05 February,2015:Â Abhishek Bachchan turned 39 on Thursday and the actor has a particular policy for ringing in all his birthdays. â€œFor me the best way of celebrating is to work. A birthday is a birthday. I like to spend my birthday with my family if I can. But it wouldnâ€™t be a happy birthday for me if Iâ€™m not working,â€ said Abhishek Bachchan.
This has been the birthday routine for Abhishek since his debut in filmdom. â€œEvery year since I started my career in 1998, Iâ€™ve made sure that Iâ€™m shooting. I remember I was shooting with J.P. Dutta Saab on my birthday. The only year I missed shooting on my birthday was the year when I was in New York promoting â€˜Delhi-6â€². I hope to continue working on all my birthdays,â€ he said.
There will be his daughter to sing â€œHappy Birthdayâ€ this year. â€œAaradhya is the centre of our universe. Sheâ€™s a wonderful child. All credit to Aishwarya (wife) for being a terrific mother. Fatherhood has completely changed my outlook to life. Bringing a child into the world changes all your priorities. I am sure every parent would agree,â€ said the doting father.
His star parents â€“ Amitabh and Jaya Bachchan remain important to him. â€œIâ€™m close to both of my parents. But itâ€™s a different equation with each. My father is more of a friend. I share a more traditional mother-son relationship with my mother. Itâ€™s very hard to differentiate between the two, but thereâ€™s a difference between my relationship with the two,â€ he said.
Abhishek is looking forward to working with his father again. â€œIâ€™ve enjoyed each and every moment with him on camera. Iâ€™ve learnt so much from just sharing camera space with him. I canâ€™t wait to work with him again. Who wouldnâ€™t?â€
â€œApart from a son wanting to work with his father who wouldnâ€™t want to work with Mr. Amitabh Bachchan? Iâ€™m just excited at the thought of standing in the same frame as him. I donâ€™t care if I donâ€™t have a single dialogue,â€ he said.
The most memorable birthday for Abhishek was not his own, but his fatherâ€™s 60th birthday.
â€œIt was a memorable occasion. My motherâ€™s book on my father was released, which, of course, was wonderful. But the occasion was momentous because we were celebrating a life that has achieved so much, â€ Abhishek said.
