Amitabh Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan addressed the media after bringing home Beti B and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan. Aishwarya Rai also made a brief surprise appearance during the conference.
"We are very happy. Goddess Lakshmi has come to our family and we have brought Lakshmi ratna home. We are happy to have a daughter. This is what Abhishek and Jaya wanted," said Amitabh addressing the reports.
“We took her to Prateeksha first because that is our first home. We took my father's blessings and then came to Jalsa,” he added.
Abhishek Bachchan said that feeling of being Paa hasn’t yet sunk in.
"I'm still getting used to the fact that I'm a father now. It's still sinking in because for me the definition of father is Amitabh Bachchan. I haven't got used to it yet," he said.
"She's very sweet, obedient and very cooperative. Shant hai, zyada roti nahi hai (She's quiet and doesn't cry much),” he added.
Amitabh Bachchan said that his Granddaughter resembled Aishwarya Rai for now at least.
"I think she resembles Aishwarya, but you know that children change and some people in the family think she has some resemblance to Abhishek,” said Big B
When asked if there was going to be a big celebration he said, “"No big celebration. People are visiting, they are welcome. That's about it.”
The media might just have to call the baby girl Beti B a bit longer as the Bachchan family hasn’t zeroed in on the name.
"We are still thinking on the name. It's just a thought that it should start with A. There won't be any naamkaran. As soon as we decide upon a name, we'll keep it," he said.
He once again thanked the media for their co-operation.
"I'm thankful to the media for following the regulations issued for coverage. The media kept their promise. I never asked the I & B (Information and broadcast) ministry to do it. Broadcast Editors Association (BEA) had issued the regulations,” he said.
He also said that he was happy that media brought to light that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan had a normal delivery.
"Aishwarya wanted to have a normal delivery. She was in acute labor for two-three hours and refused to take any pain killers. She acted brave all through,” he said.
When asked his future plans he replied, “KBC is over and have no film in hand right now. Main bekaar hoon (I'm unemployed)."
"He's in full duty of his granddaughter,” Abhishek immediately corrected him.
