Unlike the birthdays of the ‘stars’ of the film industry where the hashtag starts trending a day prior and wishes pour in all through the day, Jaya Bachchan, not any less of a star by any means, had the most adorable wishes from her children. Abhishek Bachchan and Shweta Bachchan Nanda used just two words for their mother, 'Ma' and 'Captain' and that said it all about what mothers are all about.
Abhishek shared a stunning throwback portrait of Jaya Bachchan and wrote ‘Maa’ in Hindi. We all know how powerful the role of a mother is and the numerous responsibilities she handles day in and day out. The 'Bluffmaster' star's continuation, ‘The word says it all’ summed it perfectly. He captioned the picture, "माँ! The word says it all. Happy Birthday Ma. Love you."
For most of us, mother is the go-to person in any crisis, and it's not any different for Shweta who called Jaya Bachchan a ‘captain.’ Sharing a beautiful snap of the mother-daughter duo, dressed in traditional wear and sharing an embrace, Shweta captioned the post, ‘O Captain My Captain’ along with a cake emoticon. Sweet, isn't it?
The 71st birthday of the veteran actress, who is also a Member of Parliament, reminded us once again of her long absence on the big screen. A cameo in ‘Ki & Ka’ aside, the actor-politician has not been seen in a full-fledged Bollywood movie for over 10 years now after Abhishek starrers ‘Drona’ and 'Laaga Chunari Mein Daag' in 2007-08 respectively. Fans would definitely hope that they soon see the powerhouse performer back on the screen.
