Mother-in-law Jaya Bachchan, who organised Ash’s baby shower made sure that it was a grand affair by inviting the who’s who from B-town. Beta Abhishek and Karan Johar were the only men invited…

“Good morning everyone and thank you so much for all the wishes on Aishwarya’s Godh Bharai, read out some of the messages to her,” tweeted Abhishek Bachchan. Dressed in a white kurta embellished with gold, junior Bachchan came out of his house and greeted his guests and the media thronging outside Jalsa, just to get a glimpse of the to-be-mother. Bipasha Basu, Twinkle Khanna, Urmila Matondkar and others were spotted in their traditional avatar and all of them looked as stunning as ever. Veteran actors Asha Parekh and Dimple Kapadia also attended the ceremony to give their blessings to the Bachchan bahu. Abhishek also wrote on the microblogging site Twitter that after a day filled with customs and traditions, he has to get back to shooting for Players. Now we totally understand his situation – who would feel like getting back to the grind after such an exciting day that meant so much to the whole Bachchan family? Fashion designer Shaina NC shared her experience after making an appearance at the ceremony. She said that it was lovely to see the glowing mother. Now we already managed get a feel of this happening soiree. Women sashaying around with mehndi on their hands, wearing exotic saris, the daddy-to-be flaunting his ethnic ensemble, a deluge of gifts being showered on the most famous mommy in B-town…now that’s some happening affair!
