Amitabh Bachchan’s Birthday Special: For the veteran actor’s 80th birthday on October 11, his wife Jaya Bachchan and son Abhishek decided to surprise him on the sets of the TV quiz show Kaun Banega Crorepati 14. In a recent video shared by the makers, Jaya Bachchan is seen complaining about how her husband Amitabh Bachchan, who always sends handwritten letters and flowers to actors as a token of appreciation, has never sent her one.

Questioning Big B over the same, Jaya said, “Maine dekha to nahin hai magar suna hai ki aap jab kisike kaam se prabhaavit hote hain, ye svabhaav se, toh kuchh phool bhejte hai, chitthi bhejte hai. Waise aaj tak mujhe kabhi nahin bheji. Bheji hai? (I have not seen but heard that when you are impressed with someone’s work or nature, you send that person either flowers or letters but you never sent it to me. Did you ever?”)

Abhishek Bachchan also nodded his head and Big B replied: “Yeh karyakaram toh sarvajanik horaha hai, yaar yeh galat hai (this show is going public, this is wrong).” To this son Abhishek replied,”Nahi, nahi bilkul nahi. Aap agey dekhiye kya kya hota hai (No not at all, you see what happens next).”


Jaya also made Big B speechless by asking an interesting question that what he would do if he is stuck with her on an island and the ‘Shakti’ star failed to answer it and asked for options. To which Jaya said that there are no options for this question. ALSO READ: Amitabh Bachchan Birthday: Fans share rare photos, poems and Big B’s film poster as he turns 80
