishek Bachchan and his wife, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, threw a birthday party for their daughter, Aaradhya, who has turned seven. Aaradhya’s birthday bash on Saturday saw Bollywood personalities such as Shilpa Shetty, Esha Deol, Farah Khan, Neelam Kothari and Tara Sharma, among others, in attendance. Shilpa came with son Viaan, while Esha made it to the bash with her daughter, Radhya, and husband Bharat Takhtani.
Sharing a group photo on Instagram, Aishwarya wrote: “Love you eternally Aaradhya Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.”
The mother and daughter were seen twinning in cream and gold; Aaradhya in a pretty frock while Aishwarya wore a salwar kameez. Meanwhile, Aaradhya’s grandfather, Amitabh Bachchan, and Abhishek both chose to wear shades of pink, with Abhishek sporting a glittery pink T-shirt.
Also seen in the picture are Aaradhya’s aunt, Shweta Bachchan Nanda, and maternal grandmother, Vrinda Rai.
In one of the videos from the party doing the rounds online, Abhishek can be seen conducting a game of musical chairs while in another, daddy cool dances with the kids.
Shilpa, too, shared pictures from the celebration. In one of them, we can see her posing with Amitabh and Abhishek. In another, she and Viaan are posing with Aaradhya and Aishwarya. While she wished Aaradhya on her birthday, she also thanked Aishwarya and Abhishek for making parties so much fun for the children.
In yet another picture, Esha with Radhya and Bharat pose for the camera in the company of Abhishek and his family. Director Farah Khan was also spotted with her son, Czar and so was Sonali Bendre’s husband Goldie Behl who came with his son Ranveer.
Abhishek also posted a picture of Aaradhya holding a rose in her hand on his Instagram page, and wrote: “My rose.” Karan Johar’s daughter Roohi was also seen at the party.
On Friday evening, the entire Bachchan clan stepped out for a family dinner which also included a mini cake cutting ceremony with some of Aaradhya’s friends. Earlier in the day, Abhishek had posted two pictures wishing his daughter on her 7th birthday. In the second picture, he had not only wished his little girl, but complimented Aishwarya for being an accomplished mother.
