On Instagram, Abhishek Bachchan shared a throwback photograph of the Bachchans' cruise holiday on his 40th birthday, which shows Aaradhya and Aishwarya embracing and kissing each other. He captioned it as: "#tbt #maldives #mothers&daughters"
Abhishek Bachchan shared a post-Holi picture with 'his girls' - wife Aishwraya and daughter Aaradhya -on Instagram on Friday, which shows him resting on Aishwarya's lap with Aaradhya, all three smeared in gulaal. Abhishek will be next seen in Housefull 3 and Aishwarya in Omung Kumar's Sarbjit
Abhishek and Aishwarya married in 2007. Aaradhya was born in 2011. Abhishek, who was last seen in 2015's All is Well, is currently filming Housefull 3. Aishwarya made her comeback after five years with Jazbaa last year, and is busy filming Sarbjit and Karan Johar's Ae Dil Hai Mushkil
The Bachchans celebrated Abhishek's birthday in true filmy-style. Big B, who shared the rest of the pictures on Facebook, wrote, "The family that stays together .. sails together ..!!" On Instagram, Abhishek posted a picture of himself with Aishwarya and their daughter Aaradhya
The Bachchans borrowed the photo within a photo progression from Modern Family for a pic that stars four generations of Bollywood's First Family. The image features late poet Harivanshrai Bachchan, who holds a framed photo of son Amitabh who holds a framed photo of his son Abhishek who clutches the final framed photo of Aaradhya
Abhishek wished Aaradhya, who turned four on November 16, in an Instagram post, along with a sketch of her made by an Indonesian visual artist. "Happy birthday my little angel," said Abhishek Bachchan
"Every time my family travels, particularly my granddaughter, it's a joy for Abhishek to come to me and say, 'Hey when did you speak to Aaradhya last?' so I said, 'When she left'. So he'd FaceTime with her. It's just these little things that children or grandchildren do for you, which makes life a lot easier helpful"
