Big B’s birthday to end with family tea time

Mumbai, Oct 11: Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, who had a hectic programme on his 70th birthday Thursday, was at the B-Seventy art show which was inaugurated by Kokilabein Ambani at Nehru Centre in the evening but the day will only end once the family sits together for a cup of tea, said wife Jaya.

“Everything started from this exhibition and we could not arrange it before because of some situation so it was changed. So it’s not a spectacular conclusion it will be concluded only once the entire family sits together and sips a cup of tea,” she told reporters at the exhibition.

Amitabh, who was busy since morning, attended an event at 7 Hills Hospital and in the evening came for this art show. Agreeing with Jaya, he said: “Yes even I am waiting for that. I want to sit with my family and have a quite cup of tea.”

B-Seventy, a unique art show, will showcase the art works of 70 of India’s leading artists. All these work have one thing in common – their inspiration as each of the works is a tribute to the megastar on his 70th birthday.

Jaya, who gave a huge party Wednesday night, says grand-daughter Aaradhya did wish Big B on his birthday.

“Yes Aaradhya did wish him … she was there at the event and for the cake cutting and she did wish him.”

Asked how she wished him, Amitabh said: “Even if I say you will not understand her language.”

The entire Bachchan family was present at the event.

Son Abhishek Bachchan, asked which of Big B’s roles is his personal favourites, replied:”For me and (my sister) Shweta, it is his role as a father.”

Besides the family, Anil Ambani, Tina Ambani, Madhu, Shaina N.C., Deepti Nawal, and Brinda Rai were also present among others.

B70 covers a varied gamut of genres of Indian art. These include modern and contemporary art, sculptures, photography, mixed media and even an installation.
