The five-year-old is all set to ring her grand birthday celebrations with a special person on November 20

True to their celebratory self, the entire Bachchan parivaar donned pink ensembles on November 16 last year, for Aaradhya's princess-themed fourth birthday. And while this year, she didn't have such a huge party on her birthday, Aaradhya will nevertheless enjoy a delayed but grander celebration with the entire family.

If you recall, last year we saw the entire family dressed in Aaradhya's favourite colour and the birthday girl was no exception. She donned a gorgeous pink gown with a tiara, in keeping with the theme.

She also had dadi Jaya Bachchan, dadu Amitabh Bachchan and doting dad Abhishek dressed in the same colour and even got to cut a cake in the shape of a castle.

While all the preparations were spearheaded by doting mum Aishwarya, this year will be no different, except just one thing. The five-year-old will ring in her grand birthday bash with nanu on his birthday on Sunday (November 20).

Aaradhya's 5th birthday celebrations begin

The 43-year-old actor is making sure that that the reported venue, which is the Bachchan family house Prateeksha, is decked up to the tee for yet another princess-themed party.

Ash is planning Aaradhya's 5th birthday party

A source close to the family revealed, "Ash is busy planning Aaradhya’s birthday party, which will be celebrated on November 20, as it’s her father Krishnaraj Rai’s birthday that day. The Rais and the Bachchans along with a host of B-Town celebs and their wives will be seen at Prateeksha joining in the double celebration."

So how does the belated birthday girl feel about a delayed celebration? Well, she is reportedly "thrilled" to share her birthday party with her nanu, and is giving inputs on what she wants at the party.

The source also added, "Aaradhya is thrilled to celebrate it with her nana this time and has been participating in the decorations herself. Krishnaraj’s favourite dishes have been included on the menu.”

But that's not all, the final theme and the props have also been decided and they are sure to keep Beti B occupied throughout her party.

Preparations of Aaradhya's 5th birthday

While the family could've easily celebrated Aaradhya's birthday on November 16, they have chosen to postpone the celebrations to a weekend.

This way, they can invite all of Beti B's close pals and also friends of Abhishek and Aishwarya including Sonali Bendre and husband Goldie Behl among others.

As as she wanted last year, this year also the birthday girl wants a princess-themed birthday party with her favourite colour splashed across the props.

The source revealed, "Aaradhya wants a princess theme so life-size cutouts will be there all over and everyone is expected to dress in pink as that’s Aaradhya’s favourite colour. Last year, everything was decorated in pink with a pink cake in the shape of a castle.”

Dad wishes his beti

As for wishes for her birthday, Aaradhya got her closest family members wishing her in the sweetest possible way. Doting dad Abhishek posted a sweet message and a sketch made by his fan.

Amitabh's message for his Aaradhya bitiya

As Aaradhya turned five, dadu Amitabh Bachchan couldn't contain his excitement and happiness and posted a heartfelt message for his "most beautiful granddaughter."

Along with the post, he also posted a picture of his granddaughter at her small at-home birthday party, which the family celebrated on November 16.

Here's a look at his message for Aaradhya.

The most beautiful grand daughter in the whole wide world celebrates her birth today though she turns 5, her countenance lingers close to 55 ! The children of this generation are so .. extraordinarily bright, self assured, and knowing all that happens around them .. and more ..

Innocence on their faces is nothing to go by .. they know they have they are accomplished .. no coochi – cooing shall ever be able to get a response that a coochi-coo, would contemplate to give ..
They shall look at your face with that utmost expression of lingering ‘ who what where ‘ and then suddenly slam you with a comment that shall perhaps give you sufficient time to register and get back ..

The concentration that engulfs their thought process, is far superior to any of the giant computer systems that the world may have invented to register, calibrate and store all that the world speaks or makes noises of .. but rest assured that all your jargon or speech therapies that they seem to be paying attention to is a register of their actual thoughts .. no ..

Their actual thoughts are probably at the proceedings that happen elsewhere .. the attitudes that others play up in her presence, her own interpretation of them .. which one shall never be able to gauge, and which shall be used at an appropriate time and place .. unknown to us, yet known when it occurs ..

Who really are we to decide what is there for them .. what is their feel of matters .. why do they indulge in such manner .. we never can tell .. their Mother’s can at times, but not us .. that then is the exclusivity of the 5 year old .. !! The grandmother temperament at the age of 5 going on 50 ..And it is love .. love of the gentleness of their presence .. love of their warm cuddle .. love of their concern at times of concern .. and the love of their love for us .. those little gestures, those endearing modes of conduct .. and their

And it is love .. love of the gentleness of their presence .. love of their warm cuddle .. love of their concern at times of concern .. and the love of their love for us .. those little gestures, those endearing modes of conduct .. and their softness.

Here's wishing Aaradhya Bachchan a very happy belated birthday!
