Bachchan reveals name of newest grandchild
INDIA: Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan has revealed the name
of his baby granddaughter on Twitter, putting an end to months of
“Her name is Aaradhya,” Bachchan tweeted to a curious fan late
Saturday, breaking months of silence after his daughter-in-law,
Bollywood actress and former Miss World Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, gave
birth in Mumbai in November 2011. Aaradhya’s birth was shrouded in
secrecy, with media organisations reportedly agreeing to avoid rolling
coverage of the event or show pictures of the infant, despite her
belonging to one of Bollywood’s most famous families.
Aaradhya (whose name means “one worthy of devotion” in Sanskrit) was
quickly christened “Beti (daughter) B” by reporters in the weeks
following her birth.
