Big B mum on Beti B's name
Megastar Amitabh Bachchan preferred to kept media guessing on the name of the newest entrant to his family, who has been nicknamed as Beti B. Gossip mills were abuzz that star couple Abhishek and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's daughter, has finally got a name 'Aaradhya' last month. But since then the Bachchan family has neither confirmed nor denied about the same.
When senior Bachchan was asked if Beti B was named Aaradhya, he said, "We will talk about it sometime later...not now." He was speaking at his second media appearance, i.e Vidhu Vinod Chopra festival, post his abdominal surgery on February 11.
Various names like Aaliya, Abhilasha were cropped up for Beti B. Abhishek had earlier denied it saying, his daughter was not named as Aaliya. Also, there were reports that the picture and name of Beti B would be revealed at the American Talk Show host Oprah Winfrey's show. But again that was denied by the Bachchan family.
Both Big B and son Abhishek had earlier said that there would be no naming ceremony for the little angel as the family does not believe in it. Bachchans have been fiercely protective of the latest member of the family ever since Aishwarya gave birth to the daughter on November 16 last year. When asked about his health post surgery, Bachchan said, "I am fine now...much better." (PTI)
