Jaya Bachchan celebrated her 71st birthday in none other than Dubai! The veteran Bollywood actress was spotted after her birthday celebrations at local restaurant, Trèsind, along with Shweta Bachchan, her and Amitabh Bachchan's daughter. Jaya was seen wearing a simple white kurta and some traditional jewelry to match. As someone who is infamously known for disliking being photographed by papparazzi, this was a rare occasion of seeing Jaya out and about. Shweta reportedly hosted this fun birthday bash as a fun time out for her mother.
Jaya Bachchan, known as Jaya Badhuri before her marriage to Amitabh, is a prolific Bollywood actress in her own right. Though her latest acting appearance was just a cameo in the film Ki & Ka, she is known for her performances in classics such as Guddi, Abhimaan, Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham and Kal Ho Naa Ho.
Shweta on the other hand was seen in a simple white t-shirt and jeans.
Shweta later posted this lovely photo to her Instagram to celebrate her mother's birthday. The snap shows Jaya sweetly hugging her daughter from behind, looking totally content with the display of affection. Shweta captioned the photo "O Captain My Captain", an apparent reference to the Robin Williams classic film Dead Poets Society.
Meanwhile, Abhishek Bachchan didn't shy away from wishing his mom on her big day either. He shared this throwback of Jaya in her younger days, looking totally elegant and the picture of beauty. Ever the doting son, Abhishek wished his "Ma" a happy birthday with a simple "Love you."
