It was a subdued birthday for the amazing Jaya Bachchan who quietly turned 69 on Sunday. The bereaved Bachchan family has resolved to avoid all celebration.
“Because of Aishwarya’s father demise, there was no celebration, no party, not even a family get-together. Aishwarya is in her native town Mangalore with Aaradhya for a post-bereavement ritual. Jaya was in Delhi, while Amitji is unwell in Mumbai. Abhishek has joined Aishwarya in Mangalore. So it was a very subdued birthday this time for Jayaji with the family scattered in different cities,” informs a family friend.
As she was in Delhi Jaya spent some time with her daughter Shweta’s in-laws. “She likes her ‘alone’ time away from everyone, just reading walking and gardening,” says a family friend.
