Jaya Bachchan turned a year older on April 9 but there were no celebrations to ring in her 69th birthday! This decision was made keeping in mind their dear Bahu, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan.
Ash recently lost her father Krishnaraj Rai and keeping her loss in mind, her in-laws resolved to not have any celebrations or parties at the Bachchan house.
A family friend has been quoted by a popular daily, "Because of Aishwarya's father's demise, there was no celebration, no party, not even a family get-together. Aishwarya is in Mangalore with Aaradhya for some rituals. Jaya was in Delhi, while Amitji was in Mumbai. Abhishek joined Ash in Mangalore. So, it was a very subdued birthday this time for Jaya with the family scattered in different cities." (sic)
However, Jaya tried to spend her special day with her daughter Shweta Nanda's in-laws who reside in Delhi.
"She likes her 'alone' time away from everyone just reading, walking and gardening." (sic)
