Sharing the video on Twitter and Instagram, Abhishek Bachchan wrote, “It took a lot of secrecy, a lot of planning, a lot of hard-work and a lot of rehearsals to get it right. But then again, he deserves no less! It was very emotional to be able to surprise dad and celebrate his 80th Birthday at the place he loves the most, his workplace.”

Thanking the KBC 14 team, he further added, “My gratitude to the entire team of Sony and Kaun Banega Crorepati for helping me do this and making tonight’s episode so special for my father. Do try and see it if possible. KBC on 11th October at 9pm IST only on Sony TV.” He added the hashtag 'Happy Birthday Amitabh Bachchan' to the caption.

The video opens with Abhishek rehearsing for the special episode. On the show, a voiceover is played to surprise Amitabh, "Kahte hain beta kitna bhi bada ho jaye, pita ko hamesha hi bachcha lagta hai (it is said no matter how old a son gets, he always remains a kid for his father)." Amitabh opens his arms to hug Abhishek as he makes an entry on the sets. He takes Amitabh’s chair and makes the veteran actor take the hot seat. A montage of pictures is played on the big screen. As Amitabh also gets emotional, Abhishek stands beside him and offers him water.

As a second surprise, Jaya Bachchan also arrives on the set and gives Abhishek a hug. As she joins an emotional Amitabh Bachchan on the hot seat, she tickles his chin to cheer him up and also offers him a sweet dish in a bowl. They also had a cake-cutting ceremony for him on the sets.

At midnight, Amitabh rang in his birthday by giving a surprise darshan to his fans waiting outside his residence. He waved to the fans while Shweta Bachchan stood beside the gate, waiting for him. They went inside a couple of minutes later.
