Jaya Bachchan, her daughter Shweta Bachchan Nanda shared an endearing birthday post on Instagram. Instead of a throwback picture, Shweta picked a photo from one of the recent events, for which Jaya Bachchan, 71 today, wore a white suit while Shweta was dressed in a black saree. “O Captain! My Captain!” she captioned it alluding to Walt Whitman’s poem. On the other hand, Shweta’s actor brother Abhishek shared a throwback picture of Jaya Bachchan and wrote: “Ma. The word says it all. Happy Birthday Ma. Love you.” In few words, Shweta and Abhishek described the role Jaya Bachchan plays in their lives and that’s just adorable.
