Aaradhya Bachchan marked her 12th birthday on the 16th of November. To celebrate this significant occasion, Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai delightedly shared endearing snapshots of their daughter.

Aishwarya penned a deeply emotional note for her beloved daughter, alongside sharing a childhood selfie featuring both mother and daughter beaming with adorable smiles. The intimate selfie appeared to have been captured at home, and while posting the photo, Aishwarya expressed her affectionate sentiments, addressing her daughter as her ‘darling angel’. She expressed boundless love, writing,

“I LOVE YOU infinitely, unconditionally, forever, and beyond my darling Angel Aaradhya. You are the absolute love of my life… I breathe for you… my soul… HAPPY HAPPY HAPPIEST 12th BIRTHDAY. God Bless you always ALLWAYS. Thank you for being YOU… precious love… I love you the mostestestestestestestestestestestestest. You are the bestestestestestestestestestestestest.”

Numerous fans and colleagues showered Aaradhya with affectionate wishes, resulting in millions of likes for the touching mother-daughter selfie.

Abhishek Bachan with daughterAbhishek also shared heartfelt moments with his daughter, including a childhood picture where baby Aaradhya, clad in a white dress, gazed at her father while Abhishek lovingly held her in his lap. The picture depicted a beautiful bond between father and daughter.

However, a notable absence came from Amitabh Bachchan, who refrained from publicly wishing for his granddaughter on social media. Netizens, while acknowledging and appreciating the warm wishes from Aishwarya and Abhishek, couldn’t help but notice the absence of the patriarch.

This silence echoed a similar instance from a few days prior when no public birthday wishes were extended to Aishwarya on her 50th birthday. The Bachchan family is known for guarding their personal lives, and not everything finds its way onto social media. Consequently, some netizens speculated about potential discord within the Bachchan family amidst these apparent omissions.
