Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan turns 77

MUMBAI: It is Amitabh Bachchan's 77th birthday, and daughter Shweta Bachchan was the first one to wish her dad on his special day.

It is no secret that Shweta is quite close to her dad and often shares pictures with him on social media. And Amitabh Bachchan's birthday was no different as she shared an adorable picture of the two on his big day.

Sharing a picture from what seems like a wedding celebration, she wrote, "When you get to the top of the mountain, keep climbing - Happy Birthday Papa I love you endlessly."

In the picture, Shweta can be seen clad in a beautiful saree as she poses with dad Big B.

It was only a day ago that she had shared another throwback picture with her dad. In the black-and-white photo, a very young Shweta can be seen nestled in the arms of Amitabh Bachchan.

She captioned the photo, "Home is not a place, it is a person."

It was on Koffee With Karan that Abhishek Bachchan had revealed that Shweta is the most important person in the room for their dad, no matter who else is in the room.

Big B took to Twitter to thank everyone for sending in birthday wishes. The 77-year-old actor wrote, "My immense gratitude and gratefulness to them that send their wishes for the 11th .. I cannot possibly thank each one individually .. but each one of you reside in my heart .. my love to you.."
