It was a special moment for the Bachchans as they welcomed the youngest member into the family home Jalsa in Mumbai. "Goddess Lakshmi has come to our family and we have brought Lakshmi ratna home," said Amitabh. "We took her to Prateeksha first because that is our first home. We took my father's blessings and then came to Jalsa," said Amitabh while addressing the media for the first time after the birth of his granddaughter last week.
The megastar said that he has all the time to take care of the baby. "Currently, I am not working on any project. I have just finished with 'Kaun Banega Crorepati' and have no film on hand right now." He then added, "Actually, I have no work right now." Abhishek immediately retorted: "Who said you have no work? You are fully responsible to take care of your granddaughter."
Stating that the baby girl was quiet and mellow, Abhishek said: "She is obedient and very cooperative. She does not cry or fuss too much."Amitabh agreed. "We are happy to have a baby girl. Abhishek and Jaya got what they wanted," he said. Will they have a big naming function for the newborn? "We generally do not have a grand naming ceremony. When we find a name, we will start calling her so," he said. "But it has to start with the letter A," said Abhishek, admitting that it would still take time for the feeling to sink in.
However, he was confident that he would be able to manage both work and family as he got the "right training" from his parents who never missed any important occasion in his or his sister Shweta's life.
The Bachchans also thanked media for respecting their privacy. Amitabh, however, refused to share the picture of the baby. "I think she resembles Aishwarya, but you know that children change and some people in the family think she has some resemblance to Abhishek," he said.
