The Black actor wasn’t in a mood to celebrate after daughter-in-law Aishwarya’s father passed away earlier this year.

Amitabh Bachchan’s vehement rejection of birthday celebrations this year has a reason. A member of the Bachchan family spills the beans — “Aishwarya lost her father this year. Nonetheless, she went ahead and planned a 75th birthday party for the patriarch of the house. When Amitabh got wind of it, he immediately put an end to the plans without telling Aishwarya or anyone why he wanted the birthday celebrations annulled this year. Jayaji just accepted Bachchan’s request and asked the family to think of a vacation outside Mumbai for the birthday.”

The family took off for a vacation on the eve of Bachchan’s birthday. Explains a member of the family, “If we stayed back, there would be pressure from friends, fans and well-wishers to kickstart his birthday celebrations. Amitabh doesn’t know how to say no to those who request his attention. It was best to simply fly away.”
