Jaya Bachchan turned 72 on Thursday and on the occasion, daughter Shweta took to social media to share a throwback photo from the time when she and Abhishek were kids.
To wish her mother, Shweta borrowed a few lines from e e cummings’ poem I Carry Your Heart With Me and wrote, “I carry your heart with me (I carry it in my heart) I am never without it (anywhere I go you go…) – Happy birthday, Mama; I love you (with a little help from e e cummings).”
Instead of a throwback picture, Abhishek picked one of Jaya Bachchan’s recent photographs and said that even though she is staying away from them in Delhi due to the lockdown, they all are “thinking” about her and carrying her in their hearts. He wrote, “As every child will tell you, their favourite word is… Ma! Happy birthday, Ma. Although you are away in Delhi due to the lockdown and we all are here in Mumbai, know that we are thinking of you and carry you in our hearts. I love you!”
